COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bold and rich, with a touch of holiday spice. The first thing one notices about a Samuel Adams® Winter Lager is the deep ruby color. Then comes the magical aroma which promises something special on the tongue. The cinnamon, ginger, and hint of citrus from the orange peel blend with the roasty sweetness of the malts to deliver a warming, spicy flavor. On the palate Samuel Adams Winter Lager is rich and full bodied, robust and warming, a wonderful way to enjoy the cold evenings that come with the season.

Vackert bärnstensfärgad med medelstort gräddfärgat skum. Kryddig doft med kanel, ingefära, pomerans och mörk limpa. Smaken är maltsöt och kryddig – ingefära, kanel – med pomerans och torkad frukt och en fin beska som balanserar sötman. En skön och kryddig julöl.

From winter classic variety pack. 6 oz (half bottle) served in tulip glass. Beer is amber in color. One finger head dissipates quickly leaving some reasonable lacing. Aroma is weak but mostly light malts and ginger. Taste is lightly sweet with light maltiness acompanied by notes of orange and some cinnamon. Medium carbonation and light to medium bodied beer. Overall not a bad easy drinking winter beer. Would not buy a solid case, but worth trying.

Can during United flight from Chicago to Amsterdam. Nice amber colour, offwhite creamy head. Caramel malty, spicy and herbal, couch syrupy, liquorice, cinnamon; can’t really get the ginger and orange peel. Not too balanced. Medium body and carbonation.

Pours amber with a quick off white head. Nose is mild but pleasant with some sweetnes and a touch of herb. Flavor is a surprisingly rich sweet bread with a little fruit and spice. Finish is long and substantial. a very good beer for what it is

I’ve finally found my goto beer for the holiday season. This is probably the 10th limited edition holiday brew I’ve tried and I don’t need to look any further. A robust brew with a non overpowering hint of spice and an extremely crisp finish. Cheers!
