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.

A: This one pours a clear, rich amber color with two fingers of off-white head and very nice lacing. S: Im not all that big of a fan of the nose on this. Its very malty, with a lot of caramel, and it seems to be incredibly spicy. Im okay with some mild spice in a beer, but this one is a bit too much. T: The taste is better than the nose, thats for certain. The caramel and malt is quite up front, with the spices much more subdued. M: The fizziness is rather light for a lager and its rather full bodied as well. I havent had this beer in quite some time and I found this to be quite impressive. D: This is a pretty easy drinking beer and one that you could easily have several of in a session. Im not the biggest fan of bocks, but I found this one to be fairly enjoyable and wouldnt turn it down if offered one.

Bottle. Very malty flavour. Bright chestnut colour. Aftertaste is quite spicy. Very nice and easily drinkable. A little too much carbonation for me.

bhensonb (14895) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Aroma of malt, spice and hop?. Deep coppery red color with virtually no head. Starts with lightly spiced malt, continuing with that, finishing with a somewhat flat malt character. Maybe that aroma was not hop. It went really well with milk chocolate coated oat cakes (McVitties).

imdownthepub (14228) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2004
Bottled, pasteurised. Red brown beer with carbonated head. Preferable to the SA Lager if only that there is some flavour coming through. Still another American beer that is too similar to cola, thin sweet short and glutinous, but there is an attempt to get the malted wheat through the mess. Good alcohol though.
