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.

Bottle. It pours a clear body, dark amber in body and a small but dense, beige head. Caramel, a touch of spices and oranges, vienna malt and some hints of ginger. Some ginger and spicyness in the flavor too, and the orange shines through as well, leaving room for lightly roasted, caramellish malts. A bit low on bitterness I think, and I would like it more full-bodied, else it’s a damn fine almost sessionable beer. Well suited for making snowmen. 110524

Nice dark brown almost blackish pour in the glass. Nose and taste is warming malts, caramels and wheat. Rated 2/3/2000

A: This one pours a clear, rich amber color with two fingers of off-white head and very nice lacing. S: I’m not all that big of a fan of the nose on this. It’s very malty, with a lot of caramel, and it seems to be incredibly spicy. I’m okay with some mild spice in a beer, but this one is a bit too much. T: The taste is better than the nose, that’s 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 it’s rather full bodied as well. I haven’t 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. I’m not the biggest fan of bocks, but I found this one to be fairly enjoyable and wouldn’t 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 (15194) - 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).

2.9
DSG (14784) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 2, 2008
Bottle. 5.6% ABV. Very pretty amber color with a big slowly-diminishing beige head. Spicy nose with ginger and some hints of cinnamon, some malt and caramel and notes of wheat. Flavor is sweet with malt and caramel, spices, rather faint hints of wheat and some light sourness towards the finish. Light to medium-bodied. Doesn’t taste like a Weizen Bock and nothing great whatever style it actually is. OK.
