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.

DSG (13906) - 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. Doesnt taste like a Weizen Bock and nothing great whatever style it actually is. OK.

Lubiere (13556) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2005
Dark amber bock with a generous light moka head, lacing. Sweet caramel and fruity esters in aroma, like stewed prunes. In mouth, decent sweet malt with light bananas, caramel, and roasted nuts. Short in mouth. Medium bodied. Nice lighter weizenbock. Bottle is about 1 yr old.

Christian (13341) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2010
Amber with a small off-white head. Weak malty aroma completely covered in christmas cookie and pumpkin pie spice - certainly not my thing. Dry and malty flavour with the spices playing a more balanced part.

Drake (13303) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2008 Bottle. Pours copper with small head. Light lacing. Caramel aroma with a bit of spice. Wheat really comes through in the taste. Could maybe use a bit more bitterness.

Bottle from Tbone_, thanks! Reddish brown color. Caramelly aroma with pineapple. Caramelly sweet flavor with cinnamon. Malty, well balanced, fresh tasting. Only a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Not bad!
