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. Pours a dark red amber color with a medium frothy off white head.The aroma is a light wheat malt with some hops. Decent lacing on this one. The taste is a wheat malt with a spicy finish but a bit watery. A decent brew from sam adams.

imdownthepub (14557) - 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.

Lubiere (13916) - 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.

Drake (13744) - 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.

Christian (13670) - 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.

BeerandBlues2 (13438) - Escondido, California, USA - MAY 19, 2004
Let me say just what a treat it has been to find a Sam Adams Winter Sampler pack in May and it not be skunky. Dark brown brew with a foamy tan head. Malted wheat and fruit aromas. Bitter and wheat flavor. Full and warming palate.
