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.

begbie100 (181) - Oulu, - DEC 15, 2009
0,33l bottle. Cream colored soapy head. Clear Light brown color. Aroma of Syurup, tatels, mandarin and sweet malts. Semi thick palate with tickling fizzy carbonation. A little bit bitterness in flavor, tatels, citrus. Mild spicy hoppy ending. Can’t find cinnamon or wheat in this tho. All around balanced beer.

On tap at Newark Airport, New York. Pours a clear mahogany colour with a creamy beige head. Malty aroma of leather, bread, fudge and grass. Flavour of cloves, leather, caramel and bread crust. Has a slick mouth feel, light to medium body and a light bitterness. A malty and balanced lager with a nice spicy touch.

12/19/17 Had with Mark and Sarah on an improvised beer night. Look: almost opaque with a tan head. Look: clear copper without much head. I like the Christmas tree label. Nose: malty/lager smell with slight hops Taste: follows the smell + some cinnamon/warm spices Palate: medium/ mouthfeel and goes down easy Overall: Good flavor but not as assertive as it could be. Definitely not my favorite from Sam Adams.

Basic winter lager. Smooth but unoriginal lager provides a basic but unoffensive brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

markas101 (2546) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2017
33 cl bottle, Ann Arbor, MI. Caramel colour and aroma. Sweet, slightly metallic flavour. Not overly complex.

thejackpacker (764) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2017
Bottle from systembolaget, Östersund. Not so sure about this one and leads off the Nils Oscar other winter lager hanging about. It has some spices added (cinnamon etc) which sure gives it a hint of festivity but it feels disjointed. Overall a bit soapy.
