110. Samuel Adams Winter Lager (draft)

Another beer that I originally reviewed from a bottle (review #79) but again I enjoyed it more on draft. Still a bit watery compared to the old Winter Lager from 3 or 4 years ago but still enjoyable and went well with my meal. Color is a deep orange with a nice small head, leaving quite a bit of lacing on the glass. Slight spicy aroma and minimal hop finish. Very smooth and enjoyable on a cold winter day.

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.
