79. Samuel Adams Winter Lager

I have been drinking Sam Adams beer for a long time and I remember Winter Lager being much darker and bolder than the current version. This beer seems watered down and not what I was expecting from a Winter Lager. Color is a deep red with a nice head, carbonation is good with nice head after the pour. Overall the appearance of the beer is very good and minimal aroma. Feel is a bit too watery for me and the taste is simple average. Overall this is not a bad beer and about what you would expect from Samuel Adams. Hoping the others in the Winter variety pack are more unique.

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.
