Appearance: Samuel Adams Winter Lager pours a copper colour along with small amounts of carbonation and a medium-sized yellow-brown crown which resides rather quickly and leaves barely no lacing.
Smell: First and foremost a caramelly, and to some extent citrus fruit/ginger, freshness.
Taste: Sweet and full maltiness, the caramel makes a reappearence -- and whadda ya know, it brought some friends! Namely a tad of sourness (the citrus fruit in the smell), the hops in form of a slight, but still farily distinct, bitterness and they all stay for the palate-party (even though some of them did make a late arrival) with great results!
Mouthfeel: Almost as creamy as they come, full and adequately medium-to-low in carbonation.
Drinkability: Oh how I wish this wasn't my last one (I have been saving it for almost a year now)! And I do wish so primarily due to the fact that it holds a balance between the -- almost -- equally satisfying smell and taste experiences, wich qualifies Sam' Adams Winter Lager as a definite "let's have another one, eh?!"-er!
