Pours a nice copper-amber color, decent clarity with a beige colored head that left a surprisingly nice amount of lacing. Nice mix of aromas on the nose, albeit overall very faint. Spices, malts, bread, yeast, cinnamon, orange zest, maybe a bit of ginger, and a slight hint of floral hops. Smooth and creamy to the mouth, starting off with a hefty helping of carbonation. First come the yeasty-bready flavors following quickly by the spices. The beer gives a nice warming feel and sensation, it really hits the "winter lager" feel quite well. Hops and bitterness are low, but still present in small amounts to balance out the heavy malt that is relevant throughout.
A tasty winter style lager, Samuel Adams usually does not disappoint. Easy to drink, fairly cheap, and highly sessionable. Drink this one next to a fireplace.
