Samuel Adams Winter Lager is a dark wheat bock. Bock beers are traditionally strong dark lagers.

This beer is a lager, and hence not a Weizenbock (an ale).

(From backlog.) On-tap at Carraba's. Looking at the pour, it seems just like Boston Lager: bronze liquid with a smallish ecru cap, and radiant translucence. There is a small amount of hop character in the nose, which plays out as fruity-floral and spicy on the palate, atop a dry and biscuity malt base. Again, I see very little difference between this and Boston Lager. Nice feel, very crisp. Easy drinking overall, although I prefer BBCSABL over BBCSAWL.

Sam Adams Winter Lager

Pours a dark brown with an off white head. Aroma of caramel, roasted malt, alittle sweetness. Tastes like a pretty balanced lager, some sugary malts, faint spices and a light roasted flavor. Mellow and easy to drink. Medium bodied. Decent beer and always worth getting in the colder months.
