Medium brown beer. Creamy white head not super thick. Poured out of a bottle. Smells of some baking spices and roast. Tate follows. Mouthfeel is fairly thin. Overall pretty good beer but I’d probably rather just have the regular lager. Or on winter just something standard without the spices.

Samuel Adams Winter Lager | Boston Beer Company (Samuel Adams). Poured from the the bottle into a pint glass, this has a three finger thick light tan head, webbed lacing. and a deep reddish amber body.

Smells like masterfully roasted, full bodied malts. Also picking up the cinnamon and ginger mentioned on the labeling.

I taste hearty grains with not very much of a spice flavor, just a mild sweetness from the malts.

Medium mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

I'll rate Samuel Adams Winter Lager | Boston Beer Company (Samuel Adams) with a 4.

Samuel Adams Winter Lager brewed by Boston Beer Company, with an ABV of 5.60% This German Bock pours out of a 12oz glass bottle into a a pint beer glass. A super nice mid brownish almost copper color with a nice small off white head. Decent amount of lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. Really digging the copper color of this brew. The smell is rich with roasted grains and malts. Then a nice mix of citrus with spices. You mostly pick up on cinnamon an ginger. The smells of the holidays. So far Samuel Adams Winter Lager is a nice inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is Bold with flavors. You first pick up the light roasted grains and malts, then a mild amount of spices. The spices are a nice touch to this brew. This brew has a super nice balance to it, there is nothing overpowering about this brew. This brew would go nice with dinner or on a cold winter day. The body of this German Bock is a solid medium. The mouth feel is Bold, Spices, Rich , Clean Smooth and Refreshing. Overall I am going to give Samuel Adams Winter Lager a 4.25 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Boston Beer Company (Samuel Adams), did a super nice job with German Bock.

Poured from bottle into tulip glass. Poured a deep amber with a nice white head. Dominant malts with a hint of spice in the aroma. Taste followed the nose, malts with a hint of cinnamon? Medium bodied with a spicy or faint sour finish. A good brew but I didn't get much of the flavor promised on the label.
