Ahhh...Sam Adams. I have found most of their offerings to be solid choices...no different with the winter lager. Drank this out of a bottle with April as the notched as the month to drink by for best taste. Got this at my local krogers on sale in the Winter Variety pack. Good looking brew poured into my pint glass. The smell is bready with strong orangy overtones. I think this beer tastes great. Hops and spices from start to finish. Overall a great winter lager. cheers!

Got a 12-pack for $8.99 at Ward's Supermarket.

A: medium copper color with small off white head

S: sweat, clean, with a touch of grassiness and spice

T: well balanced toasted malt and hops with subtle spiciness

M: a little thin but smooth with light carbonation

O: Just one is enough. This is a good bargain when it goes on sale after the season, but not a beer I'd buy normally.
