The first thing one notices in a Samuel Adams® Winter Lager is its color: the deep brown of winter. Then comes the magical aroma which promises something special on the tongue. The warm aroma of cinnamon and ginger which blends with the roasty sweetness of the malted barley and hint of citrus from the orange peel. And after that first sip the promise is fulfilled. On the palate Samuel Adams® Winter Lager is rich and full bodied, robust and warming, a wonderful way to enjoy the cold evenings that come with this season.
A spiced wheat bock that's brewed with orange peel, ginger and Vietnamese and Indonesian cinnamons, this is a rich and spicy brew that offers pronounced aromas and flavors of caramel malt, baking spice, stone fruit and toffee. It's medium bodied, with an orange peel and hop bitterness that cuts through the sweet malt core and shows strongest on the finish.
