Winter Lager by Sam Adams 
This seasonal beer is currently available in 6pks for $9.99 or 12pks for $14.99
 
 
 
 
Beer Style:  Winter Lager - Technically, this beer is billed as a dark wheat bock. Bock beers are strong dark lagers.
 
 
Appearance:  Dark amber with some reddish hues, faint head
 
Aroma:  Cinnamon, ginger, spice, malt
 
Mouth-feel:  Full-bodied and smooth
 
Taste:  Similar to the aromas but much maltier in flavor
 
Overall:  This annual winter brew is one of my favorites. The flavors are very well balanced , the spice-cinnamon goes very well with the malt profile (there's enough malt here to almost call this a Scottish ale).
 
There are no real hop flavors present here and the alcohol is mild as well. This is a great winter transition beer from Sam Adams.
 
I would highly recommend for anyone who likes spiced beers or heavier malt brews.
 
 
Cheers,
Beer Guy
