Samuel Adams Winter Lager

Samuel Adams
Review by Matthew Coers
RATING 4/5

Samuel Adams rightfully claims a leadership role alongside brands such as Anchor Steam in the craft-brewing renaissance of the late 80s and early 90s; although because of their size, it would be hard to accuse Sam Adams of being a �craft brewer� today.

Despite their size, Sam Adams has paid more than a passing interest in the home brewing crowd with their home brewing competitions and Ed Koch�s public acknowledgements that the first batches of Sam Adams beer were made in his kitchen.

Although many aficionados don�t give them the credit they deserve, Sam Adams really does make some great beers � especially their seasonal brews. For the 2007/2008 winter season, Samuel Adams has created their Winter Lager, and I would have to say that it lives up to the reputation that Sam Adams has built around their seasonal product lines to date.

The Samuel Adams Winter Lager is a Dark Wheat Lager, but if you don�t normally like wheat beers, don�t let that scare you away. While most wheat beers are subtly hopped in order to allow the wheat malt taste to come through, the Winter Lager is very flavorful with plenty of cinnamon, spices and hops.

The wheat taste is certainly there, but there are plenty of other flavors present as well. The beer really does have multiple layers of flavor as you drink - but not too much.

In fact, I found that I purchased several six packs over the course of a few weeks � not because I was writing this review, but just because I like it that much. I think you�ll like it too, so I�m giving it a 4 out of 5.


A drunken man gets on the bus late one night, staggers up the aisle, and sits next to an elderly woman.

She looks the man up and down and says, "I've got news for you. You're going straight to hell!"

The man jumps up out of his seat and shouts, "Man, I'm on the wrong bus!"
