I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a big fan of lagers in general. Nothing against them, specifically, it’s just that they’re often not particularly interesting. As lagers go, however, Boston Beer Company’s Samuel Adams Winter Lager is a pretty nice one. It’s spiced, which adds a bit of holiday cheer, and a bit of bitter goodness to the middle. The nose and the finish are pretty standard lager. It’s a light to medium bodied beer, which is also a bit of a nice occasional change-up from all of the heavy winter warmers that define the season.
I give it a 3.7 out of 5.
