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 tell-tale sign that summer's finally here is when your favorite local watering hole has updated their Sam Seasonal tap to Summer Ale. A slightly hazy, golden apricot color in the glass, this easy-drinking, warm- weather beer offers attractive notes of lemon, bread dough, allspice and a pinch of white pepper. Flavors of toasted wheat and lemon flesh out the mildly grainy, textured palate. Refreshing, with vibrant carbonation and a clean finish accented by hints of citrus pith.
