A blog where I share my various daily reviews of beer and try to do so in an entertaining way while helping people find beer that they may want to try. Occasionally, I will also share various beer news items as well from around the beer world and offer my perspectives from here in Cincinnati, Ohio.
One of my beer runs brought me across this one from Samuel Adams. The Winter Lager comes in at a 5.6% ABV and 22 IBU, so it can be expected to be more of a malty pleasantry. It’s noted to have a nice mix of flavors, so let’s see how it compares.
German brewers were onto something centuries ago when they created rich bock beers for the
winter. Our version is spiced with cinnamon, ginger, and orange peel for a deep
flavor and malty finish that will warm you on a cold winter’s night.
