Texas Toast – Sam Adams!!
Posted by TxHny on November 13, 2007
This week we toast Samuel Adams Winter Lager.
You might be confused by the fact that it is 85 degrees out in beautiful Austin, Texas but we are in fact in Winter. The “cooler” season brings championship games, super bowls and –my other love– delicious winter brews.
I’ve personally always been a fan of the Sam Adams regular brews. Tasty but not too filling. This winter ale follows suit, giving you the robust gingery, cinnamony flaver you want in a winter ale without the heavy, full feeling of a typical dark seasonal dark. First brewed in 1989, the folks at Sam Adams have got this one down – and at 200 calories per beer, this one certainly will let you in on the fun without the guilt. (Other seasonal darks are much higher in caloric intake.)
Is this the best winter/dark beer I’ve ever had? No it is not. Dark beers are a tough category to top out the charts. This is, however, a great beer that many people will enjoy and will go along perfect with your holiday fare.
You can pick up a 6 pack of longnecks at HEB for around $6.50 (nice price!) through January.
I give it 3.5 out of 5.
