Samuel Adams Winter Lager

The Samuel Adams line of beers are from the Boston Brewing Company of Boston, Massachusetts.  This is a 5.6% ABV dark wheat bock brewed with orange peel, cinnamon, and ginger. 

The beer pours medium brown, dark copper and amber in color. There is a half-inch of very thick and smooth, light tan head. The aroma is malty lager, followed by a wave of ginger and cinnamon. The taste follows the aromas; very, very toasted malt, followed by lots of ginger, and a bit of cinnamon. The orange is very mild, giving just a bit of a tang. The beer drinks smooth, yet carbonated. Nothing wrong with this, it just didn't work for me, perhaps too much ginger?
