I think Winter Lager is the best beer Sam makes. Most of their beers I enjoy, but won't go crazy over. The Winter Lager on the other hand I can't get enough of.

Count me in as another who really enjoys the Winter Lager. In my case we have a BW3 that has it on tap and Giant Eagle always carry it. I personally like it better out of the bottle than on tap.

Guess it's just a matter of personal taste.

My favorite Sam Adams in general is the Boston Ale.

Sam winter is my favorite Sam seasonal. I look forward to it coming every Oct/Nov and I'm upset when it leaves in Feb. The one that follows, White Ale, is my least favorite Sam Adams beer. other than Cranberry Lambic of course.

I usually pick up a six of the sam seasonal whenever I'm at the store. Everyone that comes over will drink it and usually think its great. Granted these people also offer me Miller Lite, so I guess its all relative.

I found the Winter Lager pretty so-so. I have some Boston Ale in the fridge that I just can't seem to finish off; I found that it's a little too sweet for my tastes.

One that I would like to try, but haven't yet, is Sam's Imperial Pilsner... but what can I say, the guys at Sam's make pretty decent beer when put into perspective. My favorite is the old standby, Boston Lager. The best thing about it is that you can find it anywhere!

Primary 1: House Ale (yay!)
Primary 2: empty
Primary 3: empty
Primary 4: empty
Bottle Conditioning: Apfelwein
Bottle Conditioning: Apfelwein + Blueberry
Kegged/Drinking: Partigyle Brown Ale
Conditioning: New House Barley Wine
Conditioning: Ghetto canned kit bitter (Surprisingly getting better w/ age)
Just Finished: Edwort's Apfelwein
Up next: More House Ale ?!?
