Beer of the week: Samuel Adams Winter Lager (Evan S. Benn, 12/12/13, Miami Herald)

This malt-forward lager is brewed with a blend of Indonesian and Vietnamese cinnamon as well as orange peel and ginger, giving it a flavor that's in tune with the holiday season. It's not a spice bomb like other winter beers, and it's not heavy, despite its deep ruby-brown color. Bocks like Samuel Adams Winter Lager were traditionally brewed by monks in preparation for Lenten fasting.
