Hazy Shade Of Winter

I am a hard core Blue Moon fan. I get annoyed when there is no orange. My second choice is usually Yuengling or sometimes Heifewiesen. The only beers I will never drink are Guiness and the Scottish one that tastes like food. However, I tend to get Blue Moon or Yuengling. The other day though, probably while watching The Hills, I saw the commercial for Samuel Adams Winter Lager. I am quite familiar with the Sam Adams beers since those are what my guy boos tend to drink the most...and I, of course, always take a sip or two.

Anyway, this commercial. Is. A. Winner. It totally worked in its efforts to make me want to try this new beer. It describes the beer as if it is an extension of winter and if there's one thing I love, it's winter! Check out this description from their website:

The first thing one notices in a Samuel Adams® Winter Lager is its color: the deep brown of winter. Then comes the magical aroma which promises something special on the tongue. The warm aroma of cinnamon and ginger which blends with the roasty sweetness of the malted barley and hint of citrus from the orange peel. And after that first sip the promise is fulfilled. On the palate Samuel Adams® Winter Lager is rich and full bodied, robust and warming, a wonderful way to enjoy the cold evenings that come with this season.

So I had my first winter lager last night before heading to the bar and I liked it so much I continued drinking it at happy hour. It is some good yum yum!

i'll have to look that up this year. the Sam Adams TV commericals are always great, and your plug tips the scales.

I'm surprised that you didn't blog about Brad Pitt, since yesterday was his b-day and all!
