Had it on tap at Buffalo Wild Wings, whose only decent beers on tap were of the Leine's ilk. This beer has the least clever name ever. This beer is creamy and dark. I don't even know what style they were going for when they made this, but it is average overall (better than berry and honey weiss, not as good as red or oktoberfest

Serving type: on-tap

Sampled last night on 6/25/14 but had this one in the past. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a classic tulip "Augsburger" beer glass from the early 1980's.

Pours a very deep brown in color with some ruby highlights with almost a 1-finger beige head. Some spotty lacing is seen which each sip. The aroma is of roasted malts with a hint of chocolate and caramel. The taste is pretty much the same with a slight bitter and dry finish, but doesn't linger. Good carbonation. Overall going with a solid '7

Lienenkugel Creamy Dark Appearance is cola with light brown on the edge when held to a light~ Odor of Mushrooms and Flowers~ I firmly believe that Leinenkugel is marketing and pricing adjunct ale as craft beer~ I wouldn't ever buy it personally, I acquired one as part of a gift pack~ I suppose it's an upgrade above most commercial beers, some mild creaminess but not much~ Leaves the palette watery and expecting more, very blah and boring. Caramel Malt, Smoke, Some Grass, some Toffee and just enough roasted malt to make it drinkable~ It is smooth~ That said, so is Budweiser which shares a 5%ABV~ I'm gonna call PHONY on Leinenkugel! Overall: 4.3 (out of 10)
