Got this on tap at a place that had the entire leines line, but nothing else. I knew better, but tried it anyway.
It arrived in a glass, and it looked like a coke with a ring of froth. I guess the ring made it beer-like, so it wasn't all that bad looking. It did look inviting enough to try.
There wasn't much smell about it, not real interesting.
Taste was like beer. Kinda like a mass produced beer with dark flavor and color added. Whoopee. At least you could drink it without wretching with disgust, so I guess it was drinkable.
Mouthfeel was pretty bad. Like pop, but thinner, with less sparkley enjoyment and a layer of that dark beer flavor. If you want mouthfeel, get the cola, it is better.
Drinkable? I guess. I wouldn't get another. Next time I'll just stick to soda.
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)
