3.25/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

This one surprised me a bit and I mean that in a good way. Pours out to a near-black in the glass with a decent-sized head. Aroma is light and of malt and cocoa. The taste is that of a light, roasted malt combined with a hint of chocolate but comes off a bit on the thin side. Slightly watery to average moutfhfeel, but highly drinkable.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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)
