I do not like Leinenkugel beers. They are the soda of the beer world. They are like coke 2 compared to coke. It is like they add sweeteners.
looked good in the glass medium brown with an off white head. Head is gone soon after it appeared.
Smelled like a medium roasty malt beverage. Lots of chocolate.
When I first tasted this I was weirded out. It tasted like chocolate to me. I was wondering why they called this a nut brown ale if t was so choco. Thebn I realized that I was tasting Hazelnuts. I associate hazelnuts with chocolate so this is what caused my confusion.
I was taken aback by the change in flavor profile, but once I realized it It wasn't bad. Still the flavoring was a bit off. Did they use nuts or extract. It was a little to strong in nutty goodness. ease up.
I won't buy this again.
