Lienenkugel's "Classic Amber" pours stunning golden amber from a 12 oz twist off cap brown glass bottle with a freshness date of 06229, or June, 22, 2009.

Head went to well over 2 fingers before dropping to a thin ring of foam with a freckle or two of foam here and there on the otherwise flat surface.

Nose is a damp citrus sour with just a hint of cardboard. Palate is a thin well bittered sour, with no malt sweetness, and of course, the bight of carbonation.

The first thing I did after trying this beer was to check out the date on the bottle. The date was good, the beer was not.

This beer came in a well sealed 12 pack from a refrigerated display at a grocery store that sells a lot of beer.

2 thumbs down for this one.
