2.42/5  rDev -21.9%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

I can't say my hopes were high going in on this one, Leinekugel hasn't impressed, but the hops listed have me a bit more interested.

Sadly the pour ends all hope I fear. Light light orange just way out of line for an Amber.

The nose doesn't show any signs of hops. Reminds me a good bit of an Oktoberfest in the nose, really?

I think there are hops in this one, but the caramel grain malt dominates.

Far better than I expected from this brewer, but both the marketing and the style claims are out of line. The final verdict always comes back to taste and while it is far from offensive, it isn't going to win too many people over. A bland beer from a bland brewer.
