Had a tap at Miller Park on Opening Day:

A=Rich reddish amber color with nice, albeit short, foamy white head.

S=Faint smell of hops

T=I didn't know what this beer was when my brother bought it for me, and I guessed a few lighter ambers, e.g. Capital. Slightly malty, slightly sweet--a touch of black cherry and bread.

M=Rather light body (read: a bit too watery)

O=Meh...it was okay, but not spectacular...I would not buy it, but would choose it over other BMC beers...not as good as Third Shift or Batch 19.

Aroma: Caramel with a hint of hops.

Appearance: Reddish with a hint of gold. White bubbly (carbonated) head that lingers for a while.

Taste: You can taste the Carmel immediately. Has a clean finish and is refreshing. There is a slight hint of hops, but not a lot. The Carmel is not overwhelming.

Mouthfeel: Light body, medium-light carbonation, crisp.

Overall: One of my favorite Leinenkugel's brews. Worth the money at the ballpark, but I wish I could get it at the local store. The beer is clean and easy to drink but has a unique sweetness that makes it special. The beer feels like it belongs in a ballpark along side cracker jacks and hot dogs.
