Great tasting light caramel colored beer with a sweet malty tasty. Out of the October beers I have tried I so far feel this is the best,get 6 pack you'll be happy you did.

This was not what I expected and was pleasantly surprised at the smoothness and flavor. Definitely a new seasonal favorite!!

Aroma: Moderate melanoidin malt aroma with very faint lager yeast and hop spice notes.
Appearance: Sharply clear with a deep amber color, it pours to a firm tall off-white head that clings to the glass.
Flavor: Starts malty sweet and finishes appropriately dry. Moderate melanoidin malt flavor with a touch of toastiness. There is some lingering coarseness in the finish that is inappropriate, perhaps from the cluster hops.
Mouthfeel: The body is moderate but offset by the dry finish, if you don’t like heavier bodied beer, this one should please you because the finish is dry without cloying. Carbonation is medium.
Overall Impression: A very good Oktoberfest that could benefit from the omission of caramel malt and cluster hops.
Comments: Oktoberfest/Marzen is one of my favorite styles of beer and I’d be happy to drink this Leinie any day.
