Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark brown color with a small tan head on there. Nose has some strong caramel notes to it with just a bit of toasting to it. Taste is a bit sweet and nicely caramely. Pretty light and easy drink, though nothing terribly overwhelming.

12 oz.bottle dated April 2015.
Pours a dark reddish brown, excellent clarity, with a small light tan head. Head reduces quickly to a thin ring.
Smell: fine, rich, malty aroma with suggestions of dark bread and chocolate.
Taste: Milder that the aroma suggests. Slightly sweet.
Medium body with some bite rather low carbonation.
O - Not bad, but rather mild flavor for style.

Ok so i donít hate this. But i donít like it either. There is nothing here to get excited about. Mild and lack later is really the only thing i can say about this beer.

Meh, this beer is entirely forgettable. Really just some caramel lager-like malts. Hell, it basically tastes like a Marzen. Iím not a Leinenkugel hater either. Not horrible, just not good. It is a pretty beer though, a chestnut color with almost a purplish-brown look to it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottlr poured. Pours a dark amber with a big frothy head. Lotion like, soapy aroma. Flavor is more mild.and smooth, but still a bit on the soapy side. This beer was just okay for me. Not quite the enjoyable flavors that I love in beer. Still glad I tried it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear mahogany brown body with a small fizzy beige head. The nose is pretty nice, some sweet Munich and lightly nutty maltiness with a hint of chocolate and some light hops. The flavor is a bit less smooth and clean than I was hoping for, itís just a little husky and grainy. Some nice sweet malt notes and a hint of chocolate on the back end along with a light hop bitterness. Lighter bodied with fizzy carbonation and lingering malt. Decent effort, but not an excellent example of the style.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a cola-colored red-brown with a high, fine-grained, light tan head. Very mild nose has maple, roast pecan, and cola notes, but is marred by a slight oxidized element. There is smoke, molasses, maple, pecan, and iced tea on the tongue, but itís very light; this is a doppelbock in name only, with none of the substantial weight that German doppelbocks have. Finish is long and brown-sugar sweet. Mediocre.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks and smells somewhat proper. Very light body, somewhat sweet, way short on maltiness. Tastes like a cheap adjunct beer. Boo linenkugels.
