A 100 percent malted lager, “Leinie’s Classic” features Leinenkugel’s own unique blend of two-row and six-row malts and four varieties of hops. A blend of Pale, Caramel, and Munich malts offer a complex flavor, with four different hops (Cluster, Cascade, Mt. Hood, and Hallertau) to balance the malts. Acknowledging their German heritage, Leinenkugel’s brewed Classic Amber in Reinheitsgebot tradition, where the only ingredients permitted are malts, water, hops, and yeast.

12 oz. Clear, orange-amber with a quarter-inch of lasting foam. Aroma of rubber, grass and light honey. Flavor is unfortunately the same on the front, but is somewhat redeemed by some light toasted nut on the finish. Light-medium body is dryish and tingly.

Pours a lovely golden copper with an off-white head that dies immediately! I had this on tap at the Olive Pit in the Walkers Point section of east-side Milwaukee. Metallic nose with "punch in the face" corn water. Funny soup bullion taste. The other posters here must have been drunker than me when they tasted this! 1.5 is a freaking gift, and I wouldn’t pay the $8 a six pack I’ve seen this priced at in the local stores! I’m damned sick of brewers passing crap like this off as if it’s some sort of micro-brew messiah juice. Enough, already!

bottle, light golden brown with good 1/4" foam, aromas are sour, nutty and caramels, flavors of copper penny, hoppy bite and some malt, finish is astringent

This pours a clear pale amber color with a big white head. I don’t care too awful much for the aroma a little skunky, and a little grainy with some aromatic hops in the background. This has a nice pronounced biscuit like flavor and is largely dry. The hops are actually fairly strong for this style but something seems a bit off in the mix. Either way it reminds me of the Leinenkugels of days past and in general it’s pretty nice.

Transparent golden, copper color with a thin off white head. Faint hoppy aroma with a hint of caramel. Light malty body with a mix of hops and a moderately dry finish.

Nice spicy smell. Pours golden with nice head. It’s flavorful, but artificial. The amber stays on my tounge well. Good deal.

Classic amber eh? Well, it had a slight skunk odor, with other....elements. I really think that there is just too much going on here as far as taste and aroma to make sense of it all. Tasted of...meatballs? I suppose I should say it would pair well with spaghetti!

heemer77 (5288) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Deep, true amber body with an off white head. The aroma was old toffee and iced tea. There was a hint of pears. The taste was light iced tea and green wood. There was also a little hint of tobacco. Overall, this is certainly decent and malty, but not something worth spending extra money. This is nearly a Marzen in character.

12 oz bottle. Pour a rich golden amber with a thick soft head. Smells of grains and rye. Tastes of bread, grainy, malty, faint roasty notes. Very light carmel flavor. Nicely bittered by the blend of hops. A little thin and light on the overall flavor and body, but a good crisp refreshing beer.

I heard this was pretty good, for me, it was a let down. Aroma is of caramel, toasted malt and light floral hop spice. Taste is caramel, toasted cereal, light hops. Finish is try and to me, acrid. The graininess makes it all lopsided. This was a drainpour for me.
