Pours clear and gold with an average to light head. Nice beer lager aroma. Full body. Beer. What more can I say? If you think you will like it, you probably will.

draft - Pours clear deep gold with a small white head. It smells of bready, grainy malt. The flavor is of sweet, grainy malt and some very mild hops. This brew is basically fizzy yellow beer. Itís better than most pale lagers, Iíll give it that, but itís still unimpressive.

I am drinking this beer as advertised "Leinenkugelís Limited, Golden Lager". Supposedly itís a 140 year old traditional beer, but it debuted in 1986. I was born in 1986, and I am certainly not 140 years old. Great old school logo on the label and on the bottle cap. Dear God, it tastes like crap though.

Bottle. Poured a clear yellow color with a smaller white head. Aroma was citrus, corn and malts. Flavor was grass, citrus, orange and metallic flavors. Nothing really to this beer. Thin and watery body. Below average beer.

12 oz twist-off bottle. It says MAY0211, not sure what that means. It pours an orangeish gold with a foamy white head that doesnít leave much lacing. It smells pretty basic. It has paper, table sugar, and grain in the aroma. Iím not getting any hops, it is sweet and grainy. The flavor is typical American pale lager. It is sweet adn buttery biscuity with a tiny kiss of hops. It isnít a great lager at all, but not bad for the style. Leinenkugel is getting there, but I think they just use way too many cheap ingredients and still produce too large of batches, especially on these small run ones.

TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2011
Bottle from my trip to Wisconsin. Pours a golden pour, some tinges of orange, dulled, with a darker edge, sunset almost. Largely clear, well carbonated with a moderate offwhite head that dies to a small layer, laces small. Aromas are sweet malts, bread and crackers, touches of dough, faint honey, and some cornbread. No real hopping, largely crisp yet malty, simple. Initial is light bodied, prickly carbonation with bready malts, crackers, corn, and Cream Crackers. Thin, towards the back a twang of bitterness, some floral and metallic edge to them, pleasant in some sips and a bit off putting in others. Some corn, toast, and those cream crackers from Britain I grew up with. A simple lager, clean and crisp, with a decent bitterness on the finish and a touch of flavor. Itís not bad, but itís easily forgettable and doesnít hold a candle to any craft lagers Iíve had locally lately. Meh.

On tap, pours a clear light golden with a nice thick head, aroma was of grain, hops and grass, the flavor is pretty smooth and enjoyable but was nothing to really remember, it does have a slight hop touch in the finish, meh.

Strykzone (5004) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Clear golden with a light copper hue. Small off white head that doesnít last long. A creamy and prickly feel is nice. This is somewhat better than the typical pale lager. Light wood, hops that are more pronounced than most others, a bit of grass. Nothing great here but pretty decent for the style.

12 oz bottle from Tournament. Bright golden colored pour with a white head. Nothing bad but nothing special either. Typical American pale lager, decently drinkable.

Bottle. Overtones of a pleasant grainy aroma turn into a deep orange pour with plenty of foam. An easy drinking lager, itís hard to be disappointed with the complete lack of skunky flavor that is usually present in a beer of this style. Clean tasting, with just a hint of a hop finish, itís the perfect beer to make me wish I was drinking one on a hot summer day.
