2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
I have not had this beer in 30 years. So as I enter a tavern in Colonial Williamsburg on vacation I was shocked to see it, let alone learn it is the number one seller. It was a local PA coal miner beer now a celebrity. Cool to see it and ok to drink. I told friends back home about the story and got headshakes and puzzled looks. Not even readily available in their own backyard. I guess it’s fun to be somebody else when your out of town.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Wine Seller in Williamburg, VA. Poured hazy gold with white head. Nose was biscuity pale malt, mild hops and fruit. Tasted pretty solid on the palate, with creamy pale malt, backup hops, and some lactic frutiness at mid-palate. This one is decent.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Honey-like aroma and thirst quenching wet finish with sweet corn like flavor with flowery backdrop. Overall pretty watery but matches the style well and is helps when humidity is 100% and its a heat wave outside. Don’t think I ever rated a beer so low and gave it so many kudos.

used to love the beer and have been trying to locate it here on r.b. bought the stuff by the case in the brown cans and it was good beer and really cheap. i can remember years ago @ $7 a case. smooth with a nice malt and hop presence i consider this brand to be a major factor in peaking my interest in beer because it was superior in taste and body to all the other mass produced beers that are pretty much tasteless. mildly fruity satisfying and when i find it, guess i’m most likely gonna rate less beer in the future.

Also had this in Colonial Williamsburg. The name is a real odd one for a Lion brew. A decent cream ale, which is not that great of a style. Pretty smooth with a decent amount of hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Bought a case with some good friends in N.Y. city and partied at a hotel along with a lot of SamAdams beers. Golden bit hazy colour with a nice average lasting sticky head. Malty and caramellic aroma and hops. Flavour is smooth and creamy, fruity hoppiness, caramel, good malts. Nice aftertaste! For a mass produced cream ale this brew is really tasty.

This is a good session beer especially at $12 for a case of 16oz returnables. There are some malt and a little hop flavor and the alcohol is not that well hidden.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Liebotschaner Cream Ale pours to a beautiful, bright,
pale golden color, with a bright and bubbly white head
that fades, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose on
this beer is pleasing, with light touches of pale
malt, some corn sweetness, and traces of grassy hop
aromatics. The palate on this beer is lean, but with
some delicate pale malt flavors, and undertones of
jammy fruit from that warm fermentation. The body on
this beer because it was lagered is very round and
smooth as it goes down. Liebotschaner Cream Ale
finishes with some more subtle pale malt, sweet corn,
and light fruity flavors, then ends with a slightly
sour and grassy edge.
This is an excellent, light, refreshing beer, great
for warm weather quaffing, and as a beer to drink if
you want to knock a few back. It only comes in at
about 4-4.5% abv, and makes a good session beer. You
could match this beer with a lot of different dishes,
but Cream Ale really is a good drinking beer. Its the
type of beer to have in the cooler when you go to the
beach or the park, or a beer to enjoy at a good,
unpretentious bar with a Cream Ale tap. Price on this
beer is right as well, going for as little as $3.50 a
six pack, and about $12-14 a case depending where you
pick it up. This beer is widely avaiable in PA, select
Mid-Atlantic markets, and even in New England.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow, some DMS notes in aroma, little head. Mouthfeel is watery and fizzy, like a selzter. Taste is vaguely "beery" like you would expect of a macro but with some very mild fruity and hoppy notes.
