As Leinenkugels Limited. Clear apple cider with a thin creamy off-white head. Aroma is grassy and adjuncted with corn, sweet malt and some toasted malt. Taste of noble hops, sweet malt, apple and grassy hops. Easy drinking and in-line with pale lagers in terms of carbonation and the astringent finish.

thegreenrooster (4238) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Pour is a dark gold with a white head. Aroma is sweet and grainy. Flavor is some dry hay malts and nothing in the way of hops. Slightly more body and heft then a BMC and by slightly I mean very slightly.

Decent aroma but oxidized in flavor, this is decent but would be better if fresher.

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.

patrick767 (4038) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2011
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. Its better than most pale lagers, Ill give it that, but its still unimpressive.

I am drinking this beer as advertised "Leinenkugels Limited, Golden Lager". Supposedly its 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 doesnt leave much lacing. It smells pretty basic. It has paper, table sugar, and grain in the aroma. Im 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 isnt 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 (7130) - 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. Its not bad, but its easily forgettable and doesnt hold a candle to any craft lagers Ive had locally lately. Meh.
