It’s harder and harder to find mixed-packs of beer that have good selections. Awhile back, I found a mixed pack of Leinenkugel’s and grabbed it. Let’s see how it was.
Style: American Pale Lager
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Leinenkugel’s® is the nation’s 7th oldest operating brewery. It has a rich history, which began when brewer Matthias Leinenkugel brought his family over to the United States from Germany in the 1840s. The family continued to travel west and finally settled in Sauk City, Wisconsin. Matthias taught his sons the art of brewing. It was his third son, Jacob, who traveled north to Chippewa Falls. Jacob felt sure the thirsty lumberjacks and lumber-booming economy of Northwestern Wisconsin made Chippewa the ideal location to begin his own brewery. In 1867 Jacob began brewing. For almost 150 years and six generations, the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company® has survived and continues to prosper through commitment to their founder’s ideals of brewing and operating with excellence. Having survived Prohibition, the economic demands of World War II, and fierce competition, Leinenkugel’s® has remained a prominent brewer in the Upper Midwest. In addition to our year-round offerings such as Leinenkugel’s® Honey Weiss, Berry Weiss, Sunset Wheat, and Original, we also brew seasonal beers such as Oktoberfest and Summer Shandy.”
Random: This beer was first brewed in 1986.
The beer poured with a one finger, slightly off white head. It was thick and went away slowly, leaving a decent amount of lacing on the glass. The body was clear and an amber color with light carbonation visible. The nose was muted with some grain and corn and honey, without much else. The flavor started with some caramel sweetness and milled grain. There was some corn as well, but not much else. The body was light and the carbonation was present and plentiful. The finish was quick with caramel sweetness. This beer was simple and didn’t have much flavor. I wasn’t a big fan of this beer, but I could see this as a good beer to give someone who is a Bud/Miller/Coors fan.
