Beer Review: Leinenkugel's Original
The Original has a beautiful golden color. It isn't clouded or muddled at all. There isn't much of an aroma. It's not fragrant like the Honey or the Berry. That sort of lulls your tastebuds into a slumber. The first taste is surprisingly good. It's crisp when it hits your tongue; there's a mild bite to it. But it goes down smooth and easy. The aftertaste is not so strong that it lingers annoyingly. Each drink is very refreshing.
Leinenkugel's Original is a good cornerstone beer. It's the kind of beer that you would keep stocked in the fridge for casual drinking. I doubt that I would pick this beer as something to take to a party. I would prefer something a little more exotic with a little more personality. But different situations call for different beers. The Original is the beer that you have while you are grilling in your backyard on a Saturday night or with dinner whenever.
I plan on getting my hands on that new Leine's Apple Spice in the very near future. A beer that can be served hot or cold? Sign me up.
