Leinenkugel's Creamy Dark

Leinenkugel's Brewing Company is from  Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.  They began brewing in 1867. Leinenkugel's has been owned by Miller for some time now. This is their 4.9% ABV year round American dark lager.

The beer pours very dark brown, with dark ruby. There is an inch of tan head that fizzes down. The aroma is a light tones of dark roasted malt and char. The taste is dark roasted malt, toasty, nutty, almost a toasted coconut note. The finish is a touch sweet, but mostly dry, with light bitterness. The beer drinks very easy and light. In fact, it's body is a touch light for its flavors. I think their Bavarian-style dunkel is a much better dark lager than this.
