Leinenkugel's Red

Leinenkugel Brewing Co

USA

Updated review: This had a distinct caramel taste, like Killian's, but not as strong. A pretty easy drinking beer, but a warning: Drink only if you know you are in a distribution region, or you may be drinking an old beer that didn't sell well....my mistake the first time I tried it. There was a slight bite to it, not quite bitter, more like a sour bite. Probably the breakdown of the sugar in it. I would recommend this, but try to drink close to the source (Wisconsin). Original Review: This has a color slightly lighter than Killian's, but not as strong or sweet tasting. Still, a halfway decent lager. It doesn't have that flat taste that the big brewers have, but it doesn't have the kick that most craft beers have. Comparable to Heineken in taste.
