Just the other day, we ran a super positive review of Leinenkugel’s Big Eddy Russian Imperial Stout.
We were so excited at the quality that we decided to snatch up a six-pack of Leinie’s nut brown ale when we hit the grocery store yesterday.
Gadzooks, what an utter disappointment. This may be the worst nut brown ale we have ever tasted. It is thin, almost watery, and the malt flavors are very weak. The hops are hard to detect, and one’s left with little more than an unpleasant roasted flavor. We struggled to finish just one 12 ounce bottle.
Blech—that was $9 down the drain. Fat chance that we’ll drop any cash to try another Leinie brew. (Rating **)
