I fell in love with the Leinenkugel Brewery about a year and a half ago. My first love was their Sunset Wheat, followed by their Honey Weiss (reviews for these variants will almost certainly follow later). I stumbled upon the 1888 Bock yesterday, and was intrigued.
Leinie didn’t let me down. The 1888 is malty deliciousness with hits of hoppage. It’s a smooth 5.2% ABV and pours a beautiful copper color.
Summary: Easy to drink, good flavor. Killed the six-pack in one evening (although I had some help). This won’t be the last time Leinie 1888 Bock lands in my crisper.
