As far as beers go, I must admit that I do not care for the majority of products in the "Light" category. Some, such as Bud Light, are completely undrinkable to me. I would like to further qualify my comments by saying that I do enjoy a good "working man's brew" and love finding the hidden gems in the line-ups of legacy brewers such as Leinenkugel's. This is one of those gems.
Leinenkugel's Light has a darker color than one might imagine, darker than many of the "non light" American adjunct lagers, and a good taste to go along with it. I may be in the minority here, but this is the lone example of where I prefer the "Light" derivative over the full-bodied version (in this case Leinenkugel's original). Leine's Light is simply just a refreshing brew, perfect after a long day out in the sun. We always seem to have a case on hand during the summer.
It's rumored that Leine's Light has been discontinued. It has come close to this fate on a number of occasions and I simply hope that does not happen. It would be disappointing to part ways with the one "Light" product that stands out as being simply a fine beer!

This pours a pale yellow hue with a foamy white head. The aroma is light with grain and yeast. The taste is thin, watery, and grainy. For being a “light beer” at least this has some decent flavor to it. Drink very easy leaving a lingering grain taste. Considering the price, this would be a better option than Miller Lite or Bud Light.
