12 oz. bottle, purchased as part of the Leinenkugel's Autumn sampler pack. Bottle says to enjoy by January 07, 2013 so I am only a couple days late on this one.
A - Non-aggressive pour into a Boulevard tulip glass yields the tiniest half finger of foamy head that recedes into nothing within seconds. Extremely pale, clear, yellow straw color. Steady stream of bubbles rushing to the top. Looks very similar to a Miller Lite or something similar.
S - Pale boring malt smell with a tiny whiff of bubblegum. Maybe the vaguest hint of honey in there somewhere, but otherwise it is a pretty dull sniffing experience. Corn.
T - Tastes like a more tame boring watered down version of the Leinenkugel's Oktoberfest without the hint of spice. Bubblegum malts seem to be dominant again here with a faint hint of honey tickling the tongue. Lots of carbonation. No real flavor to speak of. Corn.
M - Smooth clean watery mouthfeel again. I am really digging for the honey, and it is there, but it isn't very pronounced. Again, carbonated, but it isn't so bad that it completely ruins the beer like some other lackluster brews I've had in the past.
Overall, not a great beer, and probably the lamest beer in Leinenkugel's autumn sampler. I have had home-brewed beers that were way too heavy on the honey, but this beer could definitely use some more. With a low 4.9% abv, use this beer to introduce your friends to something other than Miller Lite or Bud Light.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.
Look: Crystal clear golden body, slowly rising bubbles. White foamy head that recedes to a film, no lacing.
Aroma: Metallic, grains, corn husk?
Taste: Cereal grain body, barely a touch of honey, and a sour finish.
Mouthfeel: Carbonated, semi-dry.
Overall: This tasted exactly like an American adjunct lager, with only a trace of anything resembling honey.
