A moderate pour produces a 1.5 inch frothy head that quickly dissipates to a wispy island of lace. The beer is an extra pale golden with moderate carbonation.

Just a whiff of honey in the aroma, otherwise light malt aromas and slight floral hops. The honey is more apparent in the flavor, and builds as the beer progresses. The honey has an unfermented quality, but is not overdone (i.e., mead-like characters are mostly absent). Pretty clean, semi-dry finish, with just a touch of pungency from the honey.

A welcome subtle use of honey in a beer, and one of Leinie's better brews. Purchased as part of a variety 12 pack.

I really started enjoying these after a few, but all and all, this is just a very decent, light bodied beer and not much more. It's not bad and it's not great, but it is very drinkable. It's better than a lot of mainstream beers for sure.
