By and large an unimpressive beer. I know a lot of people who drink this as their beer because it's affordable, but you get what you pay for. It's drinkable, but only as a last resort. The flavor is very bland, with little distinction, but it isn't distinguished or otherwise worthy of note.

Poured a light yellow with a very thin head
Smell was almost nonexistent
The taste was VERY mild with just a hint of sweetness, this is a thin brew that you have to TRY to taste.
All in all it was worth the money and isn't a bad beer just not memorable. I would buy it again for just drinking while I puttering around the house.

Paid $4.99 for a 6 pack

Leinie’s Honey Weiss is what it is, an average American wheat beer. Everything about it is pretty unimpressive. The main thing I can say to its credit is that the honey aspect is nicely done. It’s not at all a cloying, sugary honey flavor. The beer is very light gold/yellow in appearance, without much head to speak of. It’s fairly smooth tasting, with grass being the prevalent flavor on my tongue. A good yard beer.
