look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A- pours a clear & light straw colored, big fizzy white head reduces to a small layer of foam that retains after the pour

S- faint toasted graininess with a metallic aroma, some muted banana and pear, otherwise rather adjunct-like

T- not much there at all. There are some traces of fruity pear notes, a clean and crisp malty backbone, a light citrus linger on the finish. Didn't really pick up any of the honey

M- light watery body with medium carbonation, slightly foamy mouthfeel with a slick, dry and crisp finish

O- filtering a Hefe seems to also filter out any flavor as well. This seems like it would be more fitting in a summer variety pack, it's easy to drink on a hot day but doesn't really fit in to a fall pack

So I've seen and heard about this beer quite often. I finally tried it and I really wanted to like it. However, this was just a deplorable attempt by Leinenkugal. The appearance is ok with not much of a head and no real lacing but the color may lead you to believe the are some layers of flavor in the glass. The scent is an overwhelming aroma of corn and every other type of cheap filler you can think. Call the smell rancid, skunky or just flat out cheap...it wasn't pleasant. The taste is so disappointing. I can't say it's too horrible as you can drink it...if your Nicholas Cage in "Leaving Las Vegas" and need a "fix" but the corn and grassiness hits you right of the bat and you then quickly get some nasty honey flavor. In my opinion there is balance here and it's all bad! The mouth-feel reminds me of tap beer from rusty pipes in a dive bar. Avoid this one! It's too bad , some of Leinenkugal's stuff isn't bad, but they crashed and burned on this one.
