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.

I poured myself a Leinenkugel Honey Weiss in a .3L weiss glass. The beer seemed to seperate itself for the glass itself. Mind you I carefully clean my glasses according to accepted beer standards. The pizza glass phenomenon is not for me. So I'm not sure why there was no beer clinging to the glass.

A- Not too bad; golden in color that looks okay under artificial lighting.

S- Not so good; I couldn't differentiate anything relating to Honey or wheat for that matter.

T- Yikes. What happened to the taste? There is nothing that resembles what we call 'flavor' in this beer.

M- Watery- that's being kind too.

O- Huge dissapointment. I expected something respectable. I know I have high standards but even an average beer drinker deserves better then this.
