When I drink this beer, I usually have it on tap but, I've had it in bottles and cans plenty of times.

Appearance is a light, straw color with a white head.

Smells hoppy and grainy.

Tastes I get are hops, adjuncts and citrus at the end.

Light mouthfeel with medium carbonation.

Leinie's is a very good Northwoods brew. The brewery isn't that far from where I live either.
