Poured from a can into a Three Floyd's pint glass (sorry 3Fs)
A - Murky pale yellowy-orange. Kind of like over-blended watered-down orange juice. Doesn't look very appetizing.
S - Smells like a cross between a wit and a czech pils. Lemony aroma that fades into grain. Not too much orange on the nose, more lemon than orange.
T - Ah, there's the oranges. And grains. Ricey and wheaty grains, but not as pungent or putrid as those found in any of the major adjunct lagers. Starts as orange juice with much less sweetness, and fades to the graininess stated above. You can almost say it tastes like a cross between an Americanized bastard of a wit and a euro pils, with added OJ. Not bad, but you have to take it for what it is.
M - The way I like my fruit beers. Effervescent and light. Adds a crispness. Could be a little less syrupy, but nothing too big.
O - This beer was surprisingly OK. Not bad, not great, just an "as expected" beer from Leinenkugel. I feel like a lot of people rip on this company cause it's a macro, and a lot of people praise it cause they have no palate for beer. If it were cheaper, I'd buy it. Until then, I'll stick to my cheap-ass Steigl Radler for a light fruity brew. If you like grapefruit and fruity beer, check it out, only 89 cents for a pint can at my local craft store!
