I was somewhat optimistic to try this but once again am let down by a Leinie offering (not counting Big Eddy). I actually thought Canoe Paddler was alright but this one is not something I would recommend.
Lacks any real Helles like maltiness, breadiness, etc....maybe you could push it into a Euro Lager category....
Hops? Was hoping for a big impression...nothing of the sort....maybe a little of lemony hoppiness shines through at times but not a strong hop presence.
So what do we have here....a decent beer....drinkable when compared to Macro Lagers but nothing to get excited about. It sounded promising. It is just OK.
Scores are for the category not as a beer. It's not horrible or anything but when put in the Helles Lager category...sorry it does not measure close to average.
Serving type: bottle
