This is just an average light beer, typical soapy white head, not much lacing on the glass. Flavor is bland and watery.I would not try this again.

Taste and aroma is faint malts, rather watery and a beery finish. Only a very slight off note in it, otherwise it was as expected in not being very much to it.

As far as beers go, I must admit that I do not care for the majority of products in the "Light" category. Some, such as Bud Light, are completely undrinkable to me. I would like to further qualify my comments by saying that I do enjoy a good "working man's brew" and love finding the hidden gems in the line-ups of legacy brewers such as Leinenkugel's. This is one of those gems.

Leinenkugel's Light has a darker color than one might imagine, darker than many of the "non light" American adjunct lagers, and a good taste to go along with it. I may be in the minority here, but this is the lone example of where I prefer the "Light" derivative over the full-bodied version (in this case Leinenkugel's original). Leine's Light is simply just a refreshing brew, perfect after a long day out in the sun. We always seem to have a case on hand during the summer.

It's rumored that Leine's Light has been discontinued. It has come close to this fate on a number of occasions and I simply hope that does not happen. It would be disappointing to part ways with the one "Light" product that stands out as being simply a fine beer!
