This beer is not okay with me. I like a sweet beer, but this is over the top sweet for me. I really felt like i was drinking a bud lager with a couple of tablespoons of honey stirred in. I have to place the beer on the low. I hope to try a better beer from old Jacob soon. So stayed tune.

The guys on my hockey team really like the Leinenkugels beers. So they recently brought the Honey Weiss to our recent game. The Leinie's Honey Weiss was very thin, weak aroma, flavor and mouthfeel. There is honey present and also a toasted wheat flavor. But you're really straining to get either - comes out mostly in the aftertaste. This beer's just about as thin as any light lager - has a bit of a bitter, corny taste to it as well. It's okay drinking on a hot day, I'm sure, but don't look for much dazzlement on your tongue.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a hint of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that left some lacing on the surface and a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of wheat and grainy malts in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of wheat along with hints of bready malts.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is easy to drink and has more flavors compared to other kristalweizens.

kind of looks and feels like a Budweiser defiantly has a little more flavor and the honey after taste is a pleasant surprise , there is nothing special as far as appearance really looks like a miller lite or bud , has a decent head but dissipates quickly leaving no lacing If this beer was a little cheaper I wouldn't mind throwing these down to get a good buzz on or maybe grab 9 for a game of golf but besides that these aren't as crafty as they may appear
