Pours a finger of head on a clear, golden colored body.
The aroma is lemon and honey. Simple and nice.
The taste is predominately honey. The profile is a little disjointed going from a mild bitter beginning to a mild honey sweet to a strong sweet finish.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
It's for the sweeter beer lovers.

The Honey Weiss is one of Leinenkugel's staples. Great beer.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Crystal clear golden body, slowly rising bubbles. White foamy head that recedes to a film, no lacing.

Aroma: Metallic, grains, corn husk?

Taste: Cereal grain body, barely a touch of honey, and a sour finish.

Mouthfeel: Carbonated, semi-dry.

Overall: This tasted exactly like an American adjunct lager, with only a trace of anything resembling honey.
