Thin bodied and little flavor beyomd the honey. Leine's continues to prove to me that they cannot make a beer that wows me.

Sampling right now on 5/8/15 but had this several times in the past and even on tap but never did a review on it. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a "LEINENKUGEL'S" pint glass.

Brew pours a golden-yellow in color with about a half-finger foamy white head. Spotty lacing is seen when sipped. The aroma is of wheat, grains with a touch of honey. Very nice. Pretty much is said for the taste and isn't over done at all with the honey. Very smooth with a bit 'o honey taste for the finish. Always enjoyed this one. Lighter to medium-bodied with perfect carbonation. Tasty brew!
