Leinenkugel's Original has a thick, stark-white head, and a clear, bubbly, yellow-golden appearance, with almost no lacing. The aroma is of mild, pungent, sweet and sour grain. Taste is of sweet grain, a touch of hops (which comes out more in the undertaste), and a bit of grass. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Leinenkugel's finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and very dry. If there was ever a stereotypical American-style lager, this is it. It's worth checking out, if you ever see it, which you probably won't.
