This is pretty watery and bland...I got this for a good deal and decided to give it a try......I would not buy it again. Some of Leiny's stuff is good.....not this one.

12 oz bottle. Weak malt aroma. Pours a light amber hue, small head. Very tame amber. Very little malt presence. Sour aftertaste. Boring.

Pretty looking amber, ah amber so pretty, almost all of them. Both of mine. Lots of clarity, looks professionally centrifuged and shit. Aroma was sweet, oktoberfest style malts.

Taste ventures a little down the red road more than amber in an ideal beer world, but its got some lively carbonation to help overcome that. Decent for those who like a mild toasting of their caramel malts.
