A very fine offering from Leinie.

Aroma is good and invites a taste. Color is beer color, which sure beats any other color. Taste is good and enjoyed immensely. Cool, crisp and not all the tons of hops like most USA "craft" crap. Imagine that, a German style beer that tastes like beer. Thanks Leinie!!!!!

10/2016 - real bad news - they use GMO corn in their brew. Sorry, I cant go for that, regardless of the reason(s) they give. Corporations say GMO is "not bad". Sure, I believe them, remember how cigarette companies said cigarettes werent bad for us???

6/2017 - tried this again, good taste, but, the hops were much more present than ever before. not sure who the hops salesman is in the USA, but he is selling tons of hops to every brewer out there. thankfully, German brewers still brew beer and have not fallen for the "craftie" idea that every beer needs 150 lbs of hops in each bottle. Thank you Herr Brewmeister!!

A - Pours a very light golden with a one finger white head. Left no lacing.

S - Upon roughly twenty whiffs, I was not able to pick up a single thing.

T - Well let's see, there's...well, it pretty much follows the nose. This beer is blander than Rolling Rock.

M - Heavily bodied with moderate carbonation.

O - Overall, Extremely bland and lacking in all departments. I'e rather have a Bud Light. At least that has some flavor.

This beer is basically a light beer. It has nothing much to review. It doesn't really taste horrible, it just has no taste at all. There isn't a hint of maltiness, or hoppiness or even the grainy taste a good American lager has. It has no smell, mouthfeel is very thin, carbonation is barely detectable... I don't know what this beer is supposed to be, or why it was brewed.
