UPDATED: DEC 30, 2011 Had on tap near Chicago. I questioned if this was a wheat when the bartender gave it to me, tasted like a Bud. Several others around me also questioned if it was a Wheat or a Bud/Miller. It was clear in appearance. No aroma and no flavor. The only person who disagreed was the one who wanted a lemon wedge in his beer. Which at that point, if you are drinking a Bud, who wouldnt.
Re-rate: tried again, the first time was not a mistake, I could not tell the difference between this and a macro-lite.

This beer smell"s like a regular domestic beer, Bud for example. It doesn"t taste much better either. I think that I will pour it out in a minute. You can"t hardly even taste the honey in it. Oh well.

Not bad. It, like all Leinies, has a metallic taste to it. For being a honey lager you can't taste the honey.

Lots of fast rising bubbles. some big, some small. does this scream FAKE??? Nice thick, tight white head. Smells like corn with hints of hops and maybe some barley. Pleasant nonetheless. Watery and thin though, not a true wheat man

Much better than orginal Leinenkugels. Not very distinct otherwise.

Good taste but like all Leine’s tastes much better out of the tap.

For once, an accurate commercial description. It’s light alright... light in color, light on flavour, light on honey. It is crisp, but the lack of much honey flavour renders it indistinguishable from any other wheat beer. Better than many of its type, but still mediocre.

It is a good beer to have a conversation over. Not in your face with flavor but has enough to know it is there.

A very good beer, gold in colour. I might be a fan because I like honey beers, so you’ll have to try it for yourself...

Light malt/grain nose. Small, fizzy, white head; fully diminishing. Clear gold in color. Hint of honey in the taste; lightly sweet. Thin and unspectacular. Made to be mixed with something else.
