Bottle. Poured dark clear amber with a large off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate balanced malt and hop aroma. Medium body. Medium balanced flavor with a bittersweet finish of moderate duration. crossovert (13747) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2011
12 oz twist-off bottle. It says MAY0211, not sure what that means.
It pours an orangeish gold with a foamy white head that doesn’t leave much lacing.
It smells pretty basic. It has paper, table sugar, and grain in the aroma. I’m not getting any hops, it is sweet and grainy.
The flavor is typical American pale lager. It is sweet adn buttery biscuity with a tiny kiss of hops. It isn’t a great lager at all, but not bad for the style.
Leinenkugel is getting there, but I think they just use way too many cheap ingredients and still produce too large of batches, especially on these small run ones.

Thanks to Darkover for the trade. Pours a dark golden color with decent carbonation and a medium thin white head. Thin rings of lacing. Aroma of grassy hops and earthy malt. Light-bodied and clean on the tongue with a sweet malt and honey flavor at first, then more grassy hops shortly after. The finish is clean and lightly sweet but with a hint of hops in the aftertaste. Nothing stands out either good or bad about this Lager, it’s pretty much average all around. Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 16, 2000

(12oz bottle, courtesy of Fratto) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of grass, florals, and citrus. Flavor of grain, grass, honey, and cereal.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear golden amber color with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet, grainy with hints of corn. The flavor is more sweet grainy, corn, hints of grassy bitterness. Probably better than most macro pale lagers, but that isn’t saying much. onceblind (10330) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2016
Beautiful clear deep golden with a bubbly head that dissipates a little fast. Semisweet crackery doughy lager malt aromas. Similar flavor that’s impeccably clean and bright. Light semisweet doughy cracker german malt that’s got a wee hint of german noble hop--just enough to balance. Otherwise a very clean and crisp light lager. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Pours clear orange/yellow from bottle, labeled Limited Golden Lager, thin to no white head. Aroma has notes of some grass, touch of biscuit and hay. Taste is clean but has notes of sweet malt, touch of bitter grass, finishing slightly dry, slightly bitter. As far as pale lagers go, I could drink a lot of this one, but there really isn’t much to it. drowland (8955) - Georgia, USA - AUG 16, 2009
I’m honestly not even sure when or where I tried this, but I have the numbers down in my records, so here goes! PorterPounder (8231) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2004
Had a bottle of this at a Twins game. Solid quaffable lager. Light golden appearance, stalwart pillowy white head. Slight sweet twangy aroma, perhaps a bit of honey in there. Same honey sweetness carries over to the flavor. Slight hoppy notes in the back end. Mouthfeel has a bit of a likable stickiness to it that says this would be a decent everyday beer if it was sold near where I live. Overall, a very likable lager.
