I have a confession. Sometimes after work I like to sit around in sweat pants and listen to sleaze rock. Sometimes I even reach down through my elasticized waist-band and scratch my non-existent balls (not really, that’s gross). I also like to drink beer while doing this. Tonight, I am doing this with AC/DC and Leinenkugel’s Honey Weiss.
This beer is a pale lager, flavored with…guess what…honey. I had some at a tasting this weekend and really liked my less-than-one ounce sample. Unfortunately, my like didn’t carry over into a 12 oz bottle. It’s really clear yellow, and it’s completely headless. It has a very light and slightly bitter, almost skunked, flavor, I can picture it being a beer that people who aren’t “into” fancy beer liking, because it’s essentially a light American lager with a definite honey aftertaste. I suppose I could see my mom drinking it, or maybe myself on a hot day when it’s the only cold beer left in the fridge after a spending a day doing yard work. Oh, who am I kidding. I wouldn’t be doing yard work. I’d be lounging around being a total waste of human space somewhere.
Conclusion: Not bad, not memorable, definitely mediocre.
