Leinenkugel's Limited Golden Lager

The Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company is from Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.  It is now part of Miller.  This is a revival of what used to be their Northwoods Lager.

The beer pours a dark, honey golden in color with a quarter-inch head of white foam that dissipates fairly rapidly.  The aroma is malty grain and zesty, floral hops with a touch of lager funk.  The taste is slightly sweet at the beginning, fresh grain, and an aromatic and bitter, dry hop finish.  This reminds me of a more substantial and malty Grain Belt with a strong hop finish.  It is very good.
