To me it just came off wayyyy to sweet, which was not something I expected or really cared for. I thought there was lot of maple flavor in it, or maybe thats the hazelnut, but either way it was really a chore to finish the sixer my wife bought me. Normally I really like nut browns and until I read these posts, I had no idea Leine's were all lagers. That explains alot about some of the character that is missing in my opinion. I'm not sure how it got such good reviews, I'm glad I wasn't the only one who thought otherwise.
