Picked up a nice fresh case of Lionshead bottles in the new packaging ($12.99 a case- although I understand the price is increasing - it represents a solid value) - "The Best Head in Town" on the neck label. It is the beer they are drinking at the bar on the TV show "The Office" --- plus the REBUS puzzles under the labels
All that said it is a decent -drinkable beer - same or better than the macro offerings from their bigger brethren - nothing offensive in the taste or smell - basic beer that is about to break out in new markets - a favorite of the college age kids.
Not a sipper- drink cold to wash down your hot dogs or brats - wings etc with friends watching the football games - no need to pay the extra bucks for the BMC brews - especially when you can get it fresh close to home
Although listed as a german pilsner above - the brewery website - I believe says American Lager style pilsner -- they do use corn as an adjunct in the brewing process.

I went looking for some cheap beer because money is tight this weekend. I found this, 12.99 for a case of loose cans. At first I thought it was a typo, but it was right. It came out to 13.90 with tax. I saw this beer on an episode of "The Office", so I assumed it wasn't god-awful. and it isn't. It is close, though.
Appearance, I poured some in a glass, just to see for the review. Very light.
Smell- almost non-existent. All I smell is aluminum from the can and a faint Budweiser smell.
taste- Again, almost non-existent. Not bad, not good. Reminiscent of Bud Light or Coors Light, and this isn't a Light Beer. I can't imagine how watery the Light version is.
Mouthfeel- Flat and dull. Swallow fast and keep it cold. Definitely could use more carbonation.
Overall-You get what you pay for. 14 bucks a case, I was expecting worse. If you're in a pinch this is a lot better than Natural Ice, Old Milwaukee, or any of the other cheap and awful beers. If you can afford better, though, then get better.

Just the opposite of most people on this one. Tried it out of a bottle on several occasions, and every time tasted very flat. Bought a 6 Pack of cans for $3.99, and well I think it actually tasted a lot better. For the record: I DO NOT LIKE DRINKING BEER OUT OF A CAN! But this one on the other hand, wasn't too damn bad. The ultimate local budget beer in the PA, DE, NJ area, you really can't go wrong on this one.
