Ahhhh lions head. What can I say. This might be the best basement bargain beer in a bottle. Oh yes, buy the bottle or give it a " drain poor". In the bottle it is an outstanding cheap drinker, but they must buy the left over cans from steel city, the taste coming out of a can is of licking the aluminum shavings off the brewery floor. And stay away from the light version too, the regular pilsner is light enough. So if you need a cheap bottle that goes down easy and will please most on a hot day. Drink up my friend... Bonus the mind teasers under the caps can keep a group of local drunks amused for hours of cheap fun!

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deeper straw, light amber color with a billowy two finger pure white head. The head fades rather slowly over time, leaving only a very nice level of supper foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is lighter overall, but consists of a slightly bready and corny smell. There is a bit of a caramel aroma mixed with some notes of a light fruit and musty aroma as well.

Taste – The taste begins with flavors of some caramel sweetness, a bit of breadiness mixed with a decent amount of a corny sweet flavor. As the flavor advances some lighter fruit flavors come to the tongue along with a bit of a musty grain and papery taste as well. There flavors take the taste to its end, leaving a somewhat musty grain and sweeter taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly lighter side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The feel is quite appropriate for the style and makes for an easy drinking brew.

Overall – Nothing fantastic, but for the price and as a session beer it is a good go to on any occasion when drinking is more a background activity.
