2.89/5  rDev +1%
look: 2.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Got a 12 pack of this at Weis for $7. Was a little put off by the words "DELUXE PILSNER BEER" at first, because this is definitely an AAL and not a Pilsner. Sorta like Miller Lite, this just seems like a strange marketing tactic to me. Cold 12 oz. can poured into a pilsner glass.

L: Similar to Coors Light. Amber color, small fizzy white head that quickly recedes. Minimal carbonation, but more than other light AAL's.

S: Grains, sweet boiled corn, some soap. A slight whiff of grassy hops.

T: Very complex for the price tag and style. About as much flavor as local competitor Yuengling Light, but at almost half the price. Same soapy grains up front as in the smell, but balanced out by sweet malts and a hint of the most mild hop bitterness.

F: A little thick and syrupy for a beer of this style. At 120 calories, it's a fairly heavy "light" beer. Still, the carbonation makes it a little more refreshing. Certainly the kind of beer you could drink a lot of in a social setting.

Overall, judged within the style and price point, this is a fantastic light beer. There is no reason to buy any other light beer in my area, as none anywhere near the price point have the flavor this does. It still does not depose Genny Cream as my personal "King of the Cheap Beers", but it has become my go-to light beer.

When trying this beer I poured from a cold bottle into a chilled glass. Lion Head Light is an under appreciated beer coming in at roughly $13 per case.

You get a light amber color which is crystal clear and typical of light Ales. The aroma reminds you of movie theater popcorn, which can be good or bad, depends on what you like.

Coming in at 3.9% ABV, this is a respectable number, considering the price. Taste is quite powerful for a "light" ale and can be quite pleasing to your pallet. Although the only taste you get is of hops and that "hint" of popcorn, this beer does not suffer from the watered down effect that most light beers fall under

Overall I like this beer alot and I appreciate what it does for the price

And as an added bonus if the games you are playing suck you can always solve the riddles provided on the bottle cap.
