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.
