Not sure why I am reviewing this - other than that I have some in my fridge from the recent visit of a friend who likes to play mindless drinking games and there are only five other reviews - so what the hell. Color is a clear, pale yellow, some foamy head but no staying power. Honestly, it smells like crap. Most macro lagers, light or otherwise do, but still I hate the smell of macro lager. Taste is pretty decent, actually; crisp and clean, light bodied, nothing terribly offensive. $10 a case - can't beat that.

Yes, for $10 a case of bottles and the puzzles on the bottom of the caps. It's a fun beer to drink.
Taste is better than the big brews and close to other PA brewery beers. Good when company is coming over and your serving food.
All in all hard to pass up when you stop into the distributor.
It's not the best beer out there, but what do you want for, did I say $10?

As far as light beers go, Lionshead Light offers great value. It's got more flavor than many others with a nice grainy maltiness. It pours an attractive golden body with a nice white head that holds pretty well and leaves some minor lace at the outset of the glass. The aroma is generic "beer", but that's to be expected. It's light bodied and crisp; and nicely balanced with a firm, underlying bitterness and some mild background hops. It's far from the best beer that the Lion makes, but it's nicely done and the price cannot be beat!

Lionshead has a light offering? I just had to buy a case and see what is up

Appearance: Pale straw yellow...lots of carbonation.

Taste: Crisp as all get out...some roasted veggies and cereal malts are in there....finishes with light hop aftertaste. Typical light beer. Tastes like Coors Light...but alil better

Mouthfeel: Crisp and carbonated

Drinkability: Primetime session beer
