COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A college favorite, Lionshead carries the traditional lion symbol painted on the outside of The Brewery since the early days of brewing in Wilkes-Barre. It is a crisp, clean, easy drinking American lager-pilsner style beer made with the finest American malts, corn, and hops.

I’ve been living out in North East Pa, so I’ve been drinking quite a few of these. Drank from the bottle. Aroma of generic beer, a lot of carbonation. Not a bad alternative to the world of light beers. Plus I feel more like a Rasta when drinking it!

Pours a light yellow with heavy carbonation. Has a faint aroma of malt. Taste is watered down malt and light fruit taste. The kegs usually taste a little like a burnt cigarette to me.

Had to try one these "Cheap" lagers from the east, a favorite among the local college populace. Faint grain aroma and taste, bland palate and finish. Typical pale lager.

Decent drinking all night beer. Goes down smooth. Is really cheap. Nothing special, but has ancient hieroglyphics under the cap.

For a cheap beer its not to bad. Great for alcoholics on a budget and college kids. Look for the riddles under the bottle caps.

Can. Subdued beer/hops aroma, average carbonation. Very faint hop flavors. Innocuous, but also mostly flavorless. Would not drink again.

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2014
Rated on 4-03-2011 (Bottle) This beer has a small very, very fizzy white head that quickly dissipates, yellow transparent body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation observed, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is pale malt, grain and a suggestion of hops. The taste is pale malt, grainy and a dry finish. The mouthfeel is very lively and this beer is medium bodied. Like the Lionshead Light beer, this beer lacks character, boring flavor and not a beer I recommend nor is it on my list of beers to want again.

Bottle on the Black Country Train Tasting Part I. Pours perfectly clear yellow with a light, creamy white head. Simple stuff: sugary dough, light straw, mellow bitterness, cereal. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet dough and cereal on the finish. As pale lagers go, this is fine.

Draft at Heavens Pizza. Ugh ... lives up (or down) to all the bad stereotypes for American macro beers ... clear and pale yellow, no head, flat corny aroma and flavors. No redeeming qualities (but nothing technically wrong either). (#5198, 8/15/2013)

Bottle @ The Train Tasting, Pt I. Light golden pour with a small white head. The nose is honey, a bit of paper. Some white bread. Fairly neutral on the olfactory nerves. The taste is honeyed pear. Golden syrup. Sings of mild oxidization. Clean finish. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, inoffensive stuff. Not bad for the style.
