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.

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

hotstuff (3954) - 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.

Leighton (9855) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2013
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.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2013
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)

jackl (3862) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 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.

Theydon_Bois (7002) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2013
Can on the Black Country Train Tasting Part I, 06/07/13, thanks to James (Jredmond) for this top pale lager want! Can badged as "Lionshead Deluxe Pilsener". Clear pale blonde with a thin white head. Nose is pale malts, cereals, sugar, light citrus. Taste comprises lightly toasted malt, sugars, bread dough, light citrus. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, crisp finish. Ok as the pale lager world goes - it won the showdown for me over Leightons beloved Utica Club! Just !

Black Country Beano. Outbound train tasting! Light haze on this pale gold beer. Fresh palate, softish. Fine carbonation. Clean malt that develops thin cream. Light dried fruits. Light dry finish. Inoffensive.

RichTheVillan (2125) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2013
First train beer of RB Black Country Beer Bus Bash; pale pour white head, malty aroma very much your generic pale lager, I could get verbose about this but I’d prefer to hear about the Virgin Train toilets.
