Light caramel, grain, apples and lemongrass. A musky aftertaste detracts from this one. Alcohol is well masked. More flavorful than your typical lager, but not as crisp.

12oz bottle, light golden orange in appearance. Scent of sour grains. Taste is sour apple, yeast and grain, a bit sweet. Alcohol pretty noticeable as well.

Bottle courtesy of Ken1. Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, sour fruit, yeasty and a little alcohol. Flavor is quite sweet and light bitter. Sweet finish with notes of alcohol. 160813

A sweet fruity aroma, and a sweet fruity flavor with a creamy warm alcoholic mouthfeel. Color is amber with a white head.

12 oz. can shared by DrSilverworm- thanks, Chris! Looks almost like champagne on the pour, a very pale yellow with big bubbles and a quick fizzy white head. Notes of pils and pale malts, sugar, straw, grape, and apple. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Meh.

Can shared at b3shine’s. Pours a darker gold with a thick white head of foam that dissipates quickly. Smells like skunk piss and white cake. Tastes better than it smells and is pretty sweet. This is alright, but I’ll pass in the future.

My bottle is labeled differently. There is a bigger lion head at the top and the label reads Lion Imperial Premium Malt Pilsner. The alcohol content is listed at 8.8%, not 8.0. This is a decent pilsner. It has a thin mouth with a smooth sweet malty flavor that is easy to swallow. The alcohol is undetectable. I am going to enjoy another one right now. Try one.

miyuki31 (1) - tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 1, 2013 does not count
Sweet smell like caramel faintly. Alcohol feeling conspicuous. There is no lingering and pleasant fragrance. I seem to just soda water.

AndyW68 (1108) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 5, 2013
Easy to drink. Golden pour with slight haze and white head. Aroma is primarily malt. Taste is creamy sweet malt. Has a slight citrus or astringent finish. Don’t really notice the high alcohol content. Good buzz delivery method.

330 ml can. 8.8%. 115410559. BB Nov 2012. From Malaysia. Thanks Mark!
Cloudy golden colour with a tiny white head. The aroma is malt, buttery sweetness and mild citrus. The flavour is malty. And sweet. And it’s surprisingly smooth. Don’t wanna drink much more but it’s not as bad as I expected. Rather drinkable malt liquor.
