Rated on 1-17-2011 (Bottle) This beer’s appearance is a small white head that mostly diminishes, transparent yellow golden tint, fizzy carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is malty, grainy, corn, floral, sweet, fruity, spicy, and alcohol. The taste is sweet, crisp, malt, floral hops, corn, grainy, some alcohol, and a bit harsh. The mouth feel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. I did not like the harshness with the flavor of this beer and it made it difficult for me to drink this beer let alone enjoy it.

At Hops and Props Beer Fest. Not sure why no one likes this. The aroma is caramel sweet, cereal grain, grassy. The flavor follows. The finish is spicy noble hops. Good overall.

Oh my god, this is one of the all time worst beers! I poured it a bit too cold which should have benefitted this, but its quality shown thru. The beer reeked of sweet solvents. One taste and I almost retched; had to dump it and wash my mouth out. If you want somebody to leave your party, give them this beer.

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.

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.
