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.

Sweet smell like caramel faintly. Alcohol feeling conspicuous. There is no lingering and pleasant fragrance. I seem to just soda water.

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.

Aroma is perfumed and slightly astringent malts. The flavor is grain sweetness, mild earthiness and a slightly tart/alcoholic finish.

Bottle. Slightly hazy gold pour with a small white head. Lots of sweet corn in this, and a bit medicinal and boozy. Not a fan.

Pours a slightly hazy orange yellow. Foamy white head. Aroma is malt and citrus. Taste is overly sweet without much of a bitter offset. Too sweet to try again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Chudwick (2819) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - DEC 10, 2012
11.2oz bottle - pours misty yellow with quickly diminishing white head and modest lacing. Nose is boiling pasta with corn. Flavor adds floral hops and malt liquor. Alcohol burn. Light to moderate sweetness. Almost certain this beer gets the job done for real cheap. Chicken feed aftertaste (cracked dry corn). That is all.

This beer really cannot compare to its darker cousin, the Lion Stout. Whereas the latter is world class, this one blends into mediocrity. Surprisingly alcoholic, and more of that alcohol flavor should’ve been disguised. Bready malts, some caramel, with a medium body.
