1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma - Strange. Apple vinegar. Yeast. Spices. Alcohol.
Appearance - Looks promising. Clear and golden with billowy white head.
Taste - Huge malty sweetness, almost syrupy, medicinal, some caramel notes. Pretty boozy. The seeming lack of hop bitterness to offset the intense sweetness is a bit problematic. Strange side notes: metal, balsamic vinegar, cough syrup.
Palate - Medium bodied.
Overall - The most bizarre beer I have ever tasted. I am not quite sure what the brewers were trying to accomplish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 b3shineís. 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 Iíll 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.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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. Donít 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 itís surprisingly smooth. Donít wanna drink much more but itís not as bad as I expected. Rather drinkable malt liquor.
