We’ve been brewing Lion Lager in Sri Lanka since 1881. Lion Lager is made from the very best ingredients - it’s malty, refreshing, and natural tasting. This is a beer of character for people of character.

ABV ranges from 4.1% to 4.8%

Dzhigga (209) - Kirov, RUSSIA - MAR 24, 2014
Can. Golden color with big but fast-disappearing head. In a minute there is no head at all. Malty aroma. Small amount of hops in taste. Typical south beer.

Bottle. Golden color. Floral bready grainy aroma and flavor with a hint of apple. Sweetish. Better as I expected.

Pours clear golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, corn and floral. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

bartlebier (2479) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2014
33cl bb05/2014, Edeka Mohr. Pours a homogenised yellow. Smells sulfuric, broth with a sweetish corn fume tail. Taste of pale wort, some hop kick. Slightl abv/?rice edge. Drinkable, somewhat reminiscent of the new awful Jupiler, also using colorants and rice. Not much of a pale match for the Lion Stout.

mutz (692) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2014
Halve liter blik. Blond, weinig kraag. Weinig geur, smaakt bitterzuur en vrij onaangenaam. Ik ben er niet van onder de indruk.

Weak malty and metallic aroma. Medium quite durable and long-lasting head. Clear golden body. Noticeable metallic taste with quite pleasant bitterness.

Bottle. Gift from a friend and my first Sri Lankan beer! :-) Let’s see if this one is half as good as the legendary Lion Stout from the same brewery. Pours a clear golden body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Nose is pale malts, DMS in the form of vegetable broth) and some faint floral hints. Taste is grainy pale malts, hints of grass and boiled vegetables. Light body and medium carbonation. Good for a South Asian beer, mediocre as an international lager, and half-bad as far as the brewery’s standards go, after what I can see.

grassy smell at first..malty later...taste is standard but has a slight pepper spice on the back end...kinda nice...that is the main taste though...the rest is light beer taste with some malt...burp tasted like motor oil...that was weird lol...only seem to get the pepperiness when you drink fast...maltiness at slow pace...weird...
