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.

JorgeLee (1067) - Greater London, - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle from an Indian grocer in Wembley. Expectations were low. Surprisingly deep golden colour, this was a relatively malty tropical lager, had some (if not enough) hop. Went quite well with my curry. It’s a dull lager but this sample avoided any nasties and was refreshing enough.

maekchu (1766) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 17, 2014
Bottle from Yamaya. Flat, stale nose of washed-out grain and wet paper. Dark gold straw, very pretty, decent lace. Thin grainy initial / stale malt / light dusting of powdered sugar. Thin body. Not so pleasant. Disappointing, considering the quality of the stout they make at the same place.

Im not sure if its corn or rice, but I know its shiite! I can’t believe Lion Stout comes from the same brewery

Dzhigga (54) - 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.

bierkoning (9826) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle. Golden color. Floral bready grainy aroma and flavor with a hint of apple. Sweetish. Better as I expected.

Meilby (6415) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle 330ml @ home
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 (1184) - Belchum im Breisgau, 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 (489) - 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.
