COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Ingredients: Water; Barley malt; Hops, Yeast.
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%

JorgeLee (1369) - 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.

MichaelAwesome (5287) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 5, 2015
Wie befürchtet ein recht dünnes und nichtssagendes Lager. Mit ein wenig Honig im Hintergrund, aber das nur leicht getreidige Piwo ist eigentlich geschmacklos. Schade drum, denn die Lionjungs punkten allein schon beim Etikett.

McTapps (5305) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle from trinkgut in Münster. The beer has got a clear golden colour with an airy head and medium body. Aroma of hops and bread. Taste of thin hops, bread, mild fruits and straw. Easy drinkable, refreshing, yet nothing special.

Ascelja (171) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 28, 2015
Can 0,5l; many thanks to Rotin’s sister for brought it back from Sri Lanka.
Clear pale body, medium white head. Quite pleasant aroma of malt and notes of crispy rice. Taste is simple malty, sweet, little yeasty, notes of hops. Without awful aftertaste typical for this style. Light body, medium to full carbonation. Drinkable, not bad.

mansquito (3965) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2015
New Beer Distributors, NYC: pours gold with white head. Aroma is sugar, corn, but nothing off. Taste is pretty sweet. Few off tastes. Not a bad lager. I think I would take this over bud.

loco_gallego (217) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Blonde dorée, translucide. Mousse blanche peu persistante. Au nez bof, avec une touche métallique. Côté céréalé. En bouche houblonnage acceptable, rendant une balance acceptable. Ca va elle se boit malgré un nez assez infâme...

Nevalainen (230) - FINLAND - JAN 9, 2015
A Can 0,3 l 4,8%. Clear Golden color with tiny head. Aroma is malty. Difficult to say what else. Taste is medium bitter, but nothing saying. Still ok to drink.
