2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.

Halve liter blik. Blond, weinig kraag. Weinig geur, smaakt bitterzuur en vrij onaangenaam. Ik ben er niet van onder de indruk.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

Bottle. 4.8% ABV. Gold body. Medium white head that gradually dissipates. Pretty. Nose is lager malts, beef tea, hops, spice, red fruit, toast. Definite irony note. Crystal clear spring water. Clean bittersweet taste. Crisp, dry finish. Very refreshing.

(Bottled) A 625 ML BOTTLE ,in my Lion Tulip and that didn’t help me like this and I wanted to , as I love Lion stout - how these two beers come out of the same brewery is amazing ...like a mother having a beautiful daughter and ugly son . Its not a bad beer , no , Im sure it would go down well in tropical heat with complex curries ,but im biased , man . Nothing much to the flavour -sweet malt and lacing bitterness to make this refreshing enough for me to give a shit .

330ml bottle at home. Whilst Lion Stout is one of the best beers in the world, it appears the same brewery make on of the worst! Pours clear amber yellow with no head. Lemon and minerals on the nose, and grainy. Taste has an unpleasant metallic bitterness, and light sweetness. Not good.
