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%

This is a light, non-skunky, tasty little beer. I was suprised to find it here in Michigan. Good Stuff.

Quite good, prefer their stout. Nice fresh nose and a bit hoppier than most lagers.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2006 Some people must have got this guy skunked. Perhaps the crispest beer i’ve ever had. Goes down very smooth and has a taste that will make you smile and say Thats good beer.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Cary, NC. This beer is a clear golden color with a fairly large white head. The aroma has a slight citrus smell with some grass and hops tossed in. The flavor is full of malt with some hops. Overall, a decent beer. I believe this is the first beer I have had from Sri Lanka.

Land #42 Das Bier ist mild, ohne allerdings wie viele andere asiatische Biere ins wässrige abzudriften. Der frische hopfige Geschmack und der malzige Abgang lassen auf ein Lager ohne Mängel schließen. Test vom 27.4.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 13,11,11,11,9,11 - 11,10

Good beer. Much better than the lion stout. The foil around the cap makes this look like your drinking some high-priced, high-class beer when it is really nothing more than a slightly better version of Bud Light.

[This bottle was brought back to me from Sri Lanka and the abv was 4.8%.] Bohemian noble hops aroma with faint crisp malt and nothing offensive. Only wispy white mist over a bright gold drink. Nice fresh hops up front in good balance with crisp sweet malt. No skunk, corn, or pissy yellow characteristics, other than the hops variety. Medium body with medium carbonation and a clean finish. This beer is right up there with the good Czech pilsers--I wonder whether the product that you buy in North America is different than what you get in Ceylon. Very nice.

Golden and slightly carbonated. Very clear appearance and slightly dry.Fairly run of the mill lager, not in the same class as their wonderful stout.

22oz bottle: Pale yellow body with a rising, white cap that leaves a good amount of lace. Mild aroma is pleasant and non-offensive. Light notes of straw, wheat and buttery caramel fill the nose. Spritzy carbonation. The remains mild and off-flavor free with more light caramel and straw. Finishes with a lightly grassy notes, without lending too much bitterness and overpowering the finesse of this beer. This is a pale lager that I would reach for again.
