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%

I asked for a case of Lion stout, and instead was given a case of Lager. I took it as an omen and decided to keep it instead. Big mistake on my part. There isn’t anything exceptional about this beer at all. It isn’t awful, but its just boring. I definitely had trouble drinking more than one of them in a sitting.

Had several while in Sri Lanka. Pale golden with a fairly big white head. Notes of bread and yeast in the aroma. Medium sweetness and bitterness. Nothing special ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

LazyPyro (176) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2015
330ml bottle. Pale golden colour, white head. Light aroma of malts, grassy hops. Taste is moderately sweet, with a light bitterness in the finish, which was rather dry. Average lager, nothing special here.

The aroma offers only weak malt notes and the taste is also somewhat tame it. Malt sweetness is a little high for the type, and the lack of really hoppy bitterness makes it a lager in the sweet end of the scale.

50cl Can, thanks for bringing this Thijs! 4.8% ABV. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma is sweet, paper, light malty, honey, trace of hops. Flavour of paper, light malty, hay, honey, sweet, light bitter finish. Light bodied. OK lager, but far from good.

The_Osprey (4208) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2015
Bottle share at Chriso’s. Clear pale orange, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is wafer, biscuity malts, barley. Plain and malt-forward. Body is medium, soft carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is soft biscuity malts, vague vegetal dimension, papery finish. It’s drinkable.

Het bier van Sri Lanka, overal verkrijgbaar en het meest voorkomende bier van het land. Weinig smaak en flauw.

Paladares (135) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 4, 2015
Dorada ligeramente turbia con bastante espuma. Aroma a cereal, sobre todo a arroz tostado. Recuerda al té genmaicha. En boca destaca el toque cereal, aunque resulta acuosa. Es refrescante y agradable. Postgusto tirando a dulce. No está mal.
