2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle in Kandy, SL. Smells of cheap American beer. Slightly acidic, grassy, boozy. Pour is amber with a thick white/yellow head. Tons of carbonation on the pour-- literally can see the carbonation for minutes afterward. Palate is not complex; tastes of a lite american beer but with a boozy tinge. Zero complexity, almost watery but deceptively high ABV. Essentially the malt liquor of SL.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Honey-like color with medium head. Aroma is malty, fruity, light alcohol aroma. Taste is lightly sweet, with huge amount of alcohol. Difficult to drink, especially it’s strange to drink this beer in Sri Lankian hot weather. Bad one. Beer for fast-drunk.

Review: Bottle of Lion Strong Lager 8.80% ABV
A Gold medal winner in 2012 from the Monde Selection, the Michelin Guide version of beer, the lager came in some pretty impressive imagery, the bottle showing a very intimidating lion face. I guess signifying strength and prowess. Perhaps his name is Cecil?
Pour we have a dark golden colour, with a nice sized white head that dissipates quick enough, leaving pretty good lacing . Looks decent, like a proper beer.
Got a very fruity aroma, an apple and a lot of sweet smelling malts. The smell was quite strong, all that fruit!
For a lager that is 8.8%, it was very well hidden, not feeling the true strength at all.
There is a very fruity taste to this beer, very overpowering. The taste lingers in the mouth, very sweet with a good grain taste. Some bitterness in the aftertaste.
Interesting beer alright, could actually be a decent session beer considering the ABV. as it was very easy to drink. I had four of them, and was fine! (I think!).
