2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bought in a shop in Sri Lanka. I brought this beer home from my holiday to Sri Lanka but unfortunately about 25% of the beer managed to seep through the top into my suitcase. As it was a 625 ml bottle I still had a fair bit to taste. Anyway, I wasn’t a great lover of it however despite it being the strongest beer I’ve ever tried I didn’t think the alcohol was overpowering and this was more than drinkable. So although not a thumbs up from me It’s still the best strong beer I’ve tried.

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!).
