Bottle bought at a supermarket in Victoria Falls,Zimbabwe Bottle enjoyed in Lokuthula Lodge, August 20,2012 Golden yellow color.A bit malty aroma.Watery taste.Industrial African lager.Easy drinkable.Less tasty and interesting than Zambezi and Bohlingers in my opinion.

The 1980's South African version was a beautiful rich gold colour and precision flavoured - the recent Zimbabwe version is not as good

As Lion Lager (Zimbabwe) brewed by Delta Breweries (SABMiller), Harare, Zimbabwe.
Can. Clear golden color, white foam. Aroma: malt, slightly sour, apple, some fruits. Taste: malt, a little apple, a bit watery, usual south lager.

440ml Can: Pours a crystal clear very light golden with persistent white head. A light malty aroma with slight fruitiness. A nice maltiness in the back ground with a crisp clean finish. Not as sweet as i remember, however, not a bad thing. A good example of a pale lager. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Nice bitterness. Overall a much improved beer and for me, well balanced, easy drinking and very sessionable.

Can. Courtesy of Grege from Harare. This was worse than zambezi which is hard to achieve.

Bottle from Zimbabwe brought to UK by a neighbour. Pours an attractive bright golden colour with a decent sized long lasting white head. Aroma of maize with a touch of pepper. A light sweetness to it, with a good level of bitterness. Body is light, thin but slightly oily texture. Average and steady carbonation level, thought this was quite a decent pale lager.

Can shared by Caleb, thanks! Pours a clear light yellow with a touch of gold and a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma is full of corn and straw with a bit of earthy grain underlying. Flavor has lots of corn as well with some sweet grain and a bit of earthy bread.

Decent for a Zimbabean beer. some bready and malty notes. A Zimbabwean classic........

In the can @ Darkness Eve thanks to CLevar. Clear yellow appearance with a white head. Slightly metallic nose with a touch of floral notes and corn. Flavor is a bit too sweet along with little hops. Not horrible.

Can at Darkness Day. Pale pour, weak grainy taste. This sucks but I’m glad to get the tick so that’s that.
