Sonjeroo (20) - - JAN 5, 2016
From bottle in Weligama, SL. Smells hoppy, maybe grassy. Yellow-amber color with a thick white-off white head. Pretty sweet for a lager with a hint of bitterness that isn’t overwhelming. Overall, the palate is pretty bland. Nothing particularly interesting but standard for a developing world lager.

Myonlyvice (305) - DENMARK - OCT 31, 2015
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 (1213) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2016 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.

TorbenJensen (1528) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2015
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.

kto (1313) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 28, 2015
pours clear golden with a frothy white head and some lacing. weak sweetish malty aroma. flavour mostly cardboard, some hay, grass and mineral water. very similar to thai or chinese industrial lagers.

Borresteijn (7172) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2015
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.

1/15/2009 8:20:17 AM Bottle at Home. Okay lager. Gold color, slight head. Hoppy and sweet taste. Not much to it.

2.4
The_Osprey (7998) - 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.

2.1
Bornyensis (321) - BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2015
Het bier van Sri Lanka, overal verkrijgbaar en het meest voorkomende bier van het land. Weinig smaak en flauw.
