Survey Says : This brew was light bodied and very refreshing. It was slightly sweet and very drinkable with no bitter notes. This beer is a good simple lager with nothing to get too excited about. Despite its name, this brew comes across as more of a lager than a pilsner style brew since there is very little hops flavor.

Lion Imperial Premium Malt Pilsner

31 Aug

Lion Imperial Premium Malt Pilsner

Brewer: Lion Brewery 

Location:  Biyagama, Sri Lanka

Interesting Fact: Lion Brewery was the first brewery in Sri Lanka, established in 1881

Alcohol Percentage:  8.8%

Survey says:  This was a delightful medium-body foreign beer, with a neat picture of a lion on the label. It had a nice fruity aroma. The color was a rich amber-orange, with little to no head. This beer was only lightly carbonated. It definitely has a fruity, sweet, apple cider type flavor. It is not bitter at all, but does have some malt type tones. There really is not much hint of alcohol flavor. It is very easy to drink being that it is almost cider-like, but at 8.8% alcohol it could quickly impact your day! The panel loved it and one member went so far as to call it “awesome.” I would definitely try this one again some day.
