Lion "Imperial Malt Pilsner"
Lion Brewery (Ceylon) PLC - Biyagama, Sri Lanka
Imperial Pilsner (ABV 8.8%)

[Suggested Glassware: Pilsner Glass]

Rating: 2.9/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 11/20

The pour was a clear golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that was mostly diminishing with poor spotty lacing.

The aroma was lightly sweet with a light grain malt, floral and grassy hops and a sweaty yeast and had notes of caramel, honey, a slight fruity ester (apple I believe) and a mild medicinal scent.

The taste was lightly sweet and very malty with light hints of caramel and honey from the start, and then had a mild taste of hops slowly work in to the mix with the finish having a mild fruity alcohol presence towards the end. The flavor hung on for an average time proceeding the swallow, with a slight alcohol sweetness and a more pronounced hoppy grain flavor that was left to linger on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was a bit beyond light in body with a light syrupy texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall this was a somewhat sweet fruity brew that had a good hop and grain taste along with a bold alcohol presence. Basically this was a tasty Pilsner with a kick...
