Poured into a shaker pint glass.
Look: Slightly hazy golden body with an orange hue. Foamy white head with good retention. A few lines of lacing, and random spots, if that.
Aroma: Malty and sweet, a subtle touch of dried grass.
Taste: Really malty, sweet, clean. A touch of dried grass in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, smooth.
Overall: Really impressed. This tastes great and has a great mouthfeel. The ABV is hidden very well!

Well it's a hot day here in Colombo, not sure how we will go with this one
A - Pours a clear golden colour with a white head that reduces quickly.
S - small amounts of grains, malts and sweetness
T - up front some decent grains, then the malt kicks in. Up to then it's ok but a severe booze flavour overwhelms the palate.
M - light to medium body with low carbonation
O - this is really just a strong lager. With such a beer it's hard to mask the alcohol and sugar. They have masked the sugar but not the alcohol. Would not seek out again.

Oh my god, this is one of the all time worst beers! I poured it a bit too cold which should have benefitted this, but its quality shown thru. The beer reeked of sweet solvents. One taste and I almost retched; had to dump it and wash my mouth out. If you want somebody to leave your party, give them this beer.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip.
I'm a little jaded with this review but I guess my impulsiveness serves me right. Its called Imperial, the bottle is black, and I've had Lion Stout before and enjoyed it. So Lion Imperial to my surprise... is a pilsner.
A: Golden yellow with moderate 2 fingers of head.
S: Grains. Some floral hops but very mild.
T: Cereal grains and sugar, plus extra sugar, with some sugar. A subtle smokiness. Hops are nearly absent.
M: This is a pilsner? It's a little thick, somewhat syrupy. The beer is flat, essentially without carbonation.
O: Meh. As I said, I thought I was buying the Imperial Lion Stout. I won't get the pilsner ever again. I've had so many better and cheaper pilsners...
