Tried the Delta Lion Lager whilst in Vic Falls. This beer was a nice change of direction from the Bolingher and Zambesi. The beer poured a golden clear with thin white head that did not lace. The smell had some grass like hops and malt. The taste was sweeter than the others which was a nice change of pace. The mouthfeel was light to medium in body with good carbonation. Overall, it might have been my favorite from Delta.

Not so much of a review (it was a good beer when I had it in 2005 in Vic Falls). Just remember that the tagline in the 90's was something like "Lion Lager - The Golden Lubricant". Don't believe me? Head for Senanga, Zambia and head for the restroom to see the aging poster.
