When you ommit the article, its describing what is happening right now. You can ask me what Im eating, and I'd reply: Io mangi formaggio. However, if you were to serve me lunch, and you wonder if I can have cheese, like in life, in general (maybe I'm lactose intollerant, what do you know?) you can ask me: Mangi il formaggio? So in this example, I take it as right now, the lion is drinking water. Maybe we are at the zoo, and a child is pointing at the lion, asking what its doing, and you can say: Il leone beve aqua.
