How is this stuff so cheap in Thailand? It is easily the best beer available at the price point and it is available everywhere. Many a night were spent at Home Bar, drinking as many as eight 22oz bottles of this stuff-- hangovers weren’t pleasant, but probably not as bad as drinking one or two Changs. Mostly corn, less chemical than its competitors.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle in Thailand. Yellow gold with a white head. On the nose is alcohol and I’m wondering how strong this is (5.5% I later learn), corn and a whiff of hop. Taste is alcoholic harshness and some light bitterness. Bitter finish.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Probably the best beer to drink in Thailand. It is about as tasteless as Tiger, which is a good thing considering the foul options, but it costs less. In the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A pale blonde lager with a thin white head. In aroma, a light sulfury malt with light sweet notes. In mouth, light chalky malt with light sweet fruityness, not offensive, but not really good either. Perfect for 27C humid weather. Bought for 30 B at a 7-11 close to my hotel, BKK.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2016 You really can throw a blanket over the mainstream beers in Asia. Slightly more obvious malt flavour here but still a slightly rough industrial beer padded out with some sweetness. Some bitterness late.

Ljus vätska, fruktansvärd äcklig doft, smakar mest smör och soja.
Inte något att dricka igen.

Bottle bought in Bangkok.
Very light golden with a white head. Boring aroma and taste. Sweet, butter, bread. Very light mouth feel. Once in a liftetime experience.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A crisp, clear color. Finger thick head takes about a minute to die down. Looks like a lager should.
Aromas of slightly roasty malts, buttery, and sweet citrus hops. Not bad.
The taste is a little like… buttery movie popcorn with a light hop touch. Definitely some corn flavor. Not bad (for Thailand)
The mouthfeel is light and crisp, medium follow through.
I could have a few of these.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
An ok lager from the Singha-company. And not much is different in taste or aroma. I tried it, and I drank it, and I would have forgotten all about it if I didn´t have my notes about it.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Uninspiried, but not bad tasting, lager beer. Sweet and "neutral", I guess. Not 100% clean maltiness, but not cheapisly watery either.
