1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
my sample was very skunked. I realize this affects my rating, but I feel I need to review it anyways. The aroma was roughly skunk and rotting vegetable matter. Not very nice. Appearance was pale yellow, perhaps urine color? Taste was watered down with cardboard and corn flavor. This was horrible. Ugh.
If I can get a fresher sample, I will revisit this, but I canít say Iím looking forward to it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a deep gold yellow color with a small amount of bubbly white head. Aroma was cornish and sweet. Flavor pretty watery and light, but a little more substantiated than most lagers. Overall, not bad with a good spicey thai meal.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (330ml). Poured very pale clear bubbly yellow with a large fizzy-foamy-rocky semi-lasting white head. Aroma is "premium ass" - vegetal, dungy, skunky, foul corn and alcohol. Taste is pretty inoffensive, sweet stale malt, fresh hay, quick off the tongue - fairly sugary mouthfeel, lightish body - apart from the smell, this isnít bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at the Solomon Cutler, Birmingham. Pretty good Lager here, with a nibble of strength in the backbone to keep the interest. A tinge of salt and bitterness and some prickly malt. Firm.

Gotta agree with curvedbeer -- this is one of the best Asian mass-brews (IF you can find a fresh bottle, which can be tough in the States), though Kiuchiís Hitachino Nest line has some gems as well. Clear light straw-colored liquid produces a constant stream of vigorous bubbles that form a thin white head. Sharp hop aroma with some malt showing as well. Flavor starts with the same hop kick and then settles into a pleasant, surprisingly sweet light malt character. Medium, creamy palate. This simple, refreshing thirst-quencher hits one right down the middle, being neither boring and watery or overly complex. Criminally underrated here in my opinion. Fair enough -- guess that means more for me.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2005 My favourite mass produced Asian beer. It has a distinctive taste which separates it from the pack. Beer Singha sold in Thailand is stated as being 6% Alcohol.

Gee, this wasnít that good. Offputting monkey urine smell. It tasted slightly better than it smelled, but as the beer warmed it became almost undrinkable.
