2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 66cl. Poured a dark amber, with a decent white head that actually lasts until the end (unlike most Asian beers). The aroma is fairly rich, malty and hoppy, with a definite hint of caramel. The flavour is similar, not watery though not particularly flavoursome - golden hops with a touch of malt. The aftertaste is similar, with a metallic tang I presume from the alcohol.
Good, probably the best Thai beer Iíve had.

Probably not worth the money. Purs nicely into my official Singha glass, who knows where that came from. I canít comment on the quality of the "100% barley malt," but it has more heft than BMC and certainly more balance. Nice crisp hoppy finish reminds me of a Helles. Very refreshing, and the 6% is dangerous. Iím usually about frou deep before I realize it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Iíve had gallons of this stuff, since anything else is hard to get in most of Thailand.
Itís brightly carbonated, smells good and has a decent flavor and aroma. Much better on draft, but a cold bottle of Bia Sing goes cools off those hot Thai afternoons in the rainy season.

12oz bottle at Benjarong restaurant, Monroe WA. Pale golden. Standard lager aroma but surprisingly not one-dimensional flavour. Even manages a noticeable hop finish. First Oriental beer Iíve had that was actually worth a damn. Itís also worth noting that I did have some reasonably spicy Thai food to drink this with.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2006 Clear golden-yellow with a small white head. Grainy, sweet aroma. Crisp flavor with some bitterness. Medium-bodied with a somewhat bitter finish. Though this isnít a really awesome beer, I actually really like it.

An average beer from far away. It goes good with thai food, but doesnt have that fine subtle mix of flavors that many micros have. All in all, a good beer to go with some hot spicy thai food.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Supple malt base and some hops presence. Smooth taste and decent body. Better than average for a premium lager.
