COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A premium lager beer brewed from the finest ingredients, Singha is a full-bodied 100% barley malt beer that is distinctively rich in taste with strong hop characters. Brewed with three hops: Saaz, Perle and Hallertau. Editor’s Note: Recipe scaled down from 6% to 5% in 2007.

Began drinking one of these before sitting down for a grilled fish dinner. Seemed to compliment the food quite well, with it’s light body and subtle sweetness. Pours a brilliant pale gold with irregular bubbles failing to form a head (my sample was bought back from Thailand, by my grandmother). Husky and grainy aroma, subtle and quite dry, with lemon-grass and bay-leaves coming through and a very mild degree of DMS (maybe the sample). Very light on the tongue, crisp upfront and in the back and huskily dry across the palate. A little honey, for sweetness, upfront and leafy, lemony hops all the way through to the short crisp, grapefruit swallow. Quite balanced and unusual in a typically South-east Asian lager way. Sessionable, well suited to the summer months and turned out to be a lot better than I was expecting.

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2005
Bottle. The colour is yellow; the semi-compact foam builds a quite high head.

The smell is dry-bitter, fresh and rather neutral.

The bitterness is surprisingly large; it is almost like drinking a German pilsner. There are some notes of dry malt, some white bread and a fine citric touch. The aftertaste is a bit bitter sour with notes of lemon/lime. It is rather long and dry.

Mouthfeel is quite strong and pleasant with lots of big bubbles.

A good lager with more flavour than I had expected, and it works very well with spicy food.

Drinkable, at best, though it has a decent malt backbone and saaz spiciness; clean and better than expected

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Bottle. Pale yellow in color. Very light in malt aroma, some grassy hop aroma. Fairly benign, not really offensive. Probably goes very nicely with some spicey Thai food while dining on a humid day in Thailand. Fair.

Had this in Amsterdam. As clear yellow as I’ve ever seen beer arrive. A beer feel without the beer taste. Very watery.

hawkshadow (107) - Rural Retreat, Virginia, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Not near as bad as I thought it would be. Initial aroma was kinda skunky, but that faded very quickly leaving a fairly nice earthy yeast and grassy, hoppy smell. Poured a pale yellow with a white head that mostly diminished. Taste is pretty balanced between the smooth malt and some tangy hoppiness. This is not a great beer, but if you compare it to american and canadian lagers it is quite good.

Boutip (5185) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2005
Bottle: Poured a gold color lager with some great carbonation resulting in a medium head with standard retention. Aroma is quite weak with some malt and light alcoholic side to it. Malty taste with some hops and some subtle floral notes. Light alcohol burn made this a little less unpleasant though.

A pleasant lager on a hot day, but once you start to consider the somehwat bitter aftertaste one’s opinion drops a notch. Slightly unpleasant floral nose at times.

johndoughty (4278) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2005
Golden Germanic like lager. Initially quite sweet then dryness creeps in. A little too highly carbonised for my liking but nevertheless a pleasant example of this style.

Golden colour with a small white head. Malty aroma with a hoppy touch. Malty and grainy flavor with a sharp bitter finish.
