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.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
I’ve got to stop paying four dollars for a bottle of imported premium lager. It’s just not worth it. There is nothing of interest in this beer other than the fact that the label says it is made in Thailand. I think I’ve ruined my taste for these type of lagers by drinking so many craft ales. I guess it’s my own fault for liking interesting beer so much.

Pours gold with a small head. Gold in color. Drinkable, but nothing much to speak of in the way of taste or smell other than a fleeting hint of malt and a stale hop or two.

OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2005 Blonde très pale à l’allure de pilsner industrielle. Dégagement gazeux très actif lors du service mais ne réussissant pourtant qu’à créer une timide mousse blanche au caractère pleinement éphémère. Sirop de maïs, céleri et choux bouilli se moquent du grain qui se résigne à prendre la fuite aussitôt. Passablement sucré en bouche, absence flagrante de houblon malgré le faible caractère épicé. Finale sèche et métallique attaqué par l’alcool, devenant ainsi rapidement insupportable. La dernière raison valable pour aller en Thaïlande.

Wow, I believe this is my first Thai beer, and I know it is my first Singha beer. Pale gold pour with medium fizzy white head. Aroma of sour malt, thiols, hopcit, slight Bangkok poontang. Tastes hopcity with some honey malt at the finish. Definitely better than Coors Light. The finish has a sweet, corny malt flavor which gets better as it warms. Not bad at all.

ALLOVATE (2816) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 29, 2005
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.

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

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.

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.
