1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Smells like a creamy bodily fluid other than saliva mixed with sour mash. Which wouldn't be bad, except it tastes much worse than the aroma.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very nicely done hops, but the romance ends there. The aroma is decent--I'd describe it as a sort of pillowly, lacy graininess. I wouldn't have guessed that this was a 100% barley beer. Appearance is fairly pathetic and the finish is sickeningly buttery.

really cool bottle cap on this one. a red dragon head. anything else nice to say about this beer? nope, that's about it. but wait, it's from thailand, thats kinda cool: like if someone handed you a piece of gravel, you'd go: "so what?" and they said, it's from the wabba-habbi oasis in the sudanese sahara, you'd go: "oh, ...uh...neat". singha is in michael jackson's book of 500 elite beers, the "great beer guide", tho why it's there is not clear. he unenthusiastically remarks that it has "a robust late dryness" (fiction) and that it has added sugar (?!). and check out this geyser of superlative approbation: "some saaz hops are employed". employed doing what?, driving the fork lifts at the factory?! i don't like the looks, people with hepatitis are more yellow than this, and the head was failing. i don't like the smell much: honied-cream corn and cotton laundry. taste: light carbonation and honey-suckle sweet malt, grass seeds, quite watery, no finish. so, mike, how about dropping the singha and adding anything by stone, avery or dogfish head to the next edition? unless you've reeeeallly got a thing for exotic gravel.

Label describes it as a malt liquor. Hoppy aroma, pale gold colour, no head. Starts out with a hint of sweetness and hops, then just gets bitter and bad.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
More like a Helles style, in my opinion. No spicy hoppiness, at least not enough to be a pils. Medium bodied, with a sweet malty presence. Hops are fairly mild, and non existent for a pilsener. Not bad overall. Went well with pizza.

First time I had this beer I liked it. I was also at a party. Maybe that's why. Second time I had it it tasted skunked. It's also very light and watery. Not much flavor. Very boring beer. Do yourself a favor and buy yourself 12 pack of Schlitz for what a 6-pack of this costs. Only saving grace is the ABV.

Skunky!!! Flavour is strongly bitter & a little sour. Syrupy texture. Not worth it unless stuck in Thailand.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pale yellow color with little head or lace. Slightly sweet but mostly skunky aroma. Slightly skunky malty flavor with a slight hoppiness and a bitter finish. Light bodied and a touch dry.

Had this bottled at the Typhoon Brewery in NYC. Tasted and looked like your typical asian pilsener.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Initial pour is a light, golden body with a huge, white head pulling a quick disappearing act. The aroma is boring, with little to note. The flavor follows suit quite well. Why do I continually do this to myself?
