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.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2003 Fairly typical Pacific Rim Lager. Maybe a little drier than most and the flavors is a little bolder than, say, a Kirin.

They even have skunks in Thailand. Looks nice, if not a bit pale. Some noticeable malty aromas and flavors but that is the only saving grace. If I were in Thailand, I'd drink it because it was there and it has to be better than the tap water. Didn't notice the hops.

Well, this one starts off looking...terrible. Very light gold with white head. Smells typical pilsener, though a little weak and slightly pungent, really. Flavor is, well, not quite as bad as I'd expected. Certainly better than a lot of watery pilseners, and fairly drinkable. Certainly not up to par with the Eastern European pils though.

Grainy aroma, nice dark color. Has a decent finish, but the taste does not change at all. Slight citrus taste. I probably won't have this again, but it's worth trying.

Not bad considering this is macro swill. The ABV of 6% is not overly noticable and the taste is rather sour. Finish is dry and forgettable. Worth trying but not worth trying again.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - FEB 28, 2003
Surprisingly easy drinkable, considering its 6% by volume. Very pale color, almost no head. Taste is cruelly plastic. The label says "For export only", so the Thai don't drink it.

(23Feb2003--633ml bottle) When in Thai (restaurant), drink Thai beer. For better or for worse. My only regret is that I paid for the "big" bottle. Pitiful head; spongy, gutless, and very coarse. Surprised to see no adjuncts. Also surprised to see 6% ABV. It gave me a nasty headache. Not much to say here. A pervasive sourness, crudely alcoholic, dry. I'm nursing a cold; didn't catch the hops that other reviewers have. Really quite similar in gross character to the American Malt Liqours. Perhaps storage and transport has taken its toll, but I'm not sure how much better this swill could get.

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.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2003
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.
