2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2005 (Bottled) Pale golden color, quite small head. Slightly fruity, flowery-hoppy, corny aroma. Smooth, sweetish-malty, grassy-hoppy, fruity, honeyish flavor. Slightly stingy-carbonated, medium-bodied, bitter, warming and sticky palate. Hides the ABV well, especially when drank cool. Very easily drinkable as such a strong lager, Singha reminds me of some of its Baltic counterparts - but, on the other hand, it has some light-corny properties of the beers from tropical countries.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours syrupy gold. No head. Lots of carb. Skunked hoppy aroma. Meaty skunked taste. Although I don't want any more, I will continue the tasting. Apple juice, corn, rice. Some malts, not bitter. If there were any hops, they've left nothing but their skunky droppings. It has a good mouthfeel. The flavour is foul and cheap.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light taste with no head or lacing. It had a small ginger taste but, was mostly crap. I didn't like the taste at any point.

This stuff is terrible. Crappy color no head, watery mouthfeel, and horrible aftertaste. Just plain bad- enough said.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I don't know what to think of this one. It says malt liquor on the bottle, but it tastes like a lager, and not the typical malt liquor I am used to. Too bad it is very watery. Watery taste, and not much in the aromas category, but hey, it is 6% in case you want to get ripped.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Maybe if I were to try this with some tasty Thai food I'd like it better. By itself I'm not impressed.
Pours a yellow with very little head and no lacing. I should comment on th enique bottle, though, it's verry cool.
Smells, well, when I first opened it up it smelled like garlic. It still has a hint of that, but now it smells mainly like a typical macro.
Tastes like a typical macro lager. There's a stronger sweetness to it that would make it enjoyable with Asian food, but that's about it. Not other tastes I can identify.
Mouthfeel is, well, typical if that. Plenty of carbonation but watery. Drinkability would be great, perhaps, with food. Alone it's not impressive. And if I were to rate this with food I'd have to change a bunch of other reviews as well.

Every country that brews beer has their own local answer to Bud. This, presumably, is Thailand's. It's only redeeming quality - assuming you are drinking to get drunk - is the extra percentage point in the alcohol department.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Crystal clear, pale yellow lager.
Corn and straw in the nose and flavor. Well-balanced, but certainly not all that strong "hop-wise." Light-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel. Short, dry finish.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pungent hops aroma, light bitter, slightly metallic. Beany character, with little malt contribution to the aroma. Standard lager-type smell. Pale yellow clear with small white head that dissipates quickly with little lacing. Medium-light watery body with heavy carbonation. A little bit of sweetness up front, not malty. Hops come in, but are not fruity or floral. Impart a pungent and dry bitterness to the finish, that lasts well after the beer is swallowed. This beer would be a nice with food, but by itself it's not very good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad. All of these foreign lager types from India, Thailand, etc. seem to taste more or less the same. (As do most of the American lagers, now that I think of it). Overall, it's drinkable - just different. Extremely pale yellow color, beery aroma, and malty, slightly hoppy flavor with a slightly dry finish.
