i don’t understand why you would want to drink with a reasonably high alcohol content in such a hot climate like Thailand. Two of these in the middle of the day in the heat, would flatten me. Still, the beer is reasonable, and you certainly can’t actually taste the high alcohol content.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Native Thai bottle--drank it there.
Singha is the standard of Thai Brewing Arts. That being said, Singha sucks. The alcohol level is intimidating--somewhere between 5 and 8%. They don't even seem to know because their brewing practices are medieval.
Boon Rahd Brewery, which brews a lot of other crappy beers (mostly european beers under license) doesn't seem to have a grip on just what brewing is. Maybe they don't refridgerate their shit, I don't know, but it's universally skunky, phenolic, and nasty.
Nose is full of off-aromas--like this beer was stored for two years in a basement (In Bangkok that's 75 degrees). Head is thin and white, but vanishes soon after you pour. The color is a nice light golden brown. The first taste is one of lemon peel, cider, plastics and cabbage. Holy Crap this stuff is bad!
But then, I only had one moderately good beer in all of Thailand.

The smell is sweet and hoppy. Pours clear gold with no head. Tastes sweet of wheat but is a bit watery.

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

Big head quickly collapses, little to no lacing. Pale straw body, slight grassy aroma. Sweet flavour with some run of the mill bitterness, not much. Nothing particularly offensive or good about it.
