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.

Not outstanding. This seemed to have a bit of chill haze, actually. The flavor was somewhat sweet, and left a filmy sensation in my mouth. Otherwise, not bad, just nothing to write home about.

Things would be different if I were reviewing the variety of this beer which is available in Thailand. As it stands, the export version that reaches North America is a vile creation along the lines of your average malt liquor. In trying to fit into the NA market, they have left the alcohol content lower merely by reducing the fermentation time of the beer. The large amount of sugar in export Singha is very obvious, just swirl around the bottle some and you will see it coat the inside. Beer un nee yaah mak.

Very bland, but is thirst quenching. Decent brew to drink with hot Thai food, but not much flavor. Spicy food kinda drowns it out.

Me no talk Thai, but me drink Thai, and me no impressed. A little more character than an american standard. At least Thailand is trying. Cap, Cap.

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.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2005 August 23, 2003 - Rating 0.9 - Singha? more like Crapha. once again, it’s like budcoorsmiller has branched out into other countries. no wonder it says "For Export Only" on the bottle...they don’t want to expose this generic coors clone to their population. April 24, 2005 - Rating 1.9 - Had a bottle of this in a Thai restaurant in Amsterdam. As clear yellow as colors come. Smells like water. My fiancee described it as "a beer feel without the beer taste." Very clean "flavor".

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2008 Had this at a Thai restaurant. Served Very cold. Smell of spice and hops. Looks like a urine sample once the head disappears. Flavor started out OK, but metallic/alcohol aftertaste got worse as I drank and the beer got a little warmer. Couldn’t finish this one.

Bottled. Not a great beer. Pale golden colour. Grassy aroma, with some sweetness. A watery beer. Won’t try again.

Nice pour, but the head dissipates immediately. The flavor’s okay, but leaves a nasty metallic flavor in the mouth. "Strong hop?" I don’t think so. Not even a true malt taste. Pretty much like the mass produced lagers with a stronger ABV.
