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.

I’ll try anything once, but don’t expect me to drink it a second time. This is beer for the American Lager fan, a step up from many of the macros, but just barely.

Medium size short lasting creamy-white head over a pale gold yellow clear colour. Faint hops, lightly rancid corn syrup and something approaching a 3 day unwashed body yeast aroma. Some alcohol comes through as it warms. Light body with softish raw or stale hop bitter flavoured start. Milder sweetish corn flavoured middle and Aftertaste is doubly stale bitter. Probably complements Thai cuisine because Thai food is usually quite spicey. Still, I have had a lot worse.

Not high on my list of repeat purchases. The things you find in some sampler packs...

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

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.

(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.

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.

Pretty typical lager, slightly darker and a bit more malty than standard macros, but still quite lackluster

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.

This is not very impressive. It has very much malt liquor characteristics, kind of like a Old English 800 and not at all like a barley malt beer. Hops were there, but not enough. This is a pathetic beer, and no excuse for a pils. I would drink it only if no other beers were available.
