2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear pale yellow with a fully receding white head. Aroma of biscuit, corn, and sweet malts. Tastes lightly sweet, and noticably more drinkable than the average lager. Light bodied with high carbonation. Finishes very neutral. Iím sure thereís rice in here, but itís corn that Iím tasting. Pale lagers do taste quite similar across the globe, but Iím consistantly amazed at how much I prefer the Asian varieties.

500ml bottle from Sainsburys. Pale gold with disappearing white head. Smell of maize. Flavour is dull and awful. In fact I donít normally pour beer away but this was awful, so I did

Very classy packaging for this beer ,the label and 22 oz bottle look good.
The beer itself is pretty clean, simple lager in the German style. Pretty similar to Becks but with maybe just a touch more taste.
I actually, much to my surprise, found this quite nice and easilly drinkable.

Bottled. A golden coloured lager with a pleasant white head. The aroma and taste are lagerish with grass but also a little hop. Clean and drinkable, beats a lot of lagers comfortably.

Bottle. An employee of mine brought this back for me from Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia. Very malty, creamy lager aroma with some corn notes. Crystal clear gold with a cascade of champagne like caronation rushing up to form a smooth, lasting, tight bubble, white head. Nice artistic lace. I must also note that the label and cap are very attractive. I love the blue, orange and gold color combination and the tiger logo on the cap and label are sharp. Brewed to please the masses, and please them Iím sure it does. As pale lagers go, pretty darn good. And I now see that it enjoys a welll above average percentile in its style. I think this beer is underrated, as are the majority of beers on this site that arenít big and flavorful. I could see myself at a 5 star hotel in Ipoh, enjoying a Tiger at the bar with some bar snacks.

A Mes rate:
Well its pretty rank. I have yet to try an Asian lager that I like but I am assured they exist. I only drank it as it was free and there was nothing else but alcopops.

I had to have a jug of Tiger when in Singapore. The beer is OK, but nothing work taking home. Orange in color, little hops flavor.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can (500ml). Poured clear, pale, oily yellow-gold with a big, fizzy, rocky, ephemeral head. Aroma strongly metallic and chemical, with harsh burnt flour notes and plenty of sugary sweetness. Taste is sweet and chemical and fairly harsh, but a strange apple/carrot juice flavour makes is almost horrfyingly interesting. Mouthfeel is thin and metallic. Apart from that strange sweet juice note in the flavour, just another S.I.L.
