2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fizzy pale yellow beer with a fizzy white head. Aroma is a sweet mix of cheap malt and corn sugar with a faint hops presence. Flavor is sweet and sugary but some malty notes appear in the palate. Finishes with a bold burst of hops bitterness. Overall, this is my favorite Asian beer. Nothing spectacular, but excellent for the style. A pleasant surprise.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Veyr pale gold, looks commercial. Nose not doing much. Soft mouthfeel, again very commercial with minimum levels of hoppiness and not much more in the malt department. A hot arvo beer at best.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Look, smells and tastes just about what I expected out of a S.E. Asian Lager. Mild scent of non-distinguishable malts and hops, slight wheat and dusty scents too. A bit sweet but has a bit thicker of a body than most of the other Asian macro lagers. Nothing fancy here. Would be better were I in Singapore on a hot humid evening washing down some spicy Szechwan dish or Indian curry

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow, almost whitish. Some adjunct sweetness in the aroma. Flavor is weak but there is a surprising amount of hop in the finish. Thin as water. Better than BMC but not by much.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Watery, no taste and some floral smell. Sweet malt and corn sweetness. Dry very bitter and metallic aftertaste. Pale yellow. Carbonation. A lot of soapy foam that gives some creamyness

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden color and a thick white head that holds for a decent amount of the glass. Aroma is slightly malty. Slightly bitter with a strong malt base. Aftertaste is more or less the same as the body of the beer. This style is very similar to other asian beers I have had.

Having tasted this beer for the first time while in Singapore which is were the beer is brewed. I most certainly have a different impression of the beer than most. I thought that it was very good for a pale lager, which I don’t usually choose first.
