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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light colour. Aroma is a simple bitterness but there is almost no bitterness in the flavour which is more sweet and corny. YUK

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale golden color out of the bottle with a one finger fizzy white head that quickly dissappeared. Not much of a nose. Some malty sweetness with a faint citrus finish. Not much going on here, but not all that bad.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yellow color with a low sticky head. Some malt up front, honey-ish, low bitter. Thin and weak. Not as bad as I expected, but that doesn’t say much - I was prepared for the worse.
