2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The usual pale gold bubbly color you come to expect from these pale lager imports, short head filled with various sized bubbles, no lacing. Aroma is sweet and thin. Granular sugar sweetness with hints of green apple. So, hereís a beer from Singapore - thatís the most exciting part of it.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours pale yellow with a thin white head. Sweet corn aroma. The flavour is more corn, some bittering hops. Thin watery palate. Not really that good.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle (From Sainsburys, BBE Sep 06). No head - industrial cider look-a-like. Fruity funky high alcohol, green apple aromas. Sweet smelling. Sweet and yet at the same time thin body which draws attention to the over sweetness in a way a richer body would not. Unenjoyable.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2006 Another bitter and sweet at the same time beer. It is nice, but a little tiring, not for a prty or a drinking session.

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.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
