3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Classic south-east asian lager, with a lovely pale straw colour. As with any good SEA brew, very refreshing when ice cold. Perhaps a bit lacking in depth or substance.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale gold clear under a small white short lasting head. Faint hop and hint of a sticky tropical fruiy aroma. When it warms up a little and glass is swirled a short burst of fruity nectar honey and plasticene aroma appears. Light body with a touch more bitter than the usual low end Lagers. The middle has a very short sweet quickly fading to bland something I can’t quite put my finger on flavour. Finish is mainly dry and faintly fruity I started out only rating this to add another country to my collection but it’sactually quiet reasonable in comparison to many of its cousins.

It was a very hot un-airconditioned bar in England August 17th, and this beer quenched my thirst. Beyond that I don’t remember much about the beer!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fair amount of body for a lager, malt flavour present, great thirst quencher in the heat.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A lager with a fairly frothy head and good carbonation. The beer is pleasant, but the overall effect is spoilt by a dusty aroma.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
7/20/02: I hadn’t had this beer in some time, and I don’t think I’ve ever had it when not eating an Asian meal somewhere. Malt is an undercurrent in aroma, body, chief flavor characteristics and the finish. Hops are prominent enough and produce a citrusy tang in the finish. This has more body than many lagers. Tiger’s main problem is a lack of complexity---the aroma, body, flavor and aftertaste are all essentially the same. In sum, this beer is not exciting but acceptable, and tastes a lot better with Thai or Indian food than as part of a ’session’ line-up.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yellow, generic looking. Nose is almost non-existent, with slight malt. Taste is quite hoppy though. Actually sharp and bitter. Much better than I expected.

Not too bad. A typical Asian lager, on the malty side. Soft carbonation. More like a pilsener.

Pale golden colour. A bit drier and crisper than your typical tropical lager.
