2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2004 Mandarin restaurant... well nothing better to accompany a buffet of mass produced chinese food than this doughy drink. Not skunky, bt very metallic. A pinch of sweetness. It’s close, but no cigar... unless you’re eating at the mandarin of course!

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Pale straw color with a very thin white head. Faint malt aroma with a hint of hops, corn and biscuit. Malty and sweet taste at first that disappears quickly and leaves a slightly sweet aftertaste. Thin and watery and very carbonated.

Another SIL. Couldn’t find any tiger taste at all. Less hoppy and more malty than the usual pilses around me

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Straw yellow, no head, fizzy carbonation. Light herb nose. Not as bad as expected - yes, nowadays I give credits for this. Light parfume, grass taste.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Light yellow and fizzy lager. Not much flavor or aroma to speak of. You can smell some corn. It reminds me of Miller products: BAD, BAD, BAD, BAD, BAD!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow color, little white head. Mildly hoppy aroma with notes of grass. Malty flavor with grassy and somehow hoppy ending. Little bit of skunky aftertaste. Mildly flavored overall, strong carbonation makes this to be crispy experience.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale gold in colour. Aroma was almost none existent with just very small amount of grassy hops. Flavour was weak, watery, some sweetness. Very bland light body. Finishes watery and boring.

The label is full of medals won over the years which is usually a warning sign. The second warning was the fact that it is owned by Heineken.So what you get is a bland lager that could have been brewed anywere in the world.If anything should serve as a warning against globalisation this is it.
