3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 mL can. A great refreshing summer beer. Very simple and smooth. Smells a little sour or lemony but then has no bitter after taste you would expect. Not much hops but very light malty taste, clean finish. Not the tastiest lager out there, but very smooth.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Just another crappy tropical asian lager. The adjunct (maize) is quite obvious, and the alcohol is blaringly so for something that is only 5% abv. The carbonation is shallow and a bit biting and once it subsides you get a quick burst of metallic bitter twang. Not quite as cloyingly sweet as some others, but after one of these I’m calling for a cleansing ale. Bring on some LCPA.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a clear bubbly pale yellow with a thin amount of froathy white head. Aroma is a bit grassy and corny and a tad sweet. Flavor is slighty honey sweet and then typical pale lager touch of hops. Overall, average.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale gold body with a minimal white head that diminishes quickly. Corn and honey aroma, nothing that great about it. Very malty body, too little in the way of hops... highly overbalanced. Dry ending.

Abit more hops would help this one, quite malty, drinkable if its hot, but I’d otherwise pass.

33 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Clear golden colour with a weak head. Light aroma of hops and notes of malt. Malty flavour with a touch of hops. Very average for a pale lager, someway dull.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale yellow lager that tastes like every other pale lager you could drink. It’s refreshing on a hot summer day, but it’s still nothing special.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From bottle in Bangalore, India. A drinkable beer from Singapore. Actually not a half-bad maltiness, which is very usual for beers coming from Southeast Asia. Some OK noble hop flavor coming through. Simple, clean beer. Nothing bad, nothing especially good. No real reason to drink it outside of Asia and nothing else is available. Ok.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A refreshing mid-end lager without much going on. Sampled straight from the bottle, so no idea what it looks like, but it wasn’t overly carbonated and had a light mouthfeel. Overalll malty flavor with very little hopping. This was the first beer in which I could detect a light metallic aftertaste in the flavor. Nothing special, but not bad.

The gold medal says it all, not every beer can boast to having won the beer world cup as Tiger did in 2004 and also in the lager category for bottled and canned lagers it is brewed under licence in many places but the best to my taste is the ones brewed in KL Malysia
