0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Only ever had this from a can or a bottle—cans off supermarket shelves in Bangkok and a bottle at the Smile Bar in Nong Khai, Thailand, just across the border from Laos. Therefore, I can’t say much about the head or appearance of this beer. (Oh, hold on. Ok, I just poured some out on the ground, and we’re getting a ... yeah, that’s watery-piss yellow. Pours watery-piss yellow.)
And smells like... Dog food! Wow. It smells more like dog food than Purina One. No shit. I’m giving this a 1 for smelling like dog food. Beer should not smell like dog food.
After having loads of Chang and Leo for weeks, the taste of Tiger is refreshingly different. It almost tastes (I shit you not) chocolatey. However. I will stop there. Compared to the gorgeous array of microbrews I had been recently enjoying back in the USA, Tiger, is, of course, pure shite.
Not bad for some cheap sessioning though.

Somewhat fuller and maltier/sweeter than other commecial type lagers this isn’t unpleasant but I can imagine that it might get cloying on a session. Easy drinking though, and enjoyable.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a pale straw with one finger of loose white head diminishing rapidly to nothing, no lacing. Nose is typical adjunct lager, pale malt rice, corn, maybe a little apple. Taste follows suit, with very faint hops on the finish. Light body, moderate sustained carbonation, and a fairly abrupt dry finish.
Well, I’ve had worse - a lot worse. (I’m looking at you, PBR!) But to be honest, after an afternoon digging holes in the back yard and filling them back in, it does the job. Aside from crappy adjuncts, there are no off flavours, and the finish is actually not unpleasant.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bardzo jasny kolor. Nie do końca klarowne, bardzo małe drobiny unoszą się w piwie. Smak wadliwy, chemiczny, zapach podobnie.

Bottle. Aromat piwnicy, chemiczne spory. Kolor i piana bardzo dobre. W smaku gorzej, czuć wady straszne i ciężko pic.

Little to note in truth. An OK lager, but nothing to distinguish it from a million others.
