Bottle. Pours golden, with porous but short-living head. Faint aroma of hops and malt on the nose, and those with some yeast on the palate. Unremarkable beer. heavy (2817) - Split, CROATIA - OCT 1, 2008
0.33 l bottle from a store in Tirane, Albania, if I remember well. Poured pale golden body with medium sized head that went down soon. Very weak aroma, only some stale malts. Flavor is interesting though, a bit sweetish malty with hay and some fruits if you extend your imagination. Interesting, but I still didn’t like it so much. Even more strange were the notes of belgian ale yeast in its finish. OK and pretty pleasant, but no better than average pale lager. Marko (5711) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 1, 2008

Poured a yellow body with a medium sized white head that went away fast. The nose wasn’t impressive, odd malt and honey, a bit alcohol. The taste is malty as well I guess, notes of hay and wood, some soapy fruity sweetness. Better than expected by being passable. Still, nothing special.
I was actually surprised by this beer. Poured with a clear orange color, and had a slightly fruity taste with a light white thin head. I enjoyed this beer, considering the low expectation i had for it. Cheers to Singapore! Slipstream (2626) - USA - SEP 22, 2008
So Heineken has something to do with this. It seems like a lot of leading Asian brews are owned or co-brewed by a leading European company. This has an inoffensive aroma. Taste is pretty insipid dry lager with a touch of Central European hops. Light and smooth, with a little more alcohol than expected. Tiger is a fairly typical Asian pale lager - not bad, just bland.

Sullying the good name of Tigers everywhere. Bottle, waiting for an Indian takeaway. Little dry and bitter in the finish which adds to the unpleasantness. Metal, cardboard etc. Didn’t like it. KimJohansen (10492) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2008
Clear golden with tiny white head. Sweet malty aroma with malty and caramel notes. Flavour likewise with hints of cardboard. Sweet finish. KiwiJonno (76) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 14, 2008
I really didn’t enjoy this beer at all. Maybe it was because I’d been drinking much better beers earlier in the night or maybe because its expensive for what you get, Im not sure. Typical Pale yellow beer, very thin lager. Actually has some bitterness in the finish, which was rather unpleasant. Clean tasting but thats about it. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2008
(Bottle) Pours a yellow color with a small white head. Light aroma of biscuit, hops, and grains. Taste is rather dry, and includes a surprising amount of crisp hops. Some pepper is mixed in with the grain, as is a stale, sweet bread note. A little more character than most pale lagers, but still forgettable. larsga (7539) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2008
Biggish white head with some bigger bubbles. Yellow body with carbonation. Rubbery grainy aroma with mealy sugary notes. Dry-acidic unclean grainy sugary taste with rubbery notes. Dry papery maize aftertaste lingers. This was unpleasant. Didn’t finish it. (0.33l bottle, Wine Monopoly.)
