Enjoyed this one at first, but by the end I was done with it, literally and figuratively.

Pours out a super pale, almost clear, yellow. It's like adding a drop of yellow food coloring to a pint of water. The white head disappeared very quickly. Smelled lightly of corn, but it was very light. Not much in the taste. It's very smooth on the tongue. There might be a bit of a rice flavor in there. It wasn't bad at first. I was enjoying the smoothness of the feel and taste, but then as it warmed the alcohol became apparent and that ruined whatever enjoyment I'd found. Very thin mouthfeel. Except for the alcohol disturbance, this is averagely drinkable.

Enjoyed with a nice Thai meal; poured out of the bottle into a pint glass.

It pours a super clear light yellow with a small white head and vigorous carbonation. There's a Caro syrup smell all too reminiscent of an Icehouse Lager, with some clean pale malts and a hint of lemon. Tasting it, I get sweet malt, bland soggy grains, and as it warms up, an extremely bitter metallic taste on the back end. It's no wonder they served this in a frozen pint glass. Goes down fizzy with a watery, light body.

3.44/5  rDev +13.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Purchased at the LCBO for around $14.00 6pk of 330ml bottles. Served at 6deg C in a draught glass.

A- Ok. Opens well pours clear and light gold. Not much head after 10sec

S- Not much here at all

T- Ok at best. Lots of carbonation. Little aftertaste. Light on hops and malt. Light on taste.

M- Nothing special but ok. Lots of carbonation keeps this beer alive.

O- Feels like Thailand's Bud or Blue. Mass produced without a lot of character

Food Pairing

This light beer pairs well with anything you would like to have with a Bud.

Enjoy

Overall, a mild but pleasant beer. It reminded me of a Budweiser but with actual flavor and not watery. There's a nice, buttery like smoothness to this beer. And obviously it pairs well with spicy Thai food. The next time I'm at a Thai restaurant, I might have to get a bottle or two with my meal.

11.2 fl oz. bottle, with FILL 060313 EXP 060314 printed on the back label. I found this oddity at the local Binny's as part of a mixed six pack. "The original Thai beer since 1933". My first beer from Thailand. Expectations are average based on the style.

Poured into a miniature pint glass with Victorian carriage artwork.

A - Pours the typical clear lager gold yellow with lots of big carbonation bubbles floating topside. Three big fluffy fingers of bone white foam for a head. It's okay for what it is.

S - The smell is comprised of the usual grainy / corny / husky adjunct maltiness. Dusty, papery, and some artificial syrupy sort of sweetness in the background. Not an appealing aroma.

T - I guess the taste is the standard import lager fare - soggy grains, corn / huskiness, a bit of sweetness, and a sharp metallic bite on the finish.

M - The feel is crisp and clean, light sweetness / graininess lingering on the palate. Some might say it has a light bitterness to it on the finish, also. Light-bodied with good moderate carbonation.

Overall, it's the typical easy-drinking lager fare, similar to other imports I have had from India. I wouldn't seek it out again, but I would surely drink it if the occasion was right. Glad to have tried it, and I look forward to trying more of these strange import lagers.

Singha ---3/5.
