From a can bought at my corner convenience store here in Bangkok.
Pours a white fluffy head over a golden-clear body. Bubbles drift upward, but the head soon recedes leaving no lace whatsoever. Aroma is of light malt and grain mixing with mild lemony hops. Taste is mildly sweet malt backed by a more assertive hop bitterness (but with little other hop flavor). Also has a lingering acrid character that seriously detracts. Medium body with at crisp drying finish.
The classic Thai beer despite the recent upsurge of Chang. The name and mascot pictured on the label-- the Singha-- is a mythical lion believed to inhabit the forest surrounding the home of the gods, Mt. Meru. It is often served with ice at bars and restaurants, contributing a-- you guessed it-- significantly more watery taste. However the ice is often necessary to keep the temp down when drinking outside and helps to cover up some of the less desirable flavors-- fine, all flavor. All the same I prefer mine without ice. Decent as far as macro lagers go.

11.2 ounce bottle with a fill date of 3/4/14 and an exp. date of 3/4/15.
A: Pours a clear pale yellow with a solid 1-finger thick white head which fades slowly and yields some clumpy lace.
N: Yeasty and lemony, herbal and grassy, mildly sweet malts for balance and a touch of wheat.
T: Clean, light yeast, earthy, grainy, faint lemon zest.
M: Light body and medium carbonation. Crisp, mildly dry finish.
O: Refreshingly simple. The understated clean taste really is nice.

This poured a light amber gold with a fat creamy head of white foam. Clear and had bubbles rising to the top. Lovely presentation. You could call it glorious. The nose is sweetened grain. it has a richness on the nose that is deep. A slight hop herbal grass to sweeten it. It drinks well. Hearty grain, dry and robust with plenty of depth and the hops are accents. They add some sweet herbal grass to the palate for definition and depth. The beer has a medium mouthfeel and is not shy. I would call it forcefull in it's malt stature. The malt is the drink. It's pleasing and leaves with a slight bit of dryness and maybe an earthiness that you could call bitter. This was made by a thai brewer who got his training in Germany and it's evdent in this beer. Tall golden liquid grain with a an enthusiastic and crisp presence.
