Singha, Thailand's Lion beer. All the major Thai beers have an animal as a signet; e.g. Chang is the Elephant, Archa is the Horse, Tiger beer is (no surprises) a Tiger. Singha however has an advantage over the other Thai macros in that it is brewed 100% barley malt - which as I will soon taste - makes for a better Lager.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a Carlsberg Lager tulip.

A: Presents a clear straw golden body with a white head that fizzles quickly down to a light dusting.

S: The malt is quite evident and upfront in the aroma, along with some faint grassy hops in the background. There is a note of honey sweetness as well. It does have a refreshing fragrance this Lager.

T: Begins with sweet honey and malt, then mid palate expresses a meaty malt base, with a long dry finish. Crisp, refreshing and a tad watery, as are most SE Asian beers, must be the heat or something [sarcasm intended]. There is an odd feeling on the tongue in the after-taste though, some slimy film coats the taste buds, weird huh?

M: Mid to light body, some slight wateriness with some sharp carbonation (a common Lager characteristic).

D: Apart from that after-taste this is one hard to fault Lager. It does have a bit less yeast and hops than a European Lager, which I personally prefer, but it's a bit of a subjective area when it comes to which beer suits which drinker. The price is right Larry, at around $13 to $16 per 6-pack depending where you get it. Overall a thirst slaking brew of affable character.

Food match: Thai, Vietnamese and Malaysian are sure-fire picks. Aside from that BBQ fare is also a great match. One could even see this brew working quite well with sushi.

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.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Undated bottle at about 40 degrees at Thai restaurant into small glass
Aroma of grain
Head average (about 2.5 cm), white, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to broken 2 mm ring
Lacing none
Body light yellow, clear, sparkling
Flavor begins with sweet graininess, short lasting. Some dimethylsulfide noticed; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate light, dry, soft carbonation

Not a bad beer with Thai food but I wouldn’t recommend it with much else.
