1.87/5  rDev -30.5%
look: 2 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 1.75

Light straw color with average activity. White 2 finger head lasting around 3 minutes with average legs.

Faint aromas and flavors of corn, grains, citrus, herbal spices. More sweet than bitter with an undertone of apples. Strong artificial sugary feel.

Light body with prickly carbonation. Faint and short finish ending with an faint herbal grassy feel.

Overall the Tiger beer is quite bland with a rather unpleasant adjunct taste and nose, while the freshness if relatively good while being overly accessible.

I did it for a tick. Needed Singapore under my belt........ Looked very nice actually until the head recessed. Big, BIG corn smell. Like sweet corn. Like sweet, cream corn. Not a good smell from a beer. Tastes like unsweetened corn flakes. Again, not a desirable characteristic IMO.

Out here on Roayan it makes for a crisp, refreshing brew, but nothing I'd buy again for how pricey it is out here on the island.

500ml.can.
Fizzy yellow-gold beer with a large sudsy head.
Medium+ body seems heavy for style despite ample carbonation.
Adjunct grain? ... grainy (and not just regular light malts) flavor. Hearty for style.

Not great, but not bad either, I like to sample the local brew wherever I go, this is good enough when I'm in SE Asia.

Purchased at the LCBO for just under $3.00 for a 500ml can. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a high white head that is gone in less than 1min. Clear light gold color.

S- Not a lot here. Had to strain to find anything

T- Not a good beer. A touch metallic and tinny. No hops and a bit of malt. Just a basic sugar beer

M- Dry and uninspired. Just a mass produced beer

O- Did not like this one. Just a mass produced beer that reminds me of a Bud

Food Pairing

This ok beer pairs well with...... Corn chip scoop with cole slaw, mayo, salt and pepper. Hot sauce then a slice of avocado and a small shrimp. Hit that with a drop of lime (citrus).

Enjoy

Poured from an 11.2 OZ bottle into a "Boulevard" Tulip glass.
Aroma- almost non-existent, barely has a beer odor
Appearance- this is a pale yellow color with a very weak head
Taste- Not how I remember "Tiger" from my military experiences overseas. This brew is extremely weak flavored and has a faint hops flavor
Feel- Highly carbonated, light bodied brew
Overall- a complete disappointment! I have had this overseas many times in the 90's and when I picked up a sixer of this I was hoping to relive some good times from years back. That is not the case, I am not sure if my palate has changed or the beer doesn't travel overseas very well when imported.

A better AAL than Bud, Miller, and Coors. Went nicely with some Thai food, but I doubt I will make the effort to have it again.

Experienced in : Singapore, Saigon
Appealing to me : - - -
Less appealing to me : seems a little overrated in terms of taste

I am neutral on this beer.

Bought this because I have not had it, not because I thought it was going to be an awesome beer......Well, not too shabby considering 1) it comes from Singapore, and 2) it is probably mass produced, and 3) it is probably cheaply made with cheap ingredients...This lager beats out the other foreign cheap ass lagers by quite a bit. Still have to deal with the malty, cereal, cheap flavor, but this one goes a bit above with a smooth mouth feel and drinkability that I did not expect. Don't get me wrong, this beer is on the bottom of most scales, but overall, a nice effort and much better than the Palma Loucas and Famousas of the beer world !!

Sampled this evening on 11/20/14 but had this once before over 2 years ago. Comes in a 330ml (11.2 ounce) bottle. Does have a nice looking label and metal cap. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a vintage 10 ounce 'hour glass' pilsner glass.

Brew pours a lighter to medium amber in color with a thin white cap with some light lacing seen. The aroma is of some sweet malt. Pretty much the same of the taste with what appears to be a light hint of apple also. Not real easy to drink as there is some bitterness for the finish. Strange taste also like it was made of stale grains. Lighter bodied with good carbonation. Not a fan of this brew and of this style much either.

Drank way too many gallons of Tiger in the then British Crown Colony of Singapore. Would love to try the export version; just for old times sake.

Very solid and delicious tasting lager. Tastes great alongside Vietnamese food, specifically vermicelli noodles and chicken. Nothing too spectacular, but it isn't nearly as bad as the rating state. Cheap and satisfying.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a thin, patchy white head that persists; light lacng. Classic adjunct aroma of light sweet malt, hints of apple and grassy hops. Flavor follows, light sweet malt with mild biscuit, light apple, a hint of butter; finishes with light biscuit and grassy hops. Light to medium bodied. One nice thing about adjunct lagers is that they are designed not to offend and this is a bland, but pleasant light lager with perhaps a bit more biscuit and light apple than is typical, to its benefit. Not sure why this rates at poor here, it seems to be right on the spot for style, perhaps a bit more character. If I was stuck in Singapore (not a hot bed of craft beer, I suspect), I would have no problem ordering this.

Tiger pours a light yellow with a massive head. This is a refreshing beer, enjoyable during the summer, and it's a beer that has a light taste, but still retains a flavor that ranks, for me, as a fine Asian brew, one that is much better than Sapporo or others on the market.
