This beer already has a special meaning for me. The name… it's all in the name. I am Tiger Woods's biggest fan, and a beer called Tiger has to be good! Actually, based no reviews of this beer, it isn't good. But they use rice, so I have some high hopes going in. I did watch a Greg's beer review, and he didn't care for it. Let's see if our palates match. Regardless of the quality here, there is a lot of history behind this beer and this brewing company. So even if the beer sucks, I am glad that it was on the list and I am glad that we were able to review it. Bottoms up!

In the Glass: This looks like any other domestic beer in the glass. It pours like water, and while it produces a decent white head, it just sits there and looks like a Coors Light. I keep going back to the rice they use in the brewing process. I hope that mellows out the flavor and this produces a decent experience. The bros on BeerAdvocate didn't like it… so I hope I can at least stomach half a bottle.

Nose: This smells a lot better than a domestic. It has a nice, subtly sweet aroma to it. I am not going to write home about the aroma, but it is better than I expected. This beer is very popular in Singapore. Either there is something hidden in that glass, or people in Singapore don't understand craft beer. Let's see what this tastes like.

Flavor: It is better than I expected, but not much. It has hints of sweetness (coming from the rice) toward the back of the palate, but it is VERY easy drinking and goes down smooth. Considering the expectations and the experience I have had thus far, the flavor and aftertaste are decent, but this is a basic, boring adjunct lager.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel isn't horrible. It has some bubbles toward the front of the palate, and as you swallow the mouthfeel turns big, thick, and heavy. As you swallow, it goes down smooth but the thickness that you experience toward the back of your palate sticks around for a little bit.

Aftertaste: As the beer lingers on your tongue, the aftertaste is somewhat sweet and dry. I like a good dry finish, especially when drinking beer with food. I would want to pair this with Chinese food, or something spicy like Thai or Indian food. The next time I eat out, I might grab a bottle of this. If available, that is.

I am not blown away by Tiger Beer, but I am not as upset as I expected to be when we started reviewing this lager. It's clean, simple, and boring… but it's not terrible. I wouldn't seek this out again unless food was involved.
