500 mL can from the LCBO; best before June 2012.
Pours a familiar pale golden-yellow colour, topped with one finger of fizzy white head that soon fizzes itself right out of existence. Its only remnants are a soapy film on the surface. Yup, it looks like an adjunct lager alright. It smells like one too, with a rather faint aroma of pale malts, corny sweetness and apple juice from concentrate.
The flavour is a step up but not a huge one; it is dominated by grainy pale malts with more corn husk. The saving grace of this beer is the existence of some herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Their presence is brief and doesn't linger, unlike the adjunct sweetness, which does linger as an aftertaste. Leaves a slick coating in the mouth. Thin-bodied and pretty watery, but easy to throw back. The carbonation is a little flat for the style; it's crisp for the first half of the glass, but gets increasingly flatter, cornier, and less appealing as I continue.
A decent light, moderately refreshing adjunct lager with a few less-than-crippling flaws. Drinkable, but other than that there is nothing noteworthy about this beer. Not really worth trying, unless you're a pale lager fan or you want to be able to say you've had beer from Singapore. I wouldn't turn this down, but I doubt I'd directly purchase it again... maybe on-tap.

11.2 fl oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on or freshness date present. My second of these odd Asian lagers, this one from Singapore, acquired as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's. Expectations are average based on the style.
Poured into a Stone Arrogant Bastard pint glass.
A - Pours the typical lager gold - maybe just a shade darker than some of the others with two fingers of foamy white head with less than impressive staying power. Hardly any lacing to speak of. Typical appearance.
S - Smell is of grain / corn, huskiness, and a sort of pilsner / adjunct maltiness. Not a whole lot to be said. I guess it sort of reminds me of a Miller Lite, albeit maybe a touch more husky.
T - Taste follows the nose - husky / earthy / grainy, sharply metallic, some might say slightly nutty and/or grapey.
M - Feel is crisp, mostly clean, with a bit of stickiness / graininess lingering on the palate. Sharp metallic bite on the end. Dry, grainy finish. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Easy drinking.
Overall, typical imported lager fare. Easy to drink, mildly inoffensive, low on flavor - I could definitely see it pairing well with some spicy Asian dish though. In that sense, I would have it again. I just tried Singha the other day also (a lager from Thailand) which I think I prefer just a bit more. This one is more metallic.

Poured golden clear body. No head whatsoever.
This beer was poured into a glass, but still smells somewhat metallic.
I wish I drank this beer straight out of the fridge, it was out of the fridge for about an hour before I had the chance to drink it.
Actually tastes slightly better than the smell. Mostly of light flavored malts, and what I imagine is just corn. And still a slight metallic taste
Mouthfeel is fine, again if it was colder it would have helped.
Overall, a beer I only got because it was a $2 16oz at the food spot I was at and I really wanted a beer.

Another day, another lager.
Pours a clear golden color. The head is average, white with medium retention.
There is the familiar malty aroma with grains.
As well as the sweet taste at the beginning, followed by grainy body, coming together with nice bittery finish.
Drinkable, light with enough bittereness to freshen you up. Thumbs up.
