2.35/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

330ml bottle poured into a pils glass with no detail about best before end.

A:
Very clear and bright pale yellow color, good white frothy head with average retention, it dissipates into a thin film with small lacing, moderate visible carbonation.

S:
Smell of sweet adjunct, grassy grain and husk.

T:
Very light taste containing grain, husk, sweet adjunct cereal and dull bitterness kick at the end.

M:
The body is light to medium with sharp crisp carbonation, smooth, dry and clean finish.

O:
Not a quite enjoyable drink just plain and not worth rebuying.

Felt kinda thirsty, so I decided to pick up a 6 pack just for the heck of it. Poured into a glass.

Appearance: Very clear, light golden yellow color, bright. Looks like piss after a long drinking session.
1 finger head which dissipates very quickly. Head is loose and looks soapy. Leaves no lacing on the glass. Moderate amount of carbonation visible.

Smell: Not much of an aroma, but definitely has a smell unlike some cheaper beers. Smells of straw and adjunct.

Taste: Tastes like carbonated water with alcohol and adjunct. Almost nothing. Not much of an aftertaste too.

Mouthfeel: Feels rather carbonated. Feels smooth yet crisp with a slightly acidic bite. Body is stuck between light and medium.

Overall: Not a nice beer. Save your money. You can get cheaper beers that taste better. It's cousin (regular tiger beer) doesn't taste that good, but is definitely better.
Not planning on picking up this beer anymore.
Only drink this when your supermarket only has this left.
Why did I buy a 6 pack?

330ml bottle in Ko Lanta, Thailand (35 Baht):
Light straw that makes it one of the lightest looking beers I've ever seen. It has a not bad, thumb-sized, white head that settles about just under half a centimetre tall.

Light citrus and some limes on the nose that make it seem a little like a bottle of Corona. There are a few basic adjuncts and some light malts along with a bit of hay and bread too.

Adjuncts with some light, lager malts with some lime and citrus but not a lot else. Quite an odd tasting beer that was pretty water too.

Light with touches of skunk and a hint of a citrus tang. The beer is quite watery and thin with a bit of bitterness but overall it was rather bland.

I was surprised by just how bland it was and how little it had going for it. It was far too thin and watery to enjoy and despite this still somehow managed to taste quite bad. Not a good beer at all.
