Very quaffable lager carbonation upfront but not overpowering. Exceptionally refreshing and the 5% abv is somewhat a mellow creeper on the noggin. Very good clean slightly sweet taste

12 ounce bottle into mug glass at Basil Leaf Thai Sushi in High Point. Pours crystal clear pale golden straw color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with amazing retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing on the glass, and a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas and flavors of lemon, cracker, bread dough, herbal, floral, wood, grass, pepper. Some fruity dms corn aromas as expected, but not too overwhelming. Light-medium herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Med high carb and light-med body. Bready grainy malts and some sticky hops. Fairly crisp, clean, refreshing finish. Fairly clean on lager flavors in the taste. Flavorful and not watery for the ABV. A well made macro feeling Thai lager. Not too heavy feeling on adjuncts.

A refreshing beer with good carbonation perfect for a summer's day or when you just want a light beer. It doesn't taste a lot initially, but is well-balanced with a good bitterness coming after a few seconds.

Nothing that will blow your mind, but as a light, refreshing beer with good bitterness in the after-taste. Hey! Hand me 3! Reminds me of a Swedish beer called Cirrus, albeit, Cirrus is a bit better.

From a glass bottle. Clear golden color with 1/4" of white foam. Sweet grain smell. Fairly light body. Light grain flavors with a touch of floral hops on the finish. Would likely go well with food.

Straw yellow with a very thin white head. Corn and malt aroma.
Sweet grain malt all the way with a hint of floral and herbaceous hops. Slight taste of lemon..Only slightly bitter, but does the job of cleansing the palate between multiple spicy entrees at a Thai restaurant. A basic lager, but not bad. Recommended.

Singha pours into a pilsner glass a golden straw color with a thin head and light carbonation. Smells light grain. Tastes smooth, like cereal grains. It's smooth enough and easy drinking. Overall a fair lager beer better cold, cold, cold.

Another beer I bought just to get one more country rated! Pleasant aroma when you open the bottle, hardly any aroma in the glass. Very light colour. Flavour is not unpleasant, actually there is hardly any flavour at all. Aftertaste? What aftertaste? (Well, I had this beer with a fairly spicy pizza, but still...) With 6% alcohol and little or no taste, it's probably an OK beer if your intention is to get pissed as fast as possible in the Thailand heat. Down there I guess it will cost you something like 20 cents a bottle - buying it anywhere else is ridiculous.

Crystals clear pour, minimal foam. Slightly musty aroma, but muted. Crisp, with not much on the sip.
Pairs nicely with (what else) Thai food, innocuous enough to go down easily.

L: Pours a golden color, a little darker yellow than a lot of beers of this style, with a two-finger white head that leaves the glass quickly.
S: Smells of sweet-grain malt, corn, surprisingly a somewhat boozy alcohol aroma is present too.
T: Taste follows the nose, you can taste just the right amount of hoppy bitterness at the end that balances out nicely with the malts.
F: Light-bodied, high carbonation, crisp, smooth, crushable.
O: Pretty typical lager, well worth the try though.

A - Bright pale gold color with moderate to heavy sprightly carbonation, nice bright white creamy head resting on top.

S - Grassy earth aroma with some cracker crisp sweetness and dry hay on the nose.

T - Sweet grainy malt base with light caramel lingering on the pallet from start to finish. Light earthy citrus spice over top and ends on the sweeter side for the finish.

M - Heavy body for a Pilsner with prickly carbonation on the tongue that gives way to a soft finish.

O - Too thick for the style and not enough hop presence to offset the sweet grainy malt base.

330ml bottle. Fill date 24/02/2020, best before 24/02/2021. Poured into a tulip.
Look: Light gold, about 2-3cm of fluffy white head. Retention is pretty good. Looks alright.
Smell: Sweet, malt and some graininess. A little bit of herbal grassy hop at the end.
Taste: Pretty nondescript. Some honey malt and cereal grain. A little bit herbal towards the end, but not much happening.
Feel: Light bodied, tingly carbonation, a rounding bitterness and a dry finish.
Overall: Solid for a generic macro lager.

Ordered at Thai restaurant. Bottle opened smells a bit adjunct with some malt. Pours to a bright yellow with a creamy head. Taste is slightly biter with nice carbonation and mouthfeel. Basic but sufficient.

Look: Nearly clear yellow with a luscious pure white head that pillows up and holds well, leaving decent lacing as it recedes
Aroma: Grains, some floral hop notes, bready malt – somewhat cracker-like, and some grassy notes
Taste: Cracker-like malt, grains, and floral hop notes send this one off along with an herbaceous note, almost tea-like that dominates the middle and that I wasn’t detecting in the nose. Finishes crisp and clean with grainy notes
Mouthfeel: Light but full, high carbonation, and quite clean and crisp throughout
Overall: Solid and a pleasant surprise here. Having never had this beer and given it was sitting at room temp, I wasn’t expecting much but this has good flavor, doesn’t taste like it’s heavy on adjuncts, and is quite refreshing. I’m curious if they use rice in this because as it warmed, some of the grains and that herbaceous note started reminding me more of steeped rice or the smell of any excess rice water post-cooking. I’d drink this again, especially alongside some great Thai food

Ok then... Like my plan b prom date that I procured at the last second, this one is surprising. I mean, lets just get to the damn point: son of a gun looks good, smells half decent, and it tastes pretty damn good too. So like Grizelda my date that night, well, let’s just say that i went to sleep satisfied.

11.2oz bottle "FILL JOHYOF EXP JOHYOG" whatever that means. Poured into a tall pilsner glass at fridge temp 5% ABV. The beer pours bright light golden yellow in color with off white head. The head recedes to a thin ring and cap. Minimal lacing. The aroma is yeasty with a hint of grain. The taste is semisweet thin tasting malt with a distinct funky tang on the back end that tastes like stagnant water. Minimal bitterness. The mouthfeel is thin bodied with average carbonation and a mostly dry finish. Overall, poor. This was new to the store, but could old as can be. Would not drink again without a clear date.
