This is a decent beer, but I really had to concentrate to find its flavor.
Even a lager should have a distinct flavor that you shouldn't have to strain to find.

Review: 330 ml Bottle of Singha Premium Import: ABV: 5%

The bottle top has Singha’s dragon logo which looks pretty cool and there is a yellow lion on the front of the bottle. We are also told that this is "The original Thai beer since 1933."

On pour we get a light gold looking beer, very clear, that produces a massive frothy white head which eventually flattens afterwards to die out. It is very fizzy and lively, a lot of carbonation.

No lacing but a perfectly clear looking beer...........

Has a very nice beery smell, faint but pleasant. Of grains, light malts and lager hops. Ok.......

The taste is a bit sweet at the start.......caramel and malt sweetness

Bitter after taste, which is a little strong, a little too hoppy

It is sessionable alright, but there really isn't a whole lot of good tastes in the beer

Could work as a session beer, but might get sickly after a while, can taste a bit like washing up liquid if you ask me......not a great beer overall.

It is ok but there is not much of anything here. More rice taste bt that is not always bad. It does have the charastics of a traditional pale ale.

Pours pale yellow. Lots of carbonation apparent. Not much aroma. Taste is generic pilsner, white bread with a grassy finish. No real off/skunky flavors. Light and drinkable, plenty of carbonation.
Overall: went well with Thai food and surpassed my low expectations.

I was in Thailand for 2 weeks. I tried about 4 different types of beer while there. I would say Singha was the best. I would rate this beer high for being in Thailand. Especially in the Thai heat it was light and refreshing. If I had it in the United States I wouldn't rank it as high I would probably give it a rating similar to a Coors light.

From Festival de las Naciones. In Teku glass. Watching Los Soprano 4x02. At first it seems pleasant, a bit above standard lagers, with a nice yet a bit alcoholic sweetness. But it goes up to the head pretty quickly, much more one than would expect from its only 5% ABV.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden color with a big head of fizzy white foam. The head has a moderate level of retention fading to leave tons of nice foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the brew is heaviest of a grainy and slightly bready smell mixed with some aromas of hay. Along with these smells comes some light grassy smells and a bit of caramel.

Taste- The taste begins with light bready taste mixed with a little bit of a caramel sweetness. The caramel sweetness grows stronger in nature as the taste advances with some light fruity tastes of apple and pear joining the taste as well. Upfront there is a little bit of a grassy and herbal which end up fading some as the taste advances, leaving one in the end with a clean bready taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the average to thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather normal. For the lighter bready and mild hop flavors of the brew the feel is rather nice and makes for an easy sipping beer.

Overall – OK and easy drinking for a pale lager, but nothing that is worth going out of your way for.

From a bottle labeled "Singha Premium Import", pours as a clear straw color with a thin quickly dissipating white head. Faint aroma of corn and grain. More malt than hops but both are subtle. General sweetness with some grain and moderate carbonation. Not much to recommend it, but inoffensive.
