Bottle:
A nice clear yellow that has a hint of gold in it. Head lasts decently well as a white cap - a couple spots of lace.

Nose is not malty - maybe rice or corn, but has an okay grassy note to it.

Watery with a spritz of carbonation makes it highly drinkable but not necessarily refreshing. However, it is mostly devoid of flavor, making it inoffensive. Light rice notes, slightly dirty water, bland grass bitterness.

There's little to dislike here, but nothing to enjoy. Hard to rate an almost non-beer option.

-pale yellow bottle pour with scarce, fine visible carbonation. The aroma and flavor are grassy with light hop notes. The finish is dry and relatively clean.

It pours a pale yellow with plenty of carbonation in it. The smell is a little skunked but not to bad. The taste was better than expected after smelling it. It still has a bland taste but was still drinkable. Overall a ok beer just had to give it a try not one I expected to find in Mississippi.

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.
