Purchased a four pack of 16 ounce cans for $5.99 at my local discount store. Chilled for a couple of hours before trying. The beer poured light yellow with little or no foam. The aroma was faint but because of it being canned was not skunked at all. It didn't have much of a taste really but it went okay with some eel rolls. The mouth feel was watery but refreshing. Over all not bad. Along the same lines as some Korean beer I had tried. Might not be great and beer snobs will balk but I would reach for one in the cooler over Bud products for sure.

Although nicely chilled when poured almost no head appeared or negligible foam. Just sharp acidic n crisp taste. A typical generic beer you will find in South East Asia so nothing to rave or shout about, in fact I'll skip this beer anyday over a can of coke if that's the only choices present. Nothing compared to the belgian, germanic or english ales you'll encounter in europe. I still don't understand why it's still so popular in South East Asia. 1 word describes it for me "Yurrrgh"

I don't know why everyone else is giving this beer such a poor rating. I'm stuck in Korea and I found this one at the grocery store. I've heard of it but never had a chance to try it until now. It's got a heavy malt character. It is lacking the hop bitterness that I taste with any other beer. It seems to be retaining a thick sliver of head very easily. Maybe its just that all the other beer in Korea is sub-par and Tiger seems that much better when compared to the local swill. Either way when I'm looking for a beer that tastes good and isn't overly priced (Budweiser here costs $4 a can) I'll pick it up and enjoy!

Clear gold with a modest head. No real nose. Grain taste, light body. Basic lager. Have it for the tick only, not at all special otherwise.

I just tried this beer in Wilmington, NC today. I was having spicy Asian food so this beer did wonders for cleaning my palate and providing a relief, albeit temporary, to the heat of the food. This is a beer with a pale gold color and a white head. I did notice that the head broke down to not much lacing. The taste is sweet malt with some graininess and a little bitterness at the end. This beer is not great but not terrible. For the price and for the overall experience it is worth a try.

This is a beer that is all about where you are drinking it. Had multiple times on a recent vacation to Vietnam. This is a composite of my impressions.

Served cold from a bottle into a rather small glass kind of like a water glass. This seems the common glass given.

Pale gold with a white head. Head fills much of the glass but dissipates to scant lacing.

Not much smell.

Taste is sweet malt with some graininess; not too strong. Not much hop presence but not expecting this. A little bitterness at the end but not much. No skunkiness or other bad aftertastes

Less carbonated than I might expect but overall mouthfeel OK.

This is a beer that is just right for drinking in Vietnam and all of SE Asia. Refreshing when served cold, goes well with the food and with the stifling heat of July in Hanoi. Better than most of the other options and can often be purchased for under $1 (US). Will I drink this or search for it here in the USA? No. But I will buy it again the next time I am traveling in SE Asia...at least until the beer options get much better there than they currently are.

Had a bottle with dinner at a sushi place earlier and it poured clear yellow color with an average sized white head that faded quickly and left basically zero lacing. Pretty much what I expected.

Smelled like a typical mass produced lager with a corn, malt and caramel sweetness, some wet cardboard and faint hops. Muted and dull, I didn't expect much and didn't get much out of it.

Taste is basic with malt, bread crust, light caramel, grains and a sweetness that helps wash it down quickly while covering up the wet cardboard, grass and corn or vegetable husk.

Easy to drink with an average body, average carbonation that's on the crisp side with a malty sweetness that covers up the lack of hops and true flavor. Finishes clean and is pretty much average at best in every way. That being said, I'd have it again to wash down any Japanese or Asian meal.

Too be honest, I was expecting a lot, lot worse. Slight hint of amber flavor, think of this as an Asian knock off of a Budweiser l, a lot better than the garbage I've had in green bottles
