Notes / Commercial Description:
Tiger was born on the hot streets of Singapore – the tropical island city state – a busy trading destination and melting pot of Asian, Indian, and British influences and culture. The ‘tropical lagering’ process brews a bravely creative and unpretentious lager. The result is the intensely refreshing, full-bodied taste of one of the world’s fastest growing premium beers.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from 330ml bottle into glass. Label is stamped 'BBD NOV2018'.
Clear pale gold colored body. Small white head dissipates to scattered islands fed by rising bubbles. Just a few spots of lacing.
Aroma is lightly bready, sweet, corn. Some floral hops.
Taste is bready cardboard, with corn sweetness and slight yeast esters.
Light mouth feel and easy to drink. Good carbonation.
I can see this designed as an easy to drink lager to be consumed in a hot, humid climate while eating hot, spicy foods. Not a beer to be experienced in the same way as a multi layered craft lager. This beer has a pedestrian purpose and does it well.

From a 330ml bottle dated best by November 2018. Pours clear yellow with a half finger of white head. Medium feel. Tastes of grass and floral hops. Compared to all beers, this is mediocre. Compared to lagers from Southeast Asia, this is pretty good. All depends on your frame of reference.

I like this beer a lot. After becoming a fan of stouts, there is initially a feeling that this is sort of tasteless. But it grows on you. Imagine the climate of South-east Asia, and it becomes easier to appreciate something this drinkable. It seems that it could be great to pair with spicy foods (in fact I think I once had one of these with a pad thai dish, and enjoyed it). It's certainly not the most interesting, but solid I think. Beautiful color that stays bubbly from the bottom in a glass; beautiful packaging.

This beer is very easy drinking, it look is a standard light golden color with a good amount of carbonation, It has a typical white foamy head that sticks around a while in a pilsner glass. There is some lacing left on the glass. Overall an enjoyable beer that you can enjoy on a hot day.

Everything except the taste is just fine. The taste is really quite too sweet, and is hard to get past. It's not the worst beer to drink with spicy-sweet food (I had it with nasi goreng), but by itself I don't think it would be enjoyable.

Fantastically drinkable, if lacking in full body. I would drink this in the summer, which makes sense given the hot and humid climate of Singapore.

First had this beer there and in Malaysia, and I will likely always drink it over a domestic lager when available.

Poured from a can into a plastic cup resulting in little head and little bubbles. Light amberish-yellow in color but that was probably the low light conditions. Aroma was of faint grass and corn. Taste was mostly whole wheat bread. Mouthfeel was very light and dry.

I had three of these in lieu of the in flight meal on the way home. I think it was a decent compromise.

Smell is nearly non-existent, and the mouthfeel light and drinkable. Otherwise the taste is as one would expect, with a rock-solid bitter malty aftertaste.

This is boring and inoffensive, in the best possible way - for budget-bin pricing that is.

From the 16 oz. can with an expiration date of Mar 2018. Sampled January 28, 2018.

The pour is a tremendously heady straw yellow with active carbonation and good clarity.

The aroma is a typical pale lager with toasted bread, sweetness, and corn. Maybe a hint of lemon zest. Grassy hops.

The mouthfeel is light to medium but it is refreshing.

The taste has a clean, crisp, and bready sweetness to it, corn and a mild, dry finish.

Nothing spectacular as far as craft beer goes - but a straight forward flavorful pale lager that is easy to drink.

I feel that many AAL does not get much justice as a beer style. Many of us started with AAL's early in our beer hobbies. I want to give this style of beer a type of justice. Poured into a pint glass at 35 degrees. The appearance of the beer is SRM 3, typical for this style. The bright white head is a frothy, creamy, and airy with poor retention. The body of the beer is lively with carbonation.

The initial aroma of the beer is grain, light DMS, floral, and crackers. Additional aromas are grassy, yeast, a touch of green apples, and floral.

The flavors in the beer are grain, light DMS, floral, crackers, medium floral note, green apples, grassy, yeast and a light phenolic.

The mouthfeel of the beer is airy with a medium dryness. The body of the beer is light, high carbonation, and a light finish.

The beer leans toward a hybrid of an amber ale and AAL. The phenolic taste in the beer is off-putting, but the beer is an average for its style. I would drink this over a few American AAL's.
