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

Cant believe I haven't reviewed this one - I have drunk a lot of it on hot Singapore nights.
It's OK, It's OK, it's lager, but it also has a dull taste, so i dunno...
Good if it's cheap on a hot day....

Seemed to be the only beer I could get on tap in Singapore

A: Pale golden. Weak head

S: Not much to say. If there was a generic smell of beer, this would be it

T: More bitter than expected. Other than that, nothing stands out

M: Less watery than expected. Well carbonated

O: Not a bad summerbeer in a hot humid Singapore. But no big experience drinking it. You get pretty much what you expect from a adjunct

Had more than a few from taps in various pubs in Singapore. If you're drinking socially in Singapore, there's almost no chance of avoiding this "national" beer.
In a shade a touch darker than golden, the body of the beer is nice to look at through a glass. Pours with a foam that dissipates after a while.
No distinct smell to be derived from here. Perhaps just a sliver of biscuity note.
It tastes metallic. I can detect weak traces of malt, but the bad metallic taste overrides them most of them. It's bitter, in a bad way.
There is a quality of thickness for the mouth feel, but it doesn't do squat when the thickness is of metallic and ill-tasting nature.
Most mass produced, "national" beers are bad. This one is no exception. There is a trick to have a better time with this beer--drink it ice cold, like you would with bad-tasting macro beers, to mask its taste and to cool off in the curse that is permanent sweaty and sticky summer in Singapore.
