Wow, @Mpontiakos - this was a horrible recommendation. Completely out of character for you.

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.

pours medium yellow, somewhat like urine when dehydrated. very skunky smell with not the faintest hint of typical beer aromas. tastes of alcohol, and not much else - lots of glycerine and clashing sour and sweet tones. Foul aftertaste, and unpleasant reminders for hours after drinking thanks to the "flavours" reappearing in burps. I wouldn't drink this at gunpoint - ok maybe I would, but only if on tap and very very cold.

I did it for a tick. Needed Singapore under my belt........ Looked very nice actually until the head recessed. Big, BIG corn smell. Like sweet corn. Like sweet, cream corn. Not a good smell from a beer. Tastes like unsweetened corn flakes. Again, not a desirable characteristic IMO.
