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.

Clear golden body, fine, delicate white head, plenty of coarse bubbles rising quickly. Nose is a bit soapy, with toasted malt underneath. The soapiness continues onto the taste, but is joined by a mix of grains: wheat, rice, barley, and something with a mild spiciness resembling rye, which is quite enjoyable. Clean, crisp finish that somewhat lingers, a mixture of enjoyable maltiness and distasteful soap. Body is superbly drinkable, light-medium weight with eager, coarse but smooth carbonation.
For what it is, it's great. The soapiness remained only a mild off-flavor throughout, and the bit of spice was an unexpected bonus to what would otherwise be a solid piss beer.

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