Had in Beijing.
330ml bottle poured into a pint glass.
Born on date: 9/11/12.
ABV: 4.5%
Ingredients list water, barley, corn, hops.

A- Not much to look at. Pale yellow with moderate carbonation.

S- Corn. Wet wood.

T- More corn. Surprisingly, an enjoyable bit of spice hits the tongue. A little woodiness and finishes bitter.

M- Good body, for what it is. Not as thin as most Asian adjunct lagers.

A little more flavor than some adjunct lagers, but nothing too exciting.

Tiger Beer is perfect for serving after hours in a Chinese food restaurant because it resembles apple juice. A minute and a half after pouring, it has no head, no lace and not a bubble in sight. An extra large apple juice container of TB in a cooler of ice at the beach would keep you feeling refreshed. Don't forget the sippy cups and small children to make it more convincing, but keep a close eye on the little ones as they may try to drink out of your sippy cup (which is actually their sippy cup). If you like, cut off the tips of the nipples on plastic baby bottles so its easy to squeeze out & suck back.

The aroma reminds me of corn bread as well as an Avon perfume i had when i was a girl. The taste is bitter sweet, but not in that order. My mouth feels mad and wants it mixed with ginger ale to give some fizzyness & flavor.

I love the Detroit Tigers, still like Tiger Woods, swear by Tiger Brand underwear, used to love Tiger Beat Magazine and Tigger from Winnie the Pooh, but can't say i'm too fond of Tiger Beer. Lets call this one "A. J. 5%"

Appearance: bright clear yellow lager body with a nice white head that leaves some lacing on the glass. A good looking lager.

Aroma: typical lager, crisp, clean, white bread,

Flavors: typical lager, maybe a light German lager; this one has a clean buttered white bread taste; other than that – non-descript mild hop and malts;

Mouthfeel: decent carbonation, crisp, clean, refreshing, no flavors stand out, no aftertaste – your typical Bud or Miller drinker would be thinking they are drinking the best beer in the World.

To the Point: I do like this lager; it is like I said ‘crisp, clean, and refreshing’; a very good beer for playing yard games or other summer activities; Detroit Tiger Fans should give this a try

This beer is not terrible. It's deep gold with a small head but a nice lace on the glass. The smell is malty and sweet, clean and crisp, with noticeable alcohol... just not that outstanding. Taste is not that strong. What's there is ok, some malt bitterness toward the end with a sweeter herbal taste at first. Way too carbonated, so much that it takes away from the taste. That's the biggest flaw I see. This beer is ok, worth drinking if it's in front of you.

A: Pours a light golden color with a decnet head that fades to bits of lacing.

S: Aroma of mild citrus, malt sweetness and a bit of grain.

T: Taste a bit of citrus with a malt sweetness and trace of grain in the background. Mild bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Light body, crisp, smooth and refreshing.

O: This is a good beer for the tropical climate and goes very well with the many asian cusines available in Singapore.

Single can bought on a whim at my beer store looking for some more exotic tastes. I'll say, the smell when I opened it informed me right away that I wasn't going to have a good time here.

It pours a not-so-pale yellow colour into my gleaming big rock mug with just shy of two fingers' worth of head on top which dissipates a little more slowly than your typical big brew. Back to the smell; the smell reminds me of any number of value beers I've had over the years with a few defining characteristics:

1) overly sweet smell
2) extreme presence of adjuncts
3) sour as fuck. like, really sour.

I can't say I was expecting much from a macro Asian lager, but I haven't even tasted it. The taste, on first sip, made me just exclaim loudly "holy fuck there is so much rice". To be honest, I totally understand why Asian macros use rice extensively - rice is very plentiful and inexpensive - perfect for making beer with. The problem with this is that many brewers use far too much, and it makes the beer taste weird as anything; it is a taste that I find difficult to swallow. It's very sour to the point that I don't want to take another sip. i'll give it this though - it's got one of the cleanest aftertastes of any bad adjunct lager I've ever had.

This is my first drain pour after 30-some reviews. It's just... it's just not good.
