330ml Can from a Cheers store in Chinatown, Singapore (SGD$2.40):
Light straw colour with a large, three-fingers tall head that is a foamy white and settles to a thick looking head.

Sweet with some corn and skunk plus a little bit of sugar, The beer is basically a watery one with a touch of bitter too.

Off-putting and quite plain to boot. The beer was a mix of water, corn, very cheap adjuncts and some grain too, all of this mixed together to make a really poor and disgusting beer.

Watery and light with only a little bitterness in there. Basically the beer was watery, too grainy and came with zero carbonation that led to a very flat beer.

Labelled as a "tropical beer" but being brewed in a tropical climate is the closest this one comes to matching that statement. This one is a really cheap and poor quality beer that was very plain, tasted disgusting and left a strange, unpleasant aftertaste that I couldn't wait to get rid of.

Poured at a good temperature with a huge, thick, off-white head that soon settled and good lace (suspicious of this as the beer has so little going for it), aroma is skunky and earthy even from a can. Color is a deep clear yellow. Flavor is first carbonic tang, then a little sweet, finally a little beer and not much else. Body gets much better as it warms. This is an odd duck as usually these low end tropical, world brews get so much worse as they warm, but this gets better. Finish is like flavor, not for people who're looking for especially pleasing beers - just more or less, brand x beer, drink it down whatever it is...
