Singha - Thailand 10-3-11

The Low Down:
This is the first beer on this mighty adventure, and it brings back great memories of travels and adventures with friends.
Singha Premium Import Lager Beer "The original Thai Beer since 1933"
This beer is a compliment to Thailand, spicy food and summer delight. What it lacks in the complexity and flavour compared to some of its European cousins, it makes up for in refreshment, and Asian beers must be refreshing.

A little too carbonated, with a slightly bitter aftertaste, but quite thirst quenching and refreshing at the same time.




Packaging: 7/10
elegant white and gold label on a brown glass bottle (bonus points for the "by royal permission").
Refreshment: 8/10
Light crisp and cold, how an Asian beer should be.
Flavour 4/10:
nothing special here, but it doesn't taste like ass. Bonus.
Alcohol Content: 5/10
5%, not unrespectable.
Price: 8/10
At 3.50 for an import, its very respectable, buy it in Thailand for around 25 baht( <$AU1) and its incredible value.
Total: 33/50
Conclusion: serve it with something spicy on a hot day. drink it quick don't let it get warm, and you are onto a winner.
Cheers
