Singha Premium Import
Brewed by Boon Rawd Brewery Co., Ltd
Style: Premium Lager
Singha is a 5% abv pale lager produced by the Boon Rawd Brewery in Bangkok, Thailand.
A popular beer in Thailand, brewed since the 1930’s, it has a big rivalry with Chang to see who has the number one spot in the country. Singha is generally considered to be a bit more upmarket than the cheaper Chang beer.
Like Chang, Singha is easy to get in Thai and Asian restaurants and supermarkets all across Europe.
The Singha is a powerful mythological lion, found in ancient Indian, Hindu and Thai stories.
Anyway about the only thing interesting about this beer is that the one and only Shane MacGowan did a song about Singha beer….”Singha beer don’t ask no questions; Singha beer don’t tell no lies”.
Review: 330 ml Bottle of Singha Premium Import: ABV: 5%
The bottle top has Singha’s dragon logo which looks pretty cool and there is a yellow lion on the front of the bottle. We are also told that this is “The original Thai beer since 1933.”
On pour we get a light gold looking beer, very clear, that produces a massive frothy white head which eventually flattens afterwards to die out. It is very fizzy and lively, a lot of carbonation.
No lacing but a perfectly clear looking beer………..
Has a very nice beery smell, faint but pleasant. Of grains, light malts and lager hops. Ok…….
The taste is a bit sweet at the start…….caramel and malt sweetness
Bitter after taste, which is a little strong, a little too hoppy
It is sessionable alright, but there really isn’t a whole lot of good tastes in the beer
Could work as a session beer, but might get sickly after a while, can taste a bit like washing up liquid if you ask me……not a great beer overall.
