Singha Premium Import

Singha Premium Import

Brewed by Boon Rawd Brewery Co., Ltd 
Style: Premium Lager
Bangkok, Thailand

Singha Premium ImportSingha 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. 

Singha Premium ImportLike 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%

Singha Premium ImportThe 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.

Singha Premium ImportNo 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.
