Tiger Lager

A review from over a year ago...

I've said it before, and things haven't changed much since... lagers aren't really my thing. They're usually just alright. it's hard to pick them and enjoy them over beers with more character.

It pours with a nice 1.5-finger head that drops to nothing in no time. It's clear and golden, with lots of bubbles rising to the surface.

It's got a nice lager smell... it smells like you'd expect a lager to smell, with a bit of malty/toffee sweetness.

There is sweetness in the flavour, too... a bit of fruit like green grapes. That'd be a hint to some ester action, which shouldn't be there, but it didn't bother me, to be honest.

The mouthfeel is good... smooth and medium overall, which is more on the robust side for a lager. The carbonation is crisp.

Overall - pretty good.

  2. Don't think so... I think the cloudiness was from condensation on the glass or the paint colour. I had this one a long time ago, though. No way to tell now!
