Tiger Beer Brewed by Asia Pacific Breweries in Singapore
Launched in 1932,
Tiger beer is Asia Pacific Breweries’ flagship brand. Over the years, Tiger
has seen beer drinkers globally acclaim Tiger as one of the finest in the
world. It has consistently come out on top in world tastings, winning gold
medals for its crisp, smooth, refreshing, well-balanced and flavorful taste.
Tiger's distinctive taste comes from its quality ingredients and meticulous
brewing process that involves over 200 quality checks. This European-style lager
is brewed using only the finest natural ingredients like malted barley from
Australia and Europe and bitter hops from Germany. The former adds body and
flavour to the beer which many beer fans love; while the latter gives the brew
its characteristic bitter zest.
What makes Tiger truly stand out is the special strain of yeast used in this
bottom-fermented beer. This unique strain of yeast is specially cultured in
Holland and it works slowly in the golden liquid at low temperatures instead of
fizzling away on the surface of the 5% alcoholic brew.
Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Appearance - Pours a deep golden color, light highlights. Head formation is
strong, pearly white in color. Lots of bubbling, sticking to the glass.
Aroma - Light pilsner malts and a hair of noble hops. Smooth and sweet. Not much
for adjuncts sneaking through. Very simple.
Taste - Starts off lightly smooth, sweet, lightly malty, hair amount of grainy
notes. Mid-stream brings in many more pilsner notes, more grainy with a near
balancing bitterness. Finishes clean with a little bit of corn like graininess.
Mouthfeel - Strong carbonation, light mouthfeel. Strong carbonation gives way to
some clingy aftertastes.
Overall - Easy drinking, simple high volume lager. Give me this with lot's of
Singaporean spicy food during the hot weather of Chinese New Year in Singapore,
I would gladly say that I'm in heaven :) Would pick this up for some heart to
heart talk session with friends back in Singapore. Overseas ? Yes only if the
price is lower or same as in Singapore, this beer ain't cheap in US.
