Beer Friday/Saturday. Tiger Beer
After missing last night's beer review all thanks to a bike ride, I decided to miss tonight's bike ride all thanks to a movie night... Stupid movies! They're cramping my riding style! Movies wouldn't ruin my riding if I wasn't married... Uh Oh, Only a few sentences in and I'm looking like a giant piece of ass. We all know I'm just kidding so...
Tiger beer is a proud Asian and is one of the areas "Budweiser" if you will. Headquartered in Singapore the beer's brewer "Asia Pacific Breweries" has breweries all over the place. Tiger Beer was launched in 1932. A time when people were probably wanting the harder stuff as opposed to beer, but I'm sure it helped soothe some people's worries.
For tonight's trip to the beer store to pick up a tester I can't remember seeing this blue and silver can as it stood out quite predominantly. Much like a nice high end bike would at a shop. Odd I thought after reading about how popular it is the world over. It got special acclaim on it's website saying how "popular" and "great" this beer is. How strange of a companies website to promote their product like that! The Detroit Tigers baseball team also has a strong tie to this beer but I can't quite figure it out...
The pour showed a big three fingered head which christened a nice golden coloured beer. The smell was that of any common beer out there. I did pick up corn so I felt it to resemble this blog "corny."The first taste was a tad skunky, and so was the second and third. Midway through the taste got better but there was really nothing that impressed me on this one. Nope, nothing at all.
This beer gets 2 suds out of 5
