How come there's a Singapore beer called Tiger and a Thai beer called Singha? What's that about, eh?
Anyway, Singha is one I've seen on sale for years and years but today was the first time I'd tried it. Expecting a basic hot-country lager, I was surprised. In strength it resembles the Munich lagers, weighing in at 6%, and it has a similar well-honed smoothness. But instead of the Bavarian sweetness, this has a dry and slightly sharp malty bite. Isn't it great when a beer turns out to be more interesting than you expected?
Westmalle Dubbel - *Origin: Belgium | Date: 2008 | ABV: 7% | On The Beer Nut: October 2007* It's a longtime favourite today. Westmalle Dubbel goes back to the very beginnings...
