Maybe it’s because I just finished reviewing Longboard Island Lager which scored great reviews, but I just wasn’t that impressed with Tiger Lager Beer. Whereas Longboard’s taste was bold and memorable, Tiger was flat out boring. Keep in mind that I didn’t say Tiger is a bad beer—just boring. If you’re looking for something fun and interesting—a beer to get people talking, I would maybe try something with a little more taste to it.
Now that I’ve completely harped on the taste, let me tell you that after drinking one of these Tiger lagers, I pulled up the beer’s Web site to find out a little more about what I was drinking. Turns out Tiger has a pretty solid brewing process consisting of more than 200 quality checks and some 500 hours of brewing. Not only that, but the Tiger Lager brewery has even gone as far as to adopt three brother tigers at the Singapore Zoological Gardens to help raise awareness for the conservation and protection of tigers.
Even the history of this beer was impressive. According to Wikipedia, the beer was launched in 1932 as the flagship brand of Asia Pacific Breweries—the brewery that produces Heineken, Anchor, Baron’s Strong Brew and ABC Extra Stout. And today, the beer is distributed in over 60 countries worldwide, including Europe, USA, Latin America, Australia and the Middle East.
I found all of this so cool, I decided to try another.
Nope. Still nothin’.
