Tiger Beer is brewed by Asia Pacific Breweries, a joint venture between Heineken NV and Frasers & Neave. It’s obviously the major brand of the brewer and it was first brewed back in the early 1940s. The beer has managed to gain immense popularity throughout the Asian Continent, in particular South East Asia.
Tiger Beer is a dry-hopped beer with a rather rich taste. It’s ideal for a long drinking session. My very first reaction was it tasted a bit strong, but after a few large sips, my taste buds eventually got used to the friendly invasion of quality hops and the overly strong taste replaced with a nice and rich one, with a lasting bigger finish. In short, it’s a highly refreshing beer and goes nicely with food, particularly spicy and peppery dishes.
Tiger is a regular lager beer and its alcohol content is a sensible 5%. However, it does taste stronger than this. Its colour is quite pale in comparison to those of other lager beers. The bottle label is mainly red in colour with the distinctive picture of the adult Tiger in a stunning yellow colour on top.
Tiger is readily available not just in Asia but also elsewhere, including the UK. I’ve heard you could buy Tiger bottles off the internet from online retailers from £1.50 to £2 a bottle. Of course, it’s a bit pricey but that’s the price you have to pay for a beer acclaimed as the best in the world, for 2 successive years.
