Overview Thailand is not a country with a long history of brewing, and Singha has seen all of it—it’s the nation’s first domestic beer. The Boon Rawd brewery was founded in 1933 by Boonrawd Sreshthaputra.

Flavors and aromas We were happy to get non-skunked samples, given that what’s served in restaurants is so often skunky. Sweet malt and spicy noble hops pair with light cooked corn in the nose here. The light body of this beer has firm malt and clean character. Bitterness isn’t strong, but it’s definitely present, shining through in the aftertaste. Good flavor intensity persists into the well-balanced finish, and our tasters noted the nice mouthfeel and good carbonation.
