Not a review, but a question regarding Thailand's "Singha".

I had a bottle recently after several years, and I thought the brewery had lowered their ABV on this beer.  It just didn't taste the same as I remember it.  The label indicated 5% alcohol, and I didn't see any mention of it being a "malt liquor" like the old label indicated.  Has this recipe been watered down, or is it my memory that is watered down?

Mmmmm... Haven't had it since high school, that I can recall.

But I have fond, fond memories of it.

Never realized at the time it might be higher alcohol.

I always assumed the eastern beers were lighter.

I'm pretty sure that Singha used to clock in at 6%ABV.  Not absolutely certain, however.
I haven't had one in a while, so if it indeed has changed, I have no idea when that may have happened.
