    Just done the weekly shop @ Asda and they have large bottles of Singha for £1.80 each. First time I have been to Asda for a while so I was surprised to Singha on the shelf.

    The price has gone down everywhere now the 6% stock has gone. Asda does seem a bit cheaper than the others though? But at 5%, I don't bother anymore.

    Tesco where? The local one to me only has 5%, the local Waitorse was the last to change here.

    Maybe you should lay it down like a good wine!

    If you managed to get 6% then it was old stock. All Singha is now produced at 5% for both domestic consumption and export.

    Have to say that I prefer taste of the 5% - lighter and fresher. Am I alone?

    Whilst I try to avoid the strong beers generally (5% is more than enough), I actually prefer the 6% version of Singha.

    Yup!

    I thought it distinctive at 6%, at 5% I could be drinking anything, and theres lots better, cheaper options on the shelves.

    Well I must be the lucky one then, since they don't make the 6% any more. What do you drink when in LOS?

    For cost when buying a load to be drunk at the wifes village - Chang. It still tastes good as well!

    But otherwise, I find Leo to my liking.

    I tend to drink Singha or Heineken. I'm not a fan of Chang, much prefer the flavour of the 6% Singha so it is likely on my next trip I'll be sticking with Heineken if the Singha is of the 5% variety.

    I don't ever remember encountering 6% Singha in Thailand. Until I can get a decent pint of Bass or similar I think I'll stick with the Singha. Its one of the few lagers drinkable on a decent session.

    In your opinion!

    But you must be a newbie to LOS then, as it was only 6% until fairly recently. Not sure when the 'draught' version came out and I thought that was the idea behind the introduction of Leo at 5%?

    I'm sure someone will tell me all the above is wrong?!

    The funny thing about the strength of Singha/Chang is that when it dawned on me that Singha was 6%, probably after x years or so , I thought I'd better be good and try another, so went for Chang, it took me a few headaches before I realised it was stronger by 0.4%! I'm glad its still available out there though, or is there any plans to change it?

    I discovered the delights of Singha about two years ago. Chang is a bit heavy for me. I'm worried that the next step is a descent into the world of the local whiskey.
