The launch of Tiger Radler has seen the worst of stupidity in mankind. K that’s a bit exaggerating but close.
Tiger Radler is a lemony, zesty, refreshing drink that is milder than the original Tiger Beer; which some may find too bitter. The alcohol content is also lower – at 2%, compared to the original of 5%. Because it is targeted at a different group of people.
Dunno why I got slightly dulan over this la, maybe because Nick works in Asia Pacific Breweries… I’m just irked by stupid comments I guess.
Ever since the launch, I saw a few friends posting about the drink on Facebook…. along with their thoughts on it. Most of the comments are about “The drink is much milder than the original… Not nice leh…” Excuse me. I’m assuming that before you tried you already knew it IS and WOULD BE milder? It is so widely advertised so if you’re unaware of it I guess you’re a mountain tortoise, or just ignorant.
The first thoughts of many people upon knowing of the new drink would be “Eh Tiger has new version… with lemon? Must be milder one (or something different)..”
Today, during my nephew’s baby shower at my house, I overheard (actually not overheard, the guy was talking so loudly that people at the other end of the house can hear. My house isn’t huge but you get the point) my brother’s friend exclaiming: “Wah simi lemon version? Wapiang 2% only? 給女孩子喝的？沒有味道的lor! 給女孩子喝的la!“
Yeah he is those loud-mouthed ah beng who loves to speak in hokkien and broken English.
FIRSTLY, SIMI 給女孩子喝的. LAI, WO CHALLENGE NI. NI QU LOU XIA MAI YI PING MARTELL KAN SHUI HE BI JIAO KUAI
Lololol. I’m super irritated by this sentence cos it reeks of such revolting male chauvinism. Geez.
Secondly, Tiger Radler is milder than Tiger Beer because it is meant to be. I wonder why so many people can’t understand this point. If you think it’s too mild for your taste, (if so, lai, challenge. LOL jk) then DRINK THE ORIGINAL lar! How hard can comprehending this be?!
It’s like drinking green tea and comparing it to coke. “Why isn’t green tea fizzy??!!” BECAUSE it is catered to different taste buds/different occasions you dickhead. Coke has many versions too – Vanilla, Zero, Light, Cherry… The brand wants to branch out to more consumers that’s why they created different versions to suit different tastebuds. People who likes Cherry might not like Vanilla.
A friend in fb posted about Tiger Radler with this comment: “Tiger Radler is milder than Tiger Beer, with a lemon twist… People who enjoy the original bitter version may not like it as much, but otherwise it is a refreshing and nice beverage.”
This is an example of a reasonable comment made by someone who has a brain and knows how to use it.
I know I cannot expect everyone to think in my Marketing perspective. (Woo) So my conclusion is simply that, people who kept harping on the low alcohol percentage are just show-offs e.g. trying to haolian and make others think their 酒量 is good.
You don’t see people who go to clubs and pubs and who drink hard liquor on a frequent basis purposely trying a drink like Jolly Shandy and declare it being “so mild”. Because they already know it would be and doesn’t interest them so they won’t even bother wanting to try.
An invisible being can argue with me that Tiger Radler is a relatively new drink hence there it is not well-known as a mild alcohol beverage.. but the point is even after knowing the alcohol percentage is much lesser than the original’s, people are still exclaiming that it is mild. Super action barbie (copy xiaxue say one lol).
