Myanmar Lager - Myanmar - 6/12/2013


The Low Down:
This is a big juicy sweet lager, fresh from B̶u̶r̶m̶a̶ Republic of the Union of Myanmar. In the home country this is more heavily advertised than Coca-Cola. You can't walk a block without a great big sign espousing the real world benefits of the greatest drink in the country.

If these billboards are to be believed Myanmar lager turns you into a sexual Tyrannosaurus, capable of near god-like actions of romantic attraction.

There isn't a lot of truth to the advertising of course, but the beer is a pretty good example of the southeast Asian tradition of drinking copious amounts of booze to deal with the heat, the poverty and the spicy food.

Packaging: 5/10
Fairly good, I like the palace.
Refreshment: 8/10
Asian beers are by definition refreshing, and this is no exception.
Flavour 6/10
It isn't the most spectacular or complex beer, it is simple and sweet and a little bitter.
Alcohol Content: 6/10
5%. Pretty impressive for what feels like a light beer.
Price: 9/10
$1.50 oh Asia and your still poverty stricken economy.
Total: 34/50




A great offering from the future gem lords of the sub-continent (Just watch, now that they are exporting again cheap jade and gemstones will fill the rivers and we will all live like Scrooge McDuck).
Mangoes and papayas. Do it.
Cheers.
