Beer Lao dark or San Miguel wheat beer

None of that lot

I drink Leo/Tiger/U-beer. As far as I can tell those 3 beers all taste exactly the same.   I used to drink Chang but that beer gave be blackouts ..... a period of time where I did stuff

Agree. It's all donkey <deleted>. Even worse with the nearly unavoidable ice cubes thrown in it. 🤮 If hard pushed I would opt for Leo or Asahi. Asahi maybe the best of the lot, a bit stronger actually, refreshing taste, but still very industrial.

 

Fortunately, better beer can be bought at reasonable prices. The pic is just an example, there are a few others.

Oh yes, there is. I like Leffe (brune) and Chimay, too. But did you ever really taste Weihenstefaner Vitus ? If not it might be a revelation.

I drink riceberry it's a nice tasting beer the other at 4% is too weak, 5% is the limit. 7/11 sell Krung Thep beer from Cambodia which is good, but at 65 baht for a small can it's priced out of the market, Asean seems a waste of time they just tax but call it something else

Bottled, Tiger.  But if there's Asahi draught, I go that way.  I've never had a bad glass of Asahi, which is more than I can say for other draught beers.

For taste or because it is 6.5%

I discovered Tapper about 3 months ago and it is wonderful stuff. Only 51 baht (supermarket) or 53 baht (convenience store) a large can 6.5pc alcohol. I have had 2 cans every evening ever since.

 

If you like the taste of a top quality Scotch malt whisky you will love Tapper. Both made from malted barley (some rice as well maybe in Tapper). The closest and tastiest Thai made alternative to dark/ black beer Laos. 

 

Just leave some cans in the stores for me to buy!

I'm surprised no one has mentioned this yet, Singh Reserve is my current favourite, a shade darker than  standard Singh. 72 baht from 7 Eleven, I've only seen it in large and in 7 Eleven.

 

It grows on you, i always choose this if available

BIG Beer Lao IN Laos (40-50 Baht ?) drinking out - like it was genetically paired to my body to have almost no hangover even after 6 BIG 'uns.

 

I think its the very low gluten and lack of nuclear waste water from Fukushima 2011 like they have in the Thai Beer...( well the Thais have to reciprocate somehow with all the free blag they get off the Japanese.)

Now you know what is in those Japanese container ships coming in...

My favourite is not available in Thailand. In the summer it is "Fair Jenny's Jig" and in winter "Rabbies Porter" both made on the premises at the Glenpark Hotel in Ayr.

In Thailand. I cannot stand Chang, Leo is acceptable but slightly too sweet, Singha is better and the best of a poor lot is Tiger. It all depends on your own taste. As a highland barman told a tourist the "best whisky is the one you enjoy for yourself."

I agree, 4% is definitely too weak. These were just 2 of the few types I have been trying lately, the good news is that there is more choice than just the Leo-Singha-Chang-etc gang!
