earlier this week i had two friends i met whilst in china over for a small asian beer tasting thing. i think we decided that the japanese beer sapporo won. tsingtao was of course our favorite, but mostly because the taste brought back memories, so that wasnt really fair on the other candidates. the two thai beers tasted like water. and the báijiǔ (on the far right) was just horrible – its not beer though (alc./vol. 65 %). the taste alone makes me sick.
