I searched the forum and saw that exacto posted a similar question in 2006...so since it's been a while, I'd like to ask again..
What's your favorite beer in SE Asia?
What's your favorite beer in the world? (I'm asking about widely available beers, not craft beers that we've never heard of)
Tiger Beer is my 'go to' beer in SE Asia. I find it smooth and tasty. Perfect if I just want one or if I plan on drinking all night.
Favorite in the world...I'd have to say Sapporo. I lived in Korea for four years. Korean beer is awful..I always found myself paying a premium for Japanese beer, especially Sapporo.
Beer Lao. Between the bunch available in LOS I prefer Leo. In the world any kind of wheat beer (Paulaner, Edelweiss, ...) or Czeh beer like Kozel, Budvar, Pilsner Urquell,... Here, in Spain, San Miguel bottled (though It´s not the same than the one sold in Philippines or Indonesia).
Namkong. It is Beer Lao's little brother and is pretty good. Give it a try.

Hey Bob, Leonard - are you guys fat? Light beer makes sense when you have to watch your weight and still want a beer with your meal.
I have to routinely cut weight so on occassion when I want a beer with a meal then San Mig works. I also like the flavor with a lime added.
As I said before, different strokes for different folks. You don't like it, don't drink it. The market will determine it's value to the consumers. And that's the only opinion that really counts.
Americans have some great beers and excellent micro-breweries. John Adams dark is a good beer. But my favorite beer on planet earth is a Canadian Brew - Molson Export.
"I don't know any regular beer drinkers elsewhere that like light beer."
Neertheless, Germany produces and sells light beer. I won't say it's popular, but obviously people buy it and drink it, or nobody would be making it.
As I said, different people like different things. There is no right answer when it comes to drink or food (well unless it kills you).
Few people fight when they're 51. Although I have to admit I like the flavor of the beer with a lime in it. You see Leonard, I don't give a **** what other people think about beer or wine. I like what I like. If others like it, great. If they don't, that's OK. I don't follow the herd.
