An NT$3 Difference Between Taiwan Beer Types

Taiwan Beer and its Gold Medal Companion

I've got a bit more clarity on the differences between those Taiwan Beer varieties now. I did a quick blind taste taste to see why the "Gold Medal" version commanded an NT$3 (US$0.10) premium: it's ever so slightly smoother than the basic variety.

But of course that's coming off of a very low base, as I never really liked Taiwan Beer much to begin with; that heavy aftertaste never went over well with me. Then again, these were cans purchased from 7-Eleven. Hopefully we'll get to visit the Taiwan Beer Bar tomorrow, where clearly the beer will be on tap, and will finally give me a better taste of the stuff.
