Danish and Dutch Beers in Singapore
For some reason that I can't figure out, low-end beer that one buys at convenience stores in Singapore is often from Denmark or Holland. I picked up a few of them the other day just out of curiosity, and tonight I tried them out.
The first one, Red 8.6 by Bavaria, was so nasty that I practically spat it out. It was one of those high alcohol content beers, and tasted as if it were rotting. The second one, Bear Beer, was also a "strong beer" but fortunately didn't taste as bad as the first. That didn't mean that it was good though. Finally, the last one, Royal Dutch Post Horn, was a bit more tolerable. But that was of course relative to the other two, and was not really anything that I would opt for again.
Yes, the first two were pretty much like malt liquor back in the US. Are these even popular in their home countries? Heck, are they popular here in Singapore? And sorry for all of the packaged goods lately; frankly I haven't seen too much lately that has been inspiring.
