On my recent trip, I was excited to try as many new beers as possible. Turns out the rest of the world doesn't really have microbrew fever. Here's the short list of beers I got to try:
Cruzcampo (brewed in Spain, drank in Spain): Known locally by English-speakers as "Cruz-Crappo." It's terrible. Think Natural Light with a hint of acetobacter. Still, it was different, so I got drunk on it. After 6, they start to taste ok.
Tiger (brewed in Singapore, drank in UAE): BMC with a nice, international looking label. Nothing special.
Singha (brewed in Thailand, drank in UAE): I've had this one before. It's not bad. Definitely an Asian brew with plenty of rice. The flavor is light and a little spicy - the spice notes mostly due to the slightly high ABV of 6.0%, but there are some hop notes present. The best of the bad beers on this trip.
Guinness (brewed someplace, drank in London's Gatwick airport): I already posted about this one elsewhere. It was my first and only pint of beer in the UK. It tasted like every other Guinness I've ever had. Decent beer, but there was nothing special about Guinness in the UK.
Surprisingly enough, those were the only somewhat unique beers I got to try. Otherwise, the selection was largely Beck's, Heineken, and Bud. I stuck to scotch or Jack Daniel's for the most part.
