Tasting three Asian brands from Cavalier.

  • Saigon Export – One of the standards of SE Asia that most Viet Nam vets left behind. No head and little hops but clean and not soapy. No aftertaste at all. 4.9%
  • Chang – Thailand's leader. High carbonation; actually fizzy on the tongue. No head. Bigger than Saigon. A touch soapy. Actually has a dry finish. Our favorite of these three. 5%
  • Kingway Premium Lager – China's fanciest label. Greenest. Again, no head. Small-bubble carbonation. Malt taste lasts a bit as it declines. 4.7%
