Flavored Beer

Sunday, January 15th, 2012
On a visit to SE Asia to one of our customers we were introduced to a new craze…. Flavored beer. Truthfully, I do not like beer.  There’s something about the taste and smell and that I do not like.  However, when flavored, the taste was masked and the drink seemed less bitter to me.  In cafe shops around Indonesia, imagine a long tall beer glass alongside a syrup bar.  Various syrups with pumps for you to squirt into your beer.  The surprising standout flavor, for me, was Kiwi.  The color of the beer is only slightly tinted; the flavor, surprisingly good.  Other popular flavors are Peach, Raspberry, Orange, Lychee and Lime.  Have you tried flavor beer?  What was your impression?
