Myanmar Lager Beer

The beer had a likable pungent smell. I reasoned that either I've come to enjoy the smell of lagers (which I historically didn't) or that this one smelled exceptionally pleasant.

The taste was delightfully light and there was a highly carbonated mouthfeel - perfect considering I just came in from the blazing heat. On the flipside, there wasn't much of a taste.

In any case, it was so light, I had downed half of it before realizing I should save some for during and after the meal. 3:33PM PT
