    It tastes like a British 'winter brew'; perhaps a little lighter and slightly gassier (in the bottle at least). I think the best beer I have tasted in Asia, although Japan''s Yebisu is very nice too.
    Chang's new Export beer is also a very nice drop.

    Its a nice contrast in a part of the world where beer drinking reminds me of making love in a canoe

    Smile Big Surprise - Beer Laos in Cardiff !!

    Well would you believe it. Just been in a store next to the Premier Travel Inn where i'm staying in Cardiff and lo and behold they have big bottles (640ml) of Beer Laos on the Shelf @ £1.49 a bottle.

    First time i've ever seen beer from the Peoples Democratic Republic in Britain.

    So it's a big Well Done to B&M Bargains Supermarket, Pentwyn, Cardiff

    The manager must have thought you were off your head, taking photos of bottles of beer in his shop!

    None - yet. Might pop back in a bit and get half a dozen. They have a Best Before date of May 12 on them so plenty of time to drink 'em.

    Can't see many of the uneducated locals clambering for Beer Laos but you never know i suppose.

    They've got another beer on the shelves call Sun Lik, a Pale Lager beer by San Miguel Brewery (Hong Kong)

    Funny really, i went in Tesco's Cardiff for a sarnie at lunchtime and they had Singha and Chang in 640ml bottles, i never see Chang in my local supermarkets, only Singha. They also had Singha in 330ml bottles in packs of 4, first time i've seen them too. (They even had Hobgoblin and Dorothy Goodbodies)

    Maybe the people of Cardiff are more educated than i thought.

    I waited till there was no one around and got the snap in snappy.

    I think there were about a dozen on the shelf, i'll ask the stock controller what the situation is.

    Wolfy, you should have checked in more whilst on your hols!

    Beer Lao's availabilty in B&M was discussed in two threads. If Cardiff is anything like my local store, it'll be there one-week, then nothing the next, then back again and so on....

    The Sun Lik is brewed under license in the UK - who'd have thought that?

    Well there you are then, proves i'm not lying or using trick photography !!

    I've just lost 571 calories without even trying.

    In the Premier Travel Inn restaurant i ordered Vanilla Cheesecake with fruits of the forest compote and vanilla ice cream for dessert but they'd got none left so i didn't have any. I feel really good about it actually. I was only ordering it for the sake of it as i'd paid for a 3 courser.

    Well no but it doesn't matter. You see they do this thing called a meal deal for twenty two quid which gets you a three course meal and a drink plus buffet breakfast which I will be partaking in a bit later. My Chicken Goo Johns starter was a fiver, Rump Steak and spud with mushroom tomato and peas, eleven quid and a glass of red wine about three quid.

    The desserts are about a fiver. After the cheesecake incident I did look at the menu at other puddings but with the Caramel Apple Crumble and custard weighing in at over nine hundred calories (admittedly a bit less with cream and a bit less further still with ice cream) i declined the offer of an alternative.

    Chuff me they do an ice cream sundae thingy with One Thousand Nine Hundred Calories in it.

    On the Breakfast menu they have recently added Crumpets which is marvellous news. They also offer all the usual items on the buffet, but you can't beat a bit of crumpet for breakfast.

    Anyway back to B&M's later, see if there's any Beer Laos left.
