Episode 141 – Hue Beer from Vietnam
Hue Beer, from the Hue province in Vietnam, is the first export beer to come out of Vietnam after the trade embargo was lifted by the Clinton administration. Unfortunately, this was a rush-to-production American Adjunct Lager style beer, tailored especially for the US market, so it’s not an authentic Vietnamese beer – well, not one they drink over in Vietnam, anyway. It is, unfortunately, a horrible beer with a weird nose and almost no flavor. Surprise surprise.
