Guinness Export in Malaysiaposted on 20 February 2009 | posted in Miscellaneous
Earlier this year I was in Malaysia and discovered Guinness Export - available in little stubby cans and with a strength of 8%. Two quick cans of Export leaves you in an inebriated haze that seems almost sentimental - it's like learning to drink all over again.
Upon opening my first can, I expected one of those mini-eruptions that seem necessary to create a smooth foamy head - yes, and with the kind of noise that stops conversations and forces the can holder to run to the nearest sink. Not so though! Pouring it into a glass, I thought I'd purchased some kind of cola. The black liquid made a token effort of looking like a Guinness before receding back to its cola look.
However, don't let the looks put you off - this is a real buzz beer. It's has a curious taste with a twilight-zone strength - and it seems to have gained a 'cult' status. Here's what some others are saying:-
When Chang tastes of a hangover right from the first sip, it's a pity that there's nowhere I can buy Guinness Export in Thailand (that I know of!).
