Just wanted to look at the photo of beer again :-)
Light Beer is not something we see a lot of here in W.A !
I think they have it in Nang Thong Supermarket.
Just for clarity, when they say light beer, its means light in Calories/carbs, not on the alcohol content (not sure about other places, but in Aust a light beer is a low alcohol content beer, generally under 1% alcohol)
Light beers are less on alcohol, Singha Light for instance being 3.5% instead of its usual 5%.
Thanks Psyvolt. That means it's good for you as well.
Some light beers are lower alcohol like the Singha light mentioned by Arandora but some are not the San Miguel light for example is the same 5% as the normal San Miguel so if you are looking for a lower alcohol beer check the label first.
Ahhhh, i was only half correct, as I only drink San Mig Light in Thailand, and not tried the other beers. Cheers for the correction.
'Light' can indeed mean a couple of things. In the case of the alleged 'low carb' beer movement, they are actually more 'dry'. That is to say that the fermentables 'finish' out without as many residual sugars. Quite often, a 'light' beer will have processed sugar in the ingredients bill, rather than all-malted-barley. Sugar pretty much totally ferments out, and the byproduct is, to the layperson, 'alcohol'
'Pale Ale' is another one of those misleading therms. A beer classified as a Pale Ale may not necessarily be pale in colour.
I managed to get San Miguel lite at Monster Bar when we were there in Nov :)
