On a recent flight with China Southern airlines I discovered that in fact they have a range of beers available and not just the drinkable Beijing Yang Jing brand.
When asked what I would like to drink I simply said beer and was surprised to be offered the alternative option of Carlsberg Chill.
This is a beer that is all about branding and image from the name to the design to the text on the can. The brew is promoted as “Scandinavian Inspiration” and the “Perfect Ultimate Refreshment”.
They even claim to be the “Perfect taste for the new generation”!
The beer was drinkable but not up to the standards of Malaysian or European variants of Carlsberg.
It has 4.0% alcohol which is above average for most Chinese brewed beers and also benefited from its oversized 355ml can.
I never find it easy to review beer when it is given to me for free but I have to say size matters and I would always prefer a 355ml can over a 330ml as long it doesn’t taste like soapy piss.
