Siwu Xihu Beer


Recommended Posts

Ok, I got a 6 pack of Siwu Xihu Beer. I iced up 2 bottles to have with some pizza today. The 1st bottle was very good. It is a light lager, ... sort of like Corona. I opened the 2nd bottle and it was flat. I didn't have any more on ice, so I had to go and get a cold Corona.

Bottom line is that it is an ok beer. I would buy it if it is on sale.

The thing that bothers me is the lack of quality control (much like most things coming out of China these days). If the people in power don't start regulating themselves, they are going to poison their own well. So sad. There is so much potential there.

Ah yes, the ubiquitous Siwu (which I think is some funky spelling of the Chinese xihu, as in West Lake). Not a big fan, I prefer Xuehua. By the way, do the bottles of Siwu for sale in the States boast of it "now being formaldehyde free!" like they do in Hangzhou?
