Since I was careful to avoid alcohol while the sun was high, this is the only photo I have of the omnipresent national beer (330 ml., about 6,000 kip, roughly 60 cents at the time). It's deep yellow with a thick creamy head, a full, mildly fruity malt aroma, a slightly sour flavor with a round mouthfeel, and a smooth finish. Even in the absence of food, it's a good session beer, but in the Luang Prabang heat, best keep your session short.
