If I drink when I´m eating, I normally choose wine. But when I´m having "exotic" food sometimes I like having an "exotic" beer to match it: Coronita or Sol with Mexican food, Cobra or Tiger with Indian and so on.
Lanzarote has such a wide range of restaurants that I have discovered 5 new beers that will take you around the world... without leaving the island!
From my favourite Japanese joint Sushi Bar Minato in Puerto Calero, all in 33cl bottles, I have tried:
1) Asahi. Alcohol 5.0% volume.
My favourite one. Quite similar to Sapporo in my humble opinion. I find it dry, smooth and not too bitter.
2) Sapporo. Alcohol 4.7% volume.
Probably the best known of the Japanese beers. I think it has a more robust taste than Asahi but not bitter at all.
3) And finally Kirin Ichiban. Alcohol 5.0% volume.
It seems softer but gassier to me, with a slight bitter aftertaste.
