    Balashi

    Hi there! Love the Balashi but I'm curious as to whether or not there is a Balashi "light"???? Can't believe I will be on the beautiful beach at the Divi tomorrow afternoon!!!!!!

    Don't believe I've ever seen Balashi light. You could make your own by adding ice cubes to the glass.

    Be there Saturday.

    can someone tell me what the equivalent to Balashi is.. I know that it won't be "exactly" the same as another beer.. but is it close to anything?

    I've seen Balashi Light on tap before but it's hard to find. Have never seen it in cans or bottles.

    I can't believe Balashi Light exists!!! Last year we were at Boca Prins and, as my mother is on a perpetual diet, she asked for a Balashi Light. We all laughed and said that didn't exist! We've been busting her ever since!

    I hope she never reads this forum becuse she'll NEVER let us live it down that we were wrong

    Try Corona Light for something similar. Heinken Light imo, is a bit more bitter. Amstel Bright is similar as well but not available in the states.

    It's close to a beer from Germany, Erdinger Weissbiere, I think....
    I'm not a beer drinker, but I do have the odd one on a special occasion, and the first day on the island is usually it, so Balashi's the natural choice.
    Pretty light, and bearable for a non-drinker... like the Erdinger.
