A craft beer branded with Vietnam War references has been labelled "cheap" and "disrespectful" by the president of New Zealand’s Returned Soldiers’ Association (RSA).
“Death From Above” is made from American hops, Vietnamese mint, chilli and lime, and south-east Asian mangoes. It was created by The Garage Project brewery for an Australian beer festival, but has offended Vietnam War veterans in New Zealand.
The beer, produced by a boutique brewery in Wellington, New Zealand, is called “Death From Above”, in reference to the napalm-dropping helicopter from classic Vietnam War film Apocalypse Now.
