家乡味

On upscale Daxue Road 大学路 near my Chinese school there's a little shop selling imported beers called Cheers IN. I'm not sure they're doing that well (their shelves seemed emptier today than last time I went) but they still have a wide selection of Belgian beers (on which I'll pass) and, 
more surprisingly, beers from San Diego (I'll partake). This one - I can't tell you how bracingly wonderful even a ho-hum IPA is after thin Chinese beer - would be the taste of home (jiaxiangwei 家乡味) even if it didn't have one of the San Diego beach lifeguard towers on its label!
