I got this bottle last month in Vietnam. I was at a little stand where a man had lots of Vietnam War era stuff. He had two bottles, I wish I had got both. My daughter in law, who is native to Ho Chi Minh City kept telling me it was garbage he picked up and tried to talk me out of it. I knew it was older because it has Indochine on the bottom. It was about $5 which was expensive for stuff in the shop.

That's an interesting one, never seen any old bottles from Vietnam before. It's also probably the oldest ACL beer I've ever seen, assuming that it's pre-1954. Does it have any Vietnamese writing on it or is it all French?

I will take a picture of the back, wish I had thought of it but I am a newbie and I like to have never figured out how to post a picture. I will take one when I get home and post it. I believe the bottle is in the 1960s range.

Yes, the top line is Chinese meaning tiger brand beer. The Vietnamese translates something like "made in cho lon in a factory that is state of the art with the best processes in the world it gives you strength lots of vitamins and is made from superior quality ingredients". Cool bottle!
