2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Love the tshirt, posters & logo. The beer not so much, it is an ok pale lager with nothing outstanding about it in any way. It tasted fine drunk cold during my wanderings around Cambodia. But then again I was less of a beer geek back then...

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml Can brought back from Cambodia as a gift:
Sweet & grainy with lots of corn and bread making up the nose. There was the odd hint of malts, a sticky sweetness and a generally poor, almost skunky aroma that didnít help things much. Some light citrus towards the end.
Clear & light, golden straw colour with a tiny head that was bubbly whilst it lasted and then quickly disappeared.
Sweet with cheap adjuncts, some rice or bread maybe and a hint of citrus, heavily diluted by water. The taste wasnít up to much at all and came across as quite tasteless and bland with too much sweetness at the end.
Watery and bland with not much going for it other than some weakened citrus and watered down bitterness plus a bucket load of cheap adjuncts. Thin & disappointing with hints of bitterness and not much else.
Another very poor Asian beer and one that Iím surprised I drank with such ease a few years ago. This one was watery, bland and had little going for it in the way of taste yet I canít remember it begin this bad in the past.

Small can kindly shared by Sigmund. Clear sparkling golden with a white rim. Grains and a boozy hint on the nose. Sweet, papery bitter flavors. Light to medium body. Long papery bitter finish.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Shared can at local tasting. Pours clear straw coloured with no head at all.
Aroma not there, taste is sweet carbonized water, harsh bitter end. Far from good.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Had this almost by the gallon travelling round cambodia. For the price it is exceptional, compared to the majority of options you have in SE Asia. Pale golden colour, moderate white head. Minimal aroma. Watery mouthfeel. The flavour is bland, with a light hoppish finish. Perfect for the surroundings, metallic taste from the bottle adds a bit of zip.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Shared 330 ml can, kindly brought home from Cambodia by my cousin. ABV is 5%. Pale golden colour, moderate white head. Minimal aroma. Watery mouthfeel. The flavour is quite dry and rather bland as expected, with a hint of hops in the finish.
