Bottle sample at a Southeast Asian alcohol tasting at Nimrod’s place. Thanks Nimrod. Clear deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, a bit of metal, a bit of caramel and light toastiness. Sweetish caramelly flavor with light toasty notes and a drier finish. Medium-bodied. Pretty drinkable.

Not a bad one. Good flavor with slight roasted notes for the the dark lager. Not a lot of head, and pretty light. Decent brew to drink.

33cl brown bottle pours brownish copper with full tan head and spotty lacing. I’m clueless on how this could be a Vienna style beer. Ratebeer confounds at times. The aroma is a little dusty and then offers up modest earthy notes, spicy hop notes, a touch of roasted malts, nuttiness and gravel road. The taste has sweet malt infused nuttiness rolling slowly into a bit of roasted malts, spicy hops and earthiness. Pretty nice stuff.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl bottle in Phnom Penh. Quite disappointed with this beer this time. This was my favourite beer the last time I visited Indochina and I remembered it as quite delicious. This time it was just a sweet and malty bland beer with some caramel and just a hint of spices. Quite sweet and sugary. Very little bitterness. I still think it would taste better in Laos - it was probably much fresher in Vientiane. It’s still drinkable, but far from a great beer. (2012-04-30)

A watery malted beer. Kind of reminds me of negra modelo or something. Aroma nearly nonexistent, flavor not too much better

Wässrig röstiger Start. Verbrannt, kaum aromatisch, unpassend süß werdend. Wässrig bitterer und röster Nachgeschmack. Ziemlich schlecht. 9/5/6/5/7/5
