3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle in a Phnom Penh club, waiting for the rockabilly band to take the stage. Deep copper off white head lasts. Nose is Christmas pudding, flavour has some nice toffee and raisin, a bit sticky, like English ales of 2 abv points higher. Slightly oxidized but that kind of fits for this type of beer. Metallic aftertaste secures its rating as good rather than excellent.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl can, 2 years ago. Saw this canned bitter in one of the local supermarkets. Decided to try it at 10AM. After two cans I felt light and refreshed. Not exactly premium bitter, but a "best bitter" for sure (for the price). Mild, smooth, fruity.

500ml bottle from B&M Bargains. Mild Caramel aroma. Poured into an English pint. Rich dark honey colour with a dense, creamy off white head. Medium sweet fruit and nut toffee flavour. Full bodied, smooth, soft carbonation. Not quite dull, but definitely a Steady Eddie of the beer world.

Boks fra Kvickly på Nørrebro: farge og skum som seg hør og bør for en esb. Lett blomsterpreget aroma og smak som gjør den lett over drøvelen. Fin pøseøl, mye bedre enn sip (standard industripøs).
