COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kingdom is introducing its second product; “Dark Lager”. The beer’s darkness is the result of the use of roasted malts. The taste includes a mild sweetness from caramel.

jmgreenuk (5247) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 28, 2015
Bottle shared with deanso. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin, slightly broken light tan head. The aroma is sweet caramel malt, light roasty malt. The flavour is moderate sweet, light bitter with a sweet, light aromatic, aniseed, light mineral palate. Moderate to light bodied with average carbonation. This rather surprised me actually.

I erroneously added kingdom dark as, on reflection, I simply think the abv of this has increased. I had a bottle and can whilst in siem reap and they were both 8%. Clear dark brownish red pour with quite stable tanned head. Aroma of coffee, malts and perhaps its slightly metallic. Really decent taste. Quite dry, bitter and certainly roasted malts. Nice.

skoisirius (1814) - Earth, Washington, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle in Phnom Penh. Coming from the only craft brewery in Cambodia, this was really not too bad. Your usual dark lager flavors, but just a bit watered down. Definitely recommended out here if you can find it!

jgb9348 (4925) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Deep dark brown body with a lighter brown glow at the bottom and a half centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of cereal, grain, malt, grapes and way more cereal - super pungent and smells immediately like goya malta when cracked open. Light-bodied; Sharp cereal malt flavour with absolutely no body and a thin sweetness of grapes, cherries and vanilla. Aftertaste shows the fruits, a bit of sweetness and interestingly enough - no malt - just the cereal flavour, but no depth or fullness. Overall, an interesting beer from a place that doesn’t have too many non-lagers, so this is welcome, even if not so great. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Pencil Supermarket in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on 02-April-2012 for 4800Rial or US$1.20 sampled back home on the opposite end of the world in Washington on 24-October-2013.

Cantabrian (903) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 21, 2013
Watery brown, with an interesting aroma of red fruits behind the powerful maltiness. Flavour is just cloying sweet. I don’t recall anything as a dark beer in Cambodia of 9 years ago, but this is no better than the lagers they had on offer then. Nice label!
