330ml Can brought back from Cambodia as a gift:
Clear & light, golden straw colour with a tiny head that was bubbly whilst it lasted and then quickly disappeared.

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 didn't help things much. Some light citrus towards the end.

Sweet with cheap adjuncts, some rice or bread maybe and a hint of citrus, heavily diluted by water. The taste wasn't 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 I'm 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 can't remember it begin this bad in the past.

On tap for 50 cents a mug in Siem Reap. From notes.

A - Poured bright with a light golden colour. One finger white head gone fast. Very small amount of carbonation. No lace, no retention.

S - Grainy with crackers or bread. Corn. Sweet grain. Fairly typical.

T - Corn. Yellow lager familiarity. Sweet grain. Very pedestrian.

M - A bit of dryness with corn husk in the finish. Very mild carbonation, medium body. Body is interesting, but carbonation is so off.

O/D - Tasted this 100s of times before. Plain. Unfortunately this is what a lot of the world thinks beer is. Easy to drink, but why?

The most popular beers in Cambodia are infact imported. But this one is brewed in sihanoukville, cambodia. They started the brewering in 1990. The beer and the label is inspired from Angkor Wat, the temple from 1100 by the Khmer-kingdom.It can be bought in USA and Europe.But the big importers are Japan and Canada.

Had a 22 oz bomber in Angkor Wat, Cambodia. No freshness date but it couldn't be that old...

A - looks like straw yellowish lager, typical for the style

S - oh wow this smells bad, sweet-ish sour-ish kind-of-chemical-ish-almost-rank. very disappointed already

T - this is all wrong. maybe tastes like sour corn flakes?

M/F - feels like beer? have to give it an average rating because smell and taste were so off-putting that i didn't really register the mouthfeel. apologies

O - some beer wizard friends have explained how brewing processes that use "shortcuts" create different chemicals in beers, which creates scuzzy flavors as well as dreadful hangovers. dunno how to pinpoint those chemicals, but this is definitely "shortcut" beer. flee on sight
