330ml Can as a gift from Cambodia:
Clear, golden straw colour with a thumb-sized, bubbly white head that fades to a small, patchy lacing.

Sweet with some corn and grain as well as some adjuncts that probably includes some cheap lager malts. There is a pleasant citrus and lemon aroma around the middle that was unexpected and I could also detect some apple too.

Sweet with basic malts and a bit of citrus and grain. The taste was pretty standard for a cheap, Asian style pale lager but had a little something that the other Cambodian beers I've reviewed here recently did not. There was some lemon and a sort of grassy taste that is quite watery.

Thin & watery with a sweet taste that has a bit of fizz to it in parts. There is almost zero bitterness imparted on the beer and the flavours are quite bland.

Another poor Cambodian beer here but not the worst out there, that would really taste some doing. This one is basic and rather tasteless but at least it is drinkable.
