Angkor Beer

Post by chiltern » Thu Feb 28, 2019 12:43 pm

Is it just me or has the taste of Angkor changed, I'm referring to bottles and cans not the draft which still tastes as if it has passed through the bladder of a sheep.

I know its a larger so is supposed to taste iffy but I allways found Angkor to have an artificial metallic taste not unlike Super Bok in Portugal, however recently I have found it has lost that edge.

As Mr Kim Angkor master brewer would tell it, always buy beer in glass bottles.

Might have something to do with this:
"Ratanak said the new management will strengthen the market standing of all products produced by Cambrew, with a special focus on the iconic Angkor Premium Beer.
“We have ambitions to make Angkor Beer the best selling Cambodian beer in regional and international markets,” he said."

It's the metal taste that puts me off Angkor cans. Their draft is what it is. I avoid bottles because of the glass recycling issue.
:roll: Drinking beer cans in Cambodia makes me ecologically friendly and also creates employment for can collectors. Lol.

I found Angkor cans vary from tolerable to nasty. I switched to Cambodia and they're consistently drinkable at least.

I normally avoid Angkor cans like the plague but recently it was all l could get in the countryside and was surprised that it was better than l remembered.
