“Klang” means elephant in Khmer. Isn’t that great?

A sunny day on the white long fine sanded beach of Koh Rong. Sounds great but gets boring after a while. I can only go swimming for so many times and relaxing is just not really my thing. Good that we overheard some techno music coming from somewhere in the jungle. So we went out to check out from where. And sure enough, after a long way up some stairs we found a bar we didn’t notice before where three English lads were playing quality music. The view was stunning, the people were cool and the music was awesome! We found our place. I brought my mixing deck out and played some tunes myself before getting invited to play that night in one of the bars on the beach. So I played some good ole German techno on the beach and I got free beer all night. Boom.

So today’s drink of the day is free Klang Beer. The budget version of Cambodia’s wide range of beers knows its customer. A 0.33ml can is usually $0.25 cheaper than the Angkor equivalent and Klang has 6% instead of 5. Best value if you want to get drunk on beer for cheap money. And it even comes in an attractive can with a huge elephant on it. The beer is golden clear and medium fizzy. It has quite a sweet malty and slightly metallic aroma. The taste was grainy with a very sweet malty note to it, a tiny bit bitter but just watery and a bit sweet in the end. Not really a great beer but I guess you can’t expect that if the company who brews it belongs to the Carlsberg group. At least I got free beer all night.
