Just like Extra Stout, ABC Reserve is crafted by our world-class master brewer exclusively for Cambodia, with the highest quality ingredients including premium barley malt and a hint of whisky. ABC Reserve is an innovative beer with a luxurious amber color, a smoky aroma and a full-flavored spicy taste bottled in a new sleek design featuring its signature copper colour.

“Crafting the right recipe for ABC Reserve was a journey. What makes this brew so unique is how we crafted this based on consumer feedback to create just the right balance. Consumers can expect a full-bodied beer that is smooth and finishes with a mild warming sensation, something similar but not quite as intense, to the experience of drinking whisky,” said Susanne Bose, Master Brewer of HEINEKEN Cambodia.
