1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light golden coloured body of course with a very thin white head. Aroma of light malt, rice and a hint of metal - not much going on here. Light-bodied; Sharp malt and rice flavours at first with a hint of apple and pear sweetness, caster sugar and a bit of grain, but a mostly watery flavour. Aftertaste is dry and mild with the rice coming through the strongest with perhaps a hint of sugar at the finish. Overall, a pretty standard beer that doesn’t seem too bad in comparison with others - sure it’s not great or ’hip’, but it’s cheaper and of course with Indonesia, has the same alcohol as all the other beers - so no major concern. I sampled this 620 mL (big bottle) purchased at Circle K in Kerobokan, Bali, Indonesia on 26-June-2014 sampled a few minutes later here in Bali, for IDR25,000.

Hellgelbes Bier mit winzigen Schwebeteilchen. Schaum ist nicht gut. Geruch malzig, leicht säuerlich. Geschmack wässrig, leicht malzig, aber auch gering säuerlich. Kein gutes Lagerbier.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can - 330ml. Boring, piss-like body with heavy carbonation and a fading white bubbly head. Thin malty/hoppy aroma with corny and grassy hints. Its watery taste carries light herbal notes and ends with a short bitter/corny finish. Useless, but thanks Scott for bringing this to me from Indonesia.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Another fizzy tasteless lager from Indonesia. This doesn’t have any real taste to it.
It is like a facsimile of beer. It looks like beer though tastes like fizzy yellow water.
This is not recommended. This makes Bintang taste like it was brewed by Mikkeller.

Not that special but enough. Taste better than Bintang, for me. Also cheaper. It cost you only $1.50/330 ml.

The second most popular beer brand in Indonesia after bintang. The taste is acceptable in the heat.

For some reason I thought this would taste like Anchor, but it doesn’t. It doesn’t much taste like anything really. Clear in colour taste and aroma. Inoffensive.
