One of the first beer I tried, a little bit sweet on the taste, less bitter, very suitable for summer or tropical country

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2013 Re-rate - Bottle from A-Mart off-license, South Kuta, Bali, Indonesia.
Sunny, sparkling gold with fine carbonation and a fluffy, lasting white crown. Pleasant grassy hop nose, very clean with just a whisp of palest malt. Citrus, lemon burst over some classy, grassy hops. Lightly bitter, crisp and oh so clean. Body is light to delicate with moderate carbonation. Good back-bone of malt, grainy with a hint of sweetish, toasted grains and pale honey. Kills the modern Bintang. Very refreshing, light and balanced. Much different from the beer I tasted many years back.
Another beer to add to the list as I ventured around Bali. Tasted from the bottle and poured into a Pilsner glass. Brilliant pale gold body, with even small carbonation failing to produce a head, bar some lace. Sweet fruit punch aroma, fairly clean. Dry, light bodied and crisp in the mouth. Light honey sweet front, with bitter sides and a medium length bitter swallow. Light in taste and well suited to the climate of Indonesia and Bali, but I still think ’Bintang’ is one up (but that’s a personal thing!).

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
So I found this beer in Liechtenstein, of all places. The label is pretty much identical to the pic here, so i’m assuming it’s the same beer.
Either way, the beer is nothing special; bready, slightly skunky pale lager. Suggestion of hop character but not enough to make it interesting.
