COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As our flagship brand, this classic Pilsner is our pride and inspiration. Skillfully brewed, it is specially blended for the tropics, moderate and slightly dry. With a well-rounded finish and creamy foam, it is rich in taste and well deserving of its name. Truly premium.

jgb9348 (4628) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Pale golden coloured body with a sliver of a white head. Aroma of rice, corn, grain and metal - not much and what is - isn’t too pleasant. Light-bodied; Strong rice and corn flavours with some caster sugar and a hint of metal at the finish - nothing too strong, but a little sweet at the end seemingly from corn, actually. Aftertaste is sweet with only a little grain flavour and some cardboard noticeable. Overall, a decent offering that has the same alcohol as all other Indonesian beers of course, but shows decent compared to the other pale lagers. I sampled this 620 mL bottle purchased next door at Circle K in Kerobokan, Bali, Indonesia on 28-June-2014 for IDR27,000, only 500IDR more expensive than a 330 cL can of Guinness - easily worthwhile.

maekchu (1943) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 14, 2014
Bottle from Yamaya. Mix of stinky hop (skunked?) and light formaldehyde. Clear medium straw. Thin buttery initial, some caramel, extract-like notes, and tiny hopping. Thin body, Pretty bad. First beer I’ve had from Indonesia -- no, wait... the second. And it doesn’t inspire me to seek out others

Holmen1 (2272) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 16, 2014
0,33 boks (takk til Hans!), på Holmens aktivitetsdag mars-14: faktisk litt humlearoma og en lett syrlig bitterhet i smaken. Liten munnfylde, kort skum, kort ettersmak. Forsåvidt ikke noe feil, men der er bare så lite av alle viktige elementer. Lett å glemme, men fint med et nytt land.

Muggus69 (1132) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2014
OLD NOTES DEC 25, 2003 Why was one of these included in a selection of EUROPEAN beers? A kind corny hop aroma that you get from export lagers. Pours quite pale golden colour with lots of bubbles and a foamy head that disolves quickly. Reasonably watery body with a few little hoppy hints. Crisp and refreshing, but bland.

EithCubes (4702) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Bottle, green glass. Nose corny, not quite skunky, sweet with a little malt. Pours a dark but not particularly inviting golden with a short white head. Watery light body, lightly crisp with some darker caramel notes under the corn (reminded of some of the drier Ami Dark Lagers); no hops, very light bitterness, at least it’s not cloying.
