mooie pilsener dit. Heb hem vaak gedronken bij pittige indonesische gerechten waar dit bier volledig tot zijn recht komt.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Indonesia’s standard lager, with thin but stable and regular, snow white head and pale golden blonde colour with steady fizz. Very weak aroma mostly revealing ’lightstruck’ (cat pee) effect at first, after which a faint sourish graininess appears, a bit sweaty (I hesitate to write this: feet?), a hint of iron and cooked rice, hardly any hops at all. Taste is on the neutral side, thin and watery with medium carbonation, some minerals, but the sourish graininess from the aroma dominates and leads to a finish with some faint and simple grassy hops along with a somewhat wry ’chemical’ plastic effect, as I would expect from ’macro’ lagers in the style of Heineken and the like. Nothing redeeming at all, this is below average even for an Asian standard pale lager.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle poured in a chalice.
I’m sorry but this is not a German Pilsener by any means, this could be classified as a Lager or an Adjunct Lager at maximum
A: Pale yellow color with a small fizzy white head. Ridiculous retention
S: Adjunct malts, rice or corn (or both) most probably
T: Watery. Some malts. Quite dry but, in overall, tasteless. Small bitterness. Ok, refreshing, like water
M: Very light body. Medium to low (disappointing) carbonation
D: A "beer" to be avoided

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
33cl flesje cadeau gekregen uit Indonesië
Alcoholpercentage van 4,7%
Gedronken meteen uit het flesje
Pilsener conclusie: brouwerij in handen van Heineken zie ik, proeft ook veel in die richting.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2014 33cl bottle in Bintan, Indonesia. Not the first time I had tried this, but it is pretty much the Indonesian staple pilsner. Not much aroma. Amber in colour with a good white coloured head which quickly disappears. Pretty run of the mill pilsner - refreshing for the climate. Best enjoyed locally.

Bottle 0,33ltr: Golden colored brew with almost no bitter taste at all, some sweety malty hints. There are better South-East Asian Lagers to like, this one is for the tick.

Clear golden with white head. Corn, rotten bread, cardboard, sweet grains and candy, light lemon. Sickly sweet. Pretty bad stuff, would not drink
More than one.

Bottle everywhere in Bali. Rated at Warung Pantai in Amed. Standard golden lager pour. Sweet malty aroma - again, standard. Taste is what you'd expect. Similar to a Tsingtao in that it's full-bodied and not as light as some macro lagers. Not as good as Tsingtao though. It's all that's on offer most places though so could do worse. Better than other Balinese options - Anker for one. As far as macro lagers go, it's not bad at all.
