1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
330 ml can, a gift from my Indonesian-born sister-in-law. ABV is 5%. Pale yellow colour, decent head. Typical "Industrial" and sweetish pale lager aroma, notes of maize and/or other adjuncts.The flavour is far too sweet for a "pilsener", but there is at least a certain maltiness and not too many off-flavours. Very moderate hops in the finish, slightly metallic.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, bought in a corner shop in Vienna.
Pours pale golden - looks okay, actually - a big, frothy, white head with limited duration. Aroma is sweet, maize and brewing cereal. Low carbonation, thin mouthfeel. Weak flavour, but not excatcly terrible. Some metallic notes amongst the maize and (very mild) citric hops.

Bottled from Sanwah supermarket in Mestreech. Color is golden colour, thin white head. Nose is hops. Aroma has some strange hops in it. The beer is a bit too thin, but it is typical for beers brewed on trropics. Heineken should do better,

Had this at a giant seafood restaurant in Jakarta. Light yellow with a soapy white head. Not much aroma but it made up for it my not having any flavor either. Made me think of A-B Natural Light.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottled, pasteurised, 330ml, from Westholme Stores, Goring on Thames, oxon. Pale gold with fizzed white head. Thin malty lager with a sharp lemony, washing up liquid type flavour, tinny and chemical. Thin and poor, but probably Ice cold in Indonesia it would be very reasonable.
