Too big bottle (62 cl) that was a gift (?) from my uncle. Pours extreme clear and light straw yellow with a one finger white head that disappears ay once. Chemical aroma, perfeume taste and very very watery. When you see beers with "internatioal quality" on the front label and on the back it says that the main ingredient is air.... just run.

This is by far the most ubiquitous beer in Indonesia and probably the country’s best lager. Ok body and bitterness. Lacks skunkiness and very refreshing when super cold. Good for weather near the equator

Shared 11.2 bottle. Pours a clear pale golden color with a minuscule white head. Taste and smells like a standard macro-produced pale lager.

labeerinthum (545) - Milano, ITALY - SEP 3, 2016
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso ritrova l’orzo. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma ha una discreta resistenza. La grandezza delle bollicine è medio-fine. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Le bollicine sono fini. La carbonazione è media. Il colore è giallo ambrato. Il corpo è medio. L’amaro è moderato. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è corta. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale è pulito e semplice. In bocca l’aroma riporta sentori di cereali.

In Bali at the Mai - Mai bar and restaurant with Audrie and Marissa, real thirsty for a beer and had to settle for Bintang ! Pours a dark clear gold pour with a white head ! Nose is flat ! Taste is grainy and grainy ...., not even thirst quenching . As bad as our own pilsners back at home ! Quaff Score 3 / 10

Distinctly sweet - no real substance to it - one was enough - best drunk with spicy food, icy cold and quickly in Bali where it suits the climate and food.

Maits (158) - ESTONIA - AUG 11, 2016
Golden clear colored beer with some white head which vanished quickly. Aroma is metallic and little hay. Light bodied lager. Taste is watery and grassy. Suitable gold beer for a hot sunny day.

invinoveritas (116) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2016
33cl bottle served cold. Pours a fizzy pale golden with a mild head. Faint aroma with a fairly inoffensive taste - notes of hay and some citrus to finish. Fizzy and watery palate but quite refreshing.

Hard to say someting more about this beer than it taste like sweet, sparkling water. Still - sometimes in burning Indonesian sun, it feels good to drink any cold beer, and this one is easiest to get, expensive, but still - one of most popular.

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 14, 2016
Jan. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle from Prosi Exotic supermarket, Vienna. First rating of Indonesia for me. It poured golden body with a tiny head. Grainy and interestingly, a bit peppery aroma. Flavor was sweetish corny, lightly soapy and grainy. Medium bodied for a pale lager. Slightly sweet, grainy and dusty finish. Not that bad, just boring.
