0.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
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.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
33cl glass-bottle. Very pale in the glass, grainy nose. The beer starts grainy-sweet, slightly bitter. The bitter notes become more intense, but also a sweet note appears that taste like added sugars which ruins the whole taste.
The aftertaste is sweet and hoppy. Slightly grainy.
--> without the sugar ok, so awful! --> 4/10/3/3

Bottle 0.33l. Pours clear golden with low head. Aroma is slightly sour, metallic, corn. Not good. Taste is light sweet, no bitterness, corn, malt. Watery beer with no distinguished flavour. Maybe ok on a beach in Indonesia.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pale yellow color with no head. Typical aroma of a Pale Lager, but a little stronger. Light body, totally flat carbonation, the taste is sweet with a very tiny part of bitterness. Palate ok. Light, maybe refreshing, but I didn’t drink it in Indonesia during a sunset on the beach, but in a cold German November. Drinkable (in Indonesia).

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(Flasche) Es hat eine pfirsichgelbe Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist würzig, süß und getreidig. Der Geschmack ist wässrig, harzig, medium bitter und prickelnd. Im Nachgeschmack ist nur noch ein moosartiger Rest der Bittere übrig, vergleichbar mit der ablecken einer Dachziegel.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
For those of you who are worried about what the fate of your breweries after Sweden finally becomes a Muslim state, Bintang is here to prove that Islam and (at least ordinary) beer can live together. This has a typical aroma of pale lager, malty and sweet, with a whiff of an ashtray. Icteric yellow colour with a bubbly white head. The flavour is a lot nicer than expected. Crisp, well-balanced between subtle maltiness and subtle bitterness. Plenty of carbonation. Must be great for the castigating heat of Java.

difficult to stay objective given the vast amounts of good memories associated with this beer. Drank it a lot when I was in indonesië. Refreshing pils, obviously nothing special.
