Urks, when traveling in Indonesia, having some good beer can be a challenge. Obviously, without a century old tradition and being infused with Dutch brewing (no offense) the result cannot be top-class. That being said, Kuda Putih was the worst I tried.

Bottle. This is the lesser of the various water beers available but when cold it is not a bad option. SteveW678 (1) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2014 does not count
Was getting depressed the only local beer available in Bali was Bintang, which is definitely not to my taste. Then, after 12 days, we ate somewhere that offered Kuda Putih. What a relief! A light and clear easy to drink beer....but must be chilled. Not so nice if served a bit warmer. "Bali cold" is not cold enough. Ask for them to chill in the freezer first and you won’t be disappointed. To put this in context, my beer of choice is Tooheys Extra Dry.

620 ml green bottle, in Bali. ABV is 4.5%. Pale yellow colour, low white head. Typical green bottle "skunky" pale lager aroma, but not too bad. Some sweetish malty and grassy notes. The flavour is bland as expected, but not horrid. At least there is a hint of malts and hops, and it is not sugary sweet. Ice cold it may serve as a thirstquencher in the Indonesian heat.

Ah, the elusive Kuda Putih. I’ve seen some big ads on Java and Bali, but the beer seemed to escape me all the time. I finally stumbled across this beer in Kuta, Bali, in Warung Totemo. ABV 4.57%. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of some butter, vegetables, grain. Flavour is light sweet, light sour mash, light bitter finish with a vegetable aftertaste. Light bodied, prickly mouthfeel. A bit off-tasting.
