Visited Indonesia 3 times over the past several years. This is the beer of choice while relaxing on the beach or a jungle hut. Just standard and boring, yet it's good when travelling in Indonesia.

Format: a standard green 330mL bottle with a pretty ordinary macro label.

Appearance: pours out a pretty nasty yellow colour with a very thin white head that dissipates almost immediately.

Aroma: a very weak aroma of cheap grains and adjuncts with some florals or vegetal notes.

Taste: again very weak with cheap adjuncts. A nasty fug is evident -which turns out to be vegetal rather than the floral - however is still very light so doesn't impact too much.

Aftertaste: the flavours drop away pretty quickly per the style. Just a throw-down, cheap macro lager.

Mouth feel: quite light in body which comes across as watery. The carbonation somehow is chunky and yet makes the beer feel a bit flat.

Overall: an okay throw-back lager but that's about it. It has been designed for the hottest of hot weather where flavour is not as important as refreshment. You can still find better for under AU$40 a case though.

The taste is sweet at first, slightly bland - lacks some bubbles. Balanced body with a tiny amount of bitterness in the finish.
Drinkable,
