Pours gold with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows grassy hops, banana, vegetable notes, sweet cereal and cardboard.
More vegetable notes as a flavours along with lemon characters and cereal/cardboard notes again.
Could use more carbonation, seems a little flat.

Bottle at Pelangi, Amsterdam, Netherlands

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high head that has good retention properties and only died down a bit.
S: Light to moderate aromas of adjunct malts are present in the nose-corn stands out in particular.
T: Like the smell, the taste is a little sweet and has flavors of corn and adjunct malts along with a very slight amount of bitterness from the hops.
M: It feels light-bodied and a little smooth on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but isn't very flavorful and seems a little bland.

Bottle of 330 ml, bought in the Netherlands where it's imported. ABV 4,7%. Ingredients are water, malts, sucrose, barley and hops.

Pours a golden yellow colour, with two fingers of soapy white head, good retention. No lacing left behind. Lots of activity in the glass.

My nose is a bit blocked, but I only get an aroma of your typical pilsner, meaning some light hops smell along with some malts
.
NIce crisp taste, refreshing, very light bitterness on the finish. Quite malty.I thou Nothing really exciting, but quite good nevertheless.

Medium thin body and average carbonation.

Overall not bad. Highly drinkable, although not really a pilsner but closer to a lager.

A: Pours a light yellow color with a decent head that fades to bits of lacing.

S: Mild aroma that is sort of musty with light citrus and bit of malt sweetness and grain.

T: taste is fairly bland, with light citrus, some malt sweetness and grain.

F: Light body, slightly crisp and smooth and a bit sticky. Pretty bland.

O: This is a boring Lager. Best served ice cold on a hot day.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Super carbonated mostly clear with hints of a yellow tint, topped with a fast falling crown of large bubbles much like fresh piss.

S: Weak floral and malt notes with a distinct lager yeast.

T: Sweet sugared corn and rice adjuncts, an almost lost hop and floral reference smothered in bubbled carbonation.

M: A barely there bikini body and muted lingering hoppiness.

O: Serve super cold with no lofty expectations, this beer prides itself in being a water substitute, drink it like it was such and remember to pack sun block, for where there is Bintang, good times follow! Tastes great after a unexpected mouth full of ocean.
