I believe Negara means black but instead the color is a Dark brown. The head was light, wispy and fleeting.

The scent is very grainy and sweet with malt and light roasted aromas.

The taste has a chocolate malt flavor with a backbone of grainy malts. Light roasted nut and toasted bread flavor are also apparent. There's a lot of carbonation feel on the tongue which makes it crisp but watery. A truer taste, one without so much carbonation would be stellar but may not serve the purpose of a refreshing dark lager.

Clear, dark amber colored beer. Good carbonation. Decent head.

Faint, tangy sweet, dark beer smell.

Tangy sweet and bitter. Overall it is pleasant. Not fantastic. Tastes better cold.

Tart. Bitter. Carbonation is a little sharp. Finish is good, long, and bitter.

A decent, affordable beer. Not for special occasions. Something a little different to session with. Or a good beer to go with fast food.
