Bintang “Pilsner”
330ml green glass bottle, “BEST BEFORE BB190122”

Notes: Labeled “FOR EXPORT ONLY”. Clear deep gold/brass in color beneath a short head of bright white. Surprisingly good head retention and lacing! Aroma of basic dull, grainy malt and generic hops. FYI, this is an adjunct beer with “Sucrose” added. Flavor follows with no exception. Short and dry finish. Medium-light in body and crisp. Overall quite dull and boring.

330ml bottle in a hotel in Surabaya, at INR65,000 the cheapest on the menu. I had to check the label as I initially thought the waiter had brought me a non-alcoholic version. Very little to recommend here other than the fact it can be gulped down like water, taste not dissimilar to water in fact. Boasting the colour of weak tea and a rapidly diminishing foamy head, this drink entices the nose with very little at all. The tasting doesn’t disappoint, as the hope of any flavour is dashed by its soapy blandness. If you’ve been surfing all day this stuff is probably great, but I hadn’t, and it wasn’t.

Looks and feels like most standard, malty American lagers. Bland malt smell, head thins into a broken lace. Looks like apple juice or urine, tastes malty with a metallic-tinge and a slightly chemical, soapy aftertaste. In the part of Indonesia where I stayed, it was the most abundant and affordable alcoholic beverage, and was a decent thirst quencher. Avoid otherwise.

Decanted from a 11.2 oz (330 ml) can into a custom taster pint; best by 30 July 2019.
A: Pours a nearly clear, dark golden color with a less than one finger, briefly foamy white head, no serious retention, and little or no lacing.
S: Picked up a butyric acid aroma throughout. Hard to smell anything other than that.
T: Dry. Almost an apple flavor, very light malty and grainy with low bitterness.
M: Light bodied with very low carbonation. Drinks smoothly but slightly astringent.
O: Off aroma of butyric acid is pretty much a deal breaker. This was also not an old can, based on the best by dating, so no excuse. Basically, a very low end Pilsener. Might be my lowest rating ever.
