Can from Maruhn. For a second world pale lager, this isn’t too bad. Decent grain flavor and frothy head. Faint aroma, but not unpleasant. Pretty good for SE Asia.

After my merry-go-round from Belgian Tripels, to handfuls of IPA/DIPAs from upstate NY to California, then German Weisse's and British Ale's, I found myself craving the standard. An idiot I hold close to my heart once told me: "Sometimes you just gotta have McDonalds, you know?"

How pretentious for me to say, and of course this is no Micky Ds, but for your basic adjunct lager/pilsner, this will do. I came across this easy-going gem on a trip to Bali, Indonesia, and was pleasantly surprised by how it filled exactly what I needed in that kind of humid, tropical weather; paired with local flavors, ofc (Babi guling!). Good fizz and fair amounts of malt. Very light beer that pours a lighter shade.

Clear golden with a medium sized white head. Aroma is crisp and sweet grain, vegetables, some floral and herbal notes. Taste is light to medium sweet boiled vegetables and crisp grain, light herbal bitterness. Light bodied, average carbonation.

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.
