Bintang Pilsener Beer

A visit to Indonesia will not be complete if I had yet to taste its locally brew beer, Bintang Pilsener Beer.

Bintang is made or water, sucrose, barley and malts. Its alcohol content is slightly lower at 4.7%. It also has the expiry date stamped on the back sticker and I reckon it has 1 year shelf life.

Bintang pours to a clear light golden coloured brew. It is pale in appearance and small fizzy white head. Very mild hop flavour with limited malt profile. It feels like drinking a diluted beer. Clean finish with no standout flavour.
