|Bintang, Pilsner (Indonesia) |
Though now owned by Heineken, Bintang has been brewed in Indonesia for over 70 years. This lager beer pours a medium gold colour with decent white head. The nose is grassy and fresh, with sweetcorn and a certain musky perfume. In the mouth it is medium-bodied with a fair balance of bitter hops and crisp, quite thirst quenching citrus fruit. Decent, if unexceptional finish to a decent if unexceptional beer. 4.8% ABV, 33cl, £1.25, Onlyfinebeer, Pierhead.
