Since it was our last full day in Indonesia I decided to get the most popular beer: a Bintang Pilsener. The beer came, just like in many southeast Asian countries, with ice and a straw. At least they didn’t pour it in yet so I was able to chuck the ice and remove the straw before I filled my glass. The 4.7 percent pilsener beer had a golden-clear look and a white, fine foamy head. It had quite a typical pilsner smell to it, sweet and hoppy. The taste was bitter sweet with a malty and bit bitter aftertaste. It tasted like a pilsner—maybe a bit boring but I got what I ordered and, in total, not a bad beer.
