Port Klang, Selangor, Malaysia, RM5.60
Well I'm in Malaysia so it's time for a Malaysian beer, in this case Jaz, the beer. The name reminds me of long ago when I was atrociously strutting my stuff at an underage nightclub with a couple of mates. One of buddies was approached by a girl and somewhat originally asked if he was wearing "Jazz"; ever since I've been amused by DT's response of "No babe, Old Spice". Anyway back to Jaz the beer, it's made by the Napex Brewery in Port Klang and that's about it.
It's a relatively clear and light and a bright gold colour. There were lots of big airy bubbles and a frothy head that quickly collapsed into nothing. The nose isn't particularly exciting; there are traces of Weetbix and an interesting soapy/sherbety element, that reminds me a little of the 'talc' aroma you find in white wine. The palate is even less 'exciting' then the nose and doesn't really taste of anything; if I was pushed I'd say maybe there's the slightest trace of citrus. Jaz Beer is typical boring Asian larger; while nothing's particularly wrong with it, it certainly has nothing to recommend it; a total non-event.Visit brewery website.
