From Bali to Britain: Indonesia's favourite beer has arrived in the UK for the first time.

Imported by Kingfisher Beer Europe the brew is a 4.7 per cent ABV Pilsner-style lager.

The company is hoping it will tap into the trend for Pan-Asian food, such as Vietnamese and Korean dishes, and the popularity of authentic world beers.

"Whilst the industry continues to explore craft beer, there is clearly significant demand for premium, authentic, easy-drinking world beers," said Damon Swarbrick, chief executive. "We believe Bintang is perfectly suited to meet this demand."

The brand is owned globally by Heineken and was first launched over 85 years ago.

Last month Kingfisher launched an Indian cider in the form of Peacock, specifically designed to go with curry.
