Purchased in Bratislava from a store. Typical pilsner/lager. It's not Budweiser.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pilsner glass. Had a golden yellow color and a clear consistency. There was a large, foamy, fairly long-lasting head. OK lacing.

S: A slightly skunky aroma with hints of hops and malt. Nothing overly special.

T: Tasted of a moderate amount of hops, malt, an earthy quality, and the aforementioned skunkiness. A very average flavor. Not offensively bad, but pretty forgettable.

M: A decent amount of carbonation with a somewhat slick finish. Light-bodied.

O: Nothing overly interesting here. Golden Pheasant is a typical, mass produced beer. There are worse examples of a Czech pilsner, but there are certainly better ones.

11.2oz green bottle purchased at the Total Wine in Spokane Valley, WA. My first Slovak beer. There’s some sort of production code stamped on the rear label, but no true freshness date. From the look of the label, I'm guessing the Slovak brewers of this beer have some serious Pilsener Urquell-envy. Maybe they were involved in brewing it when there was still such a thing as Czechoslovakia.

Poured a dark gold color verging on amber, with a small, bubbly white head that dropped quickly.

Crude, earthy malt notes and some mild floral hop scent greeted my schnozz.

What flavor there was to be had was mildly hoppy and bitter, with some earthy malt notes. No skunky taste, but not much else, either.

Fairly light bodied, with a watery mouthfeel. I think the carbonation was a little too low.

An inoffensive, but otherwise not very interesting Euro Lager. Now that I’ve tried it, I don’t think I’ll need to have another one.
