Brought this beer back about a year ago whilst visiting Budapest. The beer poured a clear golden yellow with initial foamy head that is quickly dissipating and not leaving much of a lace. The scent is mostly a grainy malt. The taste has almost a sweet corn base with slight grass like hop. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a beer and I like beer.

The waitress at the bar in Budapest gave my friend and me a funny look when we ordered Arany Aszok, and now I know why. I think it is Hungary's version of Milwaukee's Best. Very cheap and not very good. I would definitely spend a few extra Forints and order a Dreher.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

one of the most nondescript beers ive ever had. pours as average looking as can be, clear pale yellow with a fading one inch white head and some rising bubbles. smells like all the other pale euro brews out there, mild malt profile, not hops at all, and a touch of the can it came in. flavor is the same as the nose when its cold. becomes less palatable as it warms, which is pretty quick during the hungarian summer. mouthfeel is light but tummy turning in a way that only a cheap can of lousy beer can be, carbonation is average. overall even though this is cheap and widely available, im not sure ill ever drink another one. there just isnt much to this.

Bought in Budapest

A: Pours a light golden body with three fingers of white fluffy head. Retention is pour and has minimal lacing.

S: Faint malt notes and straw grains. Smells typical of a poor lager.

T: As thought, notes of malts and straw come through. Not the most pleasing of tastes.

M: Light bodied and medium carbonation. I felt the carbonation was to high for this, as the texture was very froathy. Aftertaste consisted of off straw like notes.

O: Even for the 1.20 this cost me, I wouldn't buy it again.

A: Transparent amber red, soda like carbonation, quickly disappating, 2 finger head.
S: Has a sour quality, sweet, syrupy, cherry.
T: Not very sweet. However it does remind me of a soda if a soda wasn't sweet. Alcohol isn't very present. Most dominant flavor is the malt, but it's quite mellow.
M: Mild sting, slightly astringent.
O: Not great but drinkable.

A- pours a clear bright golden color. Poured into a pilsner glass, the foam holds very short. For a style that i consider to be boring, it is boring.
Smell - Grains, malts, skunk, corn
Taste-dry and bitter
I admit that i expected more,and i got less.

The beer is a pale European Lager from Szeged, Hungary.
Very light in color and smell.
The taste is OK but nothing spectacular. Pale malts dominate the weak palate. There is hardly any hop aroma present.
Considering the prize I did not expect much and was not disappointed by what I got. It is drinkable but nothing noteworthy.

Had this Hungary out of a can:
A - Poured a light golden color that produced a small white head and some lacing effects

S - Some malty scents

T - Some malts and hops, but also had some of the metallic tastes

M - A light bodied, light carbonated beer

D - A decent beer. When I'm in other places I drink their beer. This one kind disappointed me.

3/5  rDev +14.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Light golden colour with large carbonation bubbles, small, but stable head and some lacing.

The smell is a bit sweet malty and sour, some hints of lemon. Taste is better, it feels sweetish bitter with mild bittery and slightly metallic aftertaste.

Mouth is fizzy and quite thin. It is quite drinkable - this beer is comparably cheap in Budapest and I expected it will be much worse.
