Reviewed from notes taken in Summer 2014.

Served on-draught into a .5L krug in Budapest.

No bubble show forms as it's poured.

HEAD: ~2 fingers worth of white coloured froth. Okay creaminess, decent thickness. Average consistency and complexion for the style. Leaves spotty inconsistent lacing as it recedes. Above average (~3 minute) retention.

BODY: Clear pale yellow. Clean, lacking any visible yeast particulate or sediment. Obviously filtered. Average vibrance.

Appears adequately carbonated. Not a unique or special appearance by any means.

AROMA: Pilsner malts, helles malts, barley, and maybe some generic floral hop character.

I detect no overt yeasty notes, nor any off-notes or booze.

An inoffensive aroma of below average intensity.

TASTE: Pilsner malts, helles malts/Munich malt, barley. That's really it. Balance is okay at best. Cohesive enough, but not a gestalt harmonious whole of a beer. Pleasant though unremarkable.

Very simple, with no nuance or subtlety to it. To style, there are no yeasty notes or off-notes (clean ester-free lager yeast is indicated). Clean drinking, with average depth, duration, and intensity of flavour. I do like it in a general sense, but it's not going for much.

MOUTHFEEL: Smooth, wet, clean, light-bodied, slightly overcarbonated, and unrefreshing. Decent presence on the palate.

Not oily, gushed, hot, boozy, astringent, harsh, rough, or scratchy.

OVERALL: Easy to drink, but not a good beer within its style. Pretty basic fare, and not really worth trying. It's hard not to be dismissive of such a generic attempt at the style, but it's not bad for what it is.

C (2.84) / AVERAGE

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.
