Golden Pheasant

Beer: Golden Pheasant, “The Original Slovak Beer”
Brewery: Pivovar Zlaty Bazant
Style: Czech Pilsner
ABV: 5.0%


 Serving Style: Bottle
Glassware: Pilsner glass
Drinking Establishment: Kerensa’s apartment
Primary Consumer: Kerensa



Sight: Slightly hazy honey body with a very thin white head.

Smell: Overpowering metallic scent, then sweet cereal and bread. A very faint waft of rose, too.

Flavor: Honey, malt, bread, and water. If you let it sit long enough, a slight floral hop taste develops.

Feel: Surprisingly full body with excellent carbonation. Extremely easy to get down.

Concluding Remark: Nothing remarkable to conclude. While the mouthfeel is pretty freakin’ great,  I wouldn’t pick up this Golden Pheasant, straight from the heart of Slovakia, unless I was in a bar in Bratislava. It might have been a solid beer at one point, but the brewery was bought by Heineken in 1997, and we all know how good Heineken is.
