2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can, 0.50l. Clear golden color with medium frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma is grainy, grassy, vegetably and mild herbal. Taste starts with light sweet grainy malt, following is fresh grassy, mouthfeel is crisp and dry, while finish is light bitter. Light body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Bland, but still drinkable...

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
13-14/08 A 0.5 l can from a CBA in Budapest. It poured golden body with small head. Grainy aroma evolves into dusty maltiness, touched with paper hops. Flavor was lightly bitter with counterbalancing honey malt sweetness, not bad, yet cheap, boring and industrial. Medium bodied with longer sweetish and lightly alcoholic(!) finish. OK for a Hungarian macro pale lager, better than most of the others tried so far, but still far from anything a beerlover would enjoy.

Sehr erfrischend, milder Geschmack, die Kohlensäure ist sehr feinperlig, trinkbar nichts besonderes

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0,5l can. Golden color and malty aroma. Taste is malty with some grassy hops. It’s drinkable and refreshing lager, nothing special, but not bad at all.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draught at Bem Étterem és Söröző, Budapest, Hungary. Poured a clear amber colour with a one-finger white foamy head that collapsed quickly. Laced OK. No carbonation. Aroma slightly of malt with a trace of hops. Taste of sweet malt with no real hops bitterness. Light body, bordering on watery. Smooth finish. Ordinary.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Canned 500ml. -from Tesco Törökbalint. Clear golden coloured, small white head, acidic corny nose. Weak malty, corn and hint of green apple with watery finish. Slightly better than Svetak but overall same crap.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
So the Hungarians make a cheap mockery of a Slovak beer. Pff. Porued a golden-yellow body with a small white head. Dusty shitty sulphury aroma, stinks to hell. Heck, this might’ve even surpassed the Svetak! Light light malty sweet taste, some sulphur... vinuous? The best descriptor of the taste is basically WTF, and it is kinda better than the Svetak in that aspect. Sulphur, corn, water. Yay.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
pale golden colour, some minimal white heat which, however promptly disappears; aroma of almost nothing - maybe some corn and artificial bittery fragrance; watery taste of corn, malt and minimal hoppy bitterness; drinkable, but nothing more
NOTE (WARNING for hungarian and slovakian beer-lovers): Despite that ’Arany Fácán’ means Zlaty Bazant in slovakian language, it has no connection with the much better slovakian beer at all! So, it’s only a marketing trick of Soproni Brewery which is more than misleading...

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can. Won’t be my favourite, that is for sure. Pale colour, medium, but weak head. Slight malty aroma with some hops, but somehow it is a bit unpleasant - for my taste. Taste is too watery, slightly malty, the hoppines is a bit stronger. Medium carbonated, light bodied. Cheap beer Nr. 175.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can from random grocery store in Rajka. Golden color with small white head. Malty aroma. Sweet malty taste. If it should be a reincarnation of old Zlaty Bazant (Arany Facan is Hungarian translation), it didn’t work out.
