In 1998 the Golden Brau brand started being produced, currently being the best-sold beer in Romania. The beer has a clear appearance, with a characteristic glitter and carbon dioxide pearls, having white, dense foam leaving a lacy trace on the glass. The yellow color reflects the image of golden wheat fields in the summer heat. The carbon dioxide content creates a sensation of liveliness and coolness.

Editor’s Note: This brand is also produced at other Brau Union plants, most notably Wieselburger in Austria.
ABV and Plato went from 4.8% and 11° to 5% and 11.2°.

Kita (1753) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAR 11, 2015
Can, 0.50l, shared with colleagues, courtesy of Vlad. Clear pale golden color with medium frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma is grassy, grainy, dusty and medicinal. Tastes starts light sweet malty, follows grassy with crisp and dry mouthfeel and mild bitter finish. Light body, watery texture and lively carbonation in palate. Dracula’s piss...

jc1762 (530) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 25, 2015
Poured from a can into a teku glass showing golden hues and practically translucent, very little head despite an aggressive pour. The nose shows a lot of corn and some malts. Quite a bit of alcohol in the background also. The palate is full bodied with an aggressive carbonation showing a corn-like sweetness and some malty flavors. Not very intense and no practically no bitterness at the end.

ectuohy27 (951) - ESTONIA - JAN 2, 2015
Aroma is terrible and nasty off-hops; taste is slightly better once the carbonation subsides, but still bad. no way is this is a Pilsner of any kind,let alone a Czech one. PL all around. malt is at least detectable.

Diabobale (429) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
Una pils in stile ceco prodotta in romania. Nulla di eccezionale, una birra comune ma bevibile e gradevole

luttonm (3974) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Can from Timisoara ’enjoyed’ in Belgrade with Travlr. normal yellow lager appearance, soapy foam. eggy grain aroma. Balanced enough body that tastes better, by a bit, than it smells. Cardboard some sour grain alcohol. No thanks.
