COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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°.

DanielBrown (3912) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2013
Can from Romanian shop, Cape Hill, Birmingham. Pale, no head. Has a bit of sweetness and stickiness, but overall a bit of a watery flavour. Hints at intensity, like a taxi driver at 3am; but ultimately benign.

50cl can on the ferry from Starigrad to Split (bought in a supermarket near the ferry terminal). Lightly malty aroma. Pretty standard pale lager. Drinkable in the sun, but quite boring. [Backlog: Tasted 2009-06-09]
