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°.

yngwie (16424) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2010
Can, courtesy of Dedollewaitor. A clear, quite pale golden beer with an off-white head. Weak nose with some initial notes of burnt plastic. Luckily they are soon replaced by pale malts and a hint of fruityness. Boring flavor too, pale malts and some fruityness, very low on bitterness all the way. Medium to thin mouthfeel. Drinkable indeed, but utterly boring. 100814

Can, 5%. The text printed on the top of the can says it’s brewed in Linz, Austria. Not really as golden looking as the name suggests. More like pale yellow. The aroma has corn and carrots in it. Tastes very generic. There is no bitterness in the aftertaste. Not a Bohemian Pilsner in my book.
