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.

Editors 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.

thirstyrabbit (1742) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 27, 2010
Can, 5%. The text printed on the top of the can says its 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.

rand (1490) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 8, 2010
Can 50 cl from Casino Supermercado in Finestrat (Spain). Golden pale fizzing low. Aroma a bit malty and slightly hoppy. Taste rather of grain, weak body, sweetness and bitterness do not go out. Just aqueous, the end is more dry. No spreading. Nothing exciting.
