Pours with a clear, golden color and is topped with a generous white head with medium retention.
The aroma is dominated by malts, there are also some grains present.
The taste is pleasantly bitter and hoppy, clean and not watery. Finishes with a decent bitterness.
A nice example of what a nice pilsener tastes like.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Excellent Slovak lager! Let us please remember that this is not intended to be a dry German Pils like Jever or Bitburger, but a full-bodied Bohemian lager. Fresh aroma of malt and hops. Deep golden color. Good white foam retention. The taste is very clean and malty sweet as it is intended to be. This beer is very similar to Pilsner Urquell, but perhaps not quite as bitter. HIghly drinkable and very satisfying. A defining example of one of the world´s great beer styles, Bohemian Lager. Those who are not familiar with this particular beer style should not be rating Zlatý Bažant.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle says ’Lager’ instead of 12% but seems the same beer. Clear golden with small white head. Taste has lots of malts, with slight toasty note and some corn. Light touch of lemon and hops. Taste is medium sweet, with small bitter in the finish. Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Slightly one-dimensional and sweet, but better then most lagers.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle) Good looking beer, clear golden with big white head. Aroma of grassy hops and grain. Light body with good carbonation. Taste is surprisingly sweet, rather too sweet, and not a particularly malty sweetness, more sugary. There’s a lack of tartness to provide balance. There’s a reasonable amount of bitterness, but it is a little metallic and quite short-lived. Drinkable, but not a well balanced beer.
