Eructoblaster (3121) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2004
Bottle - 500ml. Dark gold color similar to the one of the Pilsner Urquell. Average carbonation and nice white foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with grainy/bready notes. Its hoppy taste is OK but very unidimensional. Mouthfeel leaves a more than decent bitter aftertaste. Basically, this is a good beer, and I was enough fortunate to get a non-deteriorated sample (green bottle).

Aroma is like Cream of Rice and brown sugar - first impression is that it’s nice to come across any Eastern Bloc brew that doesn’t smell skunky! Great rust color with lots of bubbles clinging to the side of the glass - but the head and bubbly appearance fall flat after a minute or so. Nevertheless, mouthfeel remains well-carbonated though at the same time rather syrupy. The flavor of this beer really doesn’t differ much from the excellent aroma, but in a professional sense the taste of a beer should differ in that it possesses more "zing" than the aroma, lest the taste should fall flat. Well, the flavor of this beer possesses no "zing", but nevertheless Golden Pheasant shouldn’t be slighted as a totally bad beer. Just that the taste is rather flat and perfumey; and sadly, the skunkiness missing from the aroma reappears in the flavor itself.

Yet another green bottled lager from Europe. Of course the skunk aroma hit me right away. Has a bright gold coloring with a very thin head. The aroma has a little skunk with dirt and cooked carrots. The taste is a a fairly light metallic tinge. It also has celery and a little bit of pepper in the finish.

presario (4709) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 31, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2005 Dark gold with a thick white head. Aroma is light hops. Malty and zesty body. Flavour is slightly salty with a light hop finish. Finish also has a tinge of spice.

Totally a summer beer. Reminds me of fresh mown grass. More sour than sweet. Tastes like a premium-grade Bud. Slightly bitter aftertaste!

jfm (1724) - Holbćk, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2004
Golden color with a white head. The taste is a earthy and thin body with notes of corn. Finishes with a slight grassy hoppy note.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 13, 2004
Golden color, white head vanished quickly. Sweet and fruity aroma, notes of hops can be noticed. Thin bodied and somehow watery palate. Starts with mild malt flavor, ends with drying and slightly bitter hops. Basic pilsner, with more body this could have been better.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2004
golden yellow with a scant bubbles. Little head to speak of. Malty smell and a taste similar to pilsner urquell except more smooth (or watery). Sharp aftertaste is startling after the smooth throat.

Cornfield (5552) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2004
Nice golden color with plenty of carbonation and a frothy, lasting head. Unfortunately, it didn’t go too far in flavor. Mildly malty with the barest hint of hopping in the finish. I suspect this is lightened with rice and, by the taste, includes corn as well. I was left with a tinny taste in my mouth.

Sammy (8948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2004
Another unimpressive LCBO import. Lighty saaz hopped. Malty sweet, dry and sour finish, creamy. Fizzy
