Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2005
Poured from a green 1pt 0.9 fl oz bottle. Golden color with a thin and quickly dissapating white head. Minimal lacing. Unmistakable skunk odor hides any hint of hops or malt. Flavor is excruciatingly plain and almost nonexistent except for the aforementioned skunk. Considering that I have much better stuff in the fridge, it might just get poured down the drain.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Bottle, 500 ml from BevMo. Pours light amber and clear with a large creamy white head that diminished mostly leaving nice lacing. Aroma is bready, with hints of citrus and floral hops. Flavor is pleasant mostly if somewhat underwhelming, crisp and sweet with a nice hop character featuring a light spiciness and subtle herbs. Thin body and gentle carbonation make this one an easy drinking pilsner, suitable for summer thirst quenching.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2005
Blonde dorée, apparence translucide et filtrée. Grains et houblons épicés, une dose de sulfure et de houblon floral rappelant une Kolsch. Corps d’épaisseur semi mince, finale mi-sčche et faiblement houblonnée. Bouteille, LCBO, Janvier 2005.

mjg74 (2854) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Bottled. Pours a fairly deep golden color. Fairly sizable head. Aroma is quite grainy. A little bit of a sweet malty aroma as well. Slightly sweet grainy flavor. Some maltiness going on. A little bit of a bitter finish. I think the pheasant is quite pleasant.

Bottle. Light golden straw color with a white head. Light noble hop aroma. Clean, dry flavor. Refreshing. Not much going on - light malts, light hops.

joergen (23865) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2005
Bottled. Golden coloured with a white head. Aroma of malts and corn with notes of hops. Sweet flavour of malts and corn with hoppy notes.

ElGaucho (2307) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Bottle. Strong euro pils aroma. Gold body with small particalia and steady plentiful visible carbonation. Small white head, mostly diminishing. Nice lace. Dry flavor. No blatant flaws but no outstanding qualities either. I like the logo and packaging; the etched pheasant logo on the glass is sharp. Unfortunately, the product inside does not live up to it. Disappointing.

asheft (2740) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2005
[on tap in Bratislava] Bright, dark yellow with a pristine, lacy cover. Fresh noble hops aroma, perfectly balanced with malt. Hops dominates the flavour with a sweet, sugary malt and a bit of that "Chinese tea" flavour that I sometimes find in pilsners. Low bittering. Excellent session beer with good overall balance. Light to medium body with lowish carbonation.

pivnizub (9437) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2005
Golden colour, firm,white froth; thin hoppy (herbal,grassy) nose with some grainy notes; bitter-malty beginning, thin bodied, short thin bitter-sweet aftertaste with some unpleasant metallic/medical(?) notes. This golden pheasant turns out to be a grey vulture........

shrubber85 (9137) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Bottle. Sweet grainy aroma. Dark brown color with little head. Sweet dark malt and raisin flavor. An enjoyable enough beer.
