1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Another unimpressive LCBO import. Lighty saaz hopped. Malty sweet, dry and sour finish, creamy. Fizzy

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
From a sadly packaged bottle. Probably would have fared better off tap. Skunky aroma. Light amber/yellow in color. White head dissipates quickly. Medium to light bodied. Malt flavors try to sneak in. Hopping at the end is appropriate. Need a fresher sample.

From the bottle at Yeoman’s Road Pub. Hey it’s Heini and Becks in a cooler bottle. Better than both the aforementioned and I could actually see a Becks or Amstel lover admiring this, but utterly foregtable in my opinion.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled, pasteurised. Pale gold with light head. Mostly a tasteless eurolager. Didn’t match many of the Hungarian beers which says much.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2006 (Bottled, "Golden Pheasant Premium", 4.6% ABV, BBE 07/2005) Golden color with medium, mostly vanishing head. Sweetish, fruity and grassy-buttery aroma. Fruity and mildly "German" hoppy flavor with a short, buttery and slightly bitter finish. Medium-bodied, oily palate with fizzy carbonation. A quite well-balanced - although somewhat cheap and sparingly hopped - reasonably refreshing (if cold enough) pilsener. Very similar to Primator 12% Premium Lager.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweet malty aroma. Looks good in the glass - golden yellow, nice foamy head. Corn taste. It does have a light hop finish. Mildly refreshing.
