3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. It pours a clear, golden body topped by a finger thick off-white head leaving lacings. Pleasant grassy nose with a spiced hop touch. Malty base. It’s smooth and nicely carbonated, with some bitterness in the flavor. Grassy, fruity hops and a malty touch. Some bitterness in the end, a bit low levels. A nice and quite tasteful one, pleasant on the palate and quenching. 110304

Can at HogTownHarry Fest 08. OK lager. Bit thin and horrible to be honest. But you know what? It’s a lager.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2004 Bottled (ABV 5.0%, label "Golden Pheasant Premium", BB 12/2004)
Beautiful goldem with white head, lace. Strong hoppy Saaz-nose, slightly dunk. Flavor is more sweet malty than bitter hoppy. Medium-balanced body, bitter hops come in aftertaste. (4/3/6/3/11 2.7)
Re-rated, bottle (BB 07/2005, alc. 4.6%, label "Golden Pheasant Premium")
Lager color, creamy mostly vanishing white head. Fresh "Urquell"-nose when you open the bottle, then a bit metallic. Smooth malty palate with a good balance from hops. (7/2/6/4/13 3.2)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Deep gold colour, low visible carbo. Saazy, grassy aroma with bready malts underneath and a slight mineral note. Moderate bitterness with a hint of something iron/mineral/chalk - not entirely sure which but something alkalide anyway. Some grassiness. Finish starts wet, but dries out...and yes I know that sounds rather self-evident but I'm talking about the palate not the physical impression of liquid passing over your tongue then ceasing to do so.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear golden body with minimal white head. Aroma is sweet (corn?), apple juice, slightly skunky. Taste is very mild -- medium sweet, bit of grassy in finish, and I can swear that I taste the alcohol. Light-medium body.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
25 oz bottle. Clean aroma with a hint of corn, a bit of grass, and the promise of hop. Brassy color with a vigorous white head that lasts. Starts medium mouthfeel, smooth, medium carbonation, and decent amount of hop. It’s a pilsener. Better than any number of pissy yellow lagers; not up to Urquell. Nice crisp, bitter finish, so it is up to the style.
