This is widely considered to be the best lager brewed in Slovakia ... and rightly so ... It’s a bit like a softer copy of the Pilsner Urquell, almost the same but slightly sweeter and therefore less dry ... I remember while living in Hong Kong someone visiting had the kindness to bring me a bottle of this and I truly enjoyed it ...

My first Slovakian beer. Poured a dark yellowish gold. Good aroma that i couldn’t put my finder on. Not much head, just a ring of bubbles. Was pleasantly surprised by the taste! Citrus, a bit fruity, and a touch of sweetness. Loved it!

Koelschtrinker (17350) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 4, 2011
Recht ausgeglichen wirkt das Bier, Hopfig-herb zu Beginn, etwas vollmundiger, kräftiger, süßer und fruchtiger präsentiert es sich im Mittelteil. im Abgang wie Doppelbock beschreibt schön herb. Die einzelnen Teile des Bieres passen gut zueinander, das Bier ist süffig, vollmundig, würzig. Herrlich! Test vom 26.4.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 13,13,14,13,10,14

16oz Can, purchased at I.M. Gan - Warwick, RI. Thank god for cans. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for lately. Fresh, bright, drinkable pils! I guess if you’re dumb enough to buy this out of a green bottle, you get what you pay for. Otherwise, we’re on! Juicy, fresh, crackery, lively. Some slight aromatics and enough hop juiciness. Ah....should have bought a case.

Here’s a beer that suffers from traveling. Not as nearly as good here in North America or in bottle as the real stuff that I got from tap in Eastern Europe. Despite all that, even the bottled version is very drinkable with a smooth well balanced body with a soft, non-offensive flavor. Thumbs up...

What can i really expect from a beer that is called a golden pheasant. Maybe a golden eagle, but a golden pheseant? come on, that should be the name for a four O of malt liqour. But anyway it was fairly good, nothing stood out, but the flavors blended well, and i enjoyed it.

Pours straw color with a nice white head. Smells of dry malt, some perfume, some nice spicy hints, to9uches of fruitiness. Tastes dry and peppery with a nice underlying bitterness. Great beer!

Lagerboy (1937) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2012
Clear bright golden yellow with a proud pillowy white head. Lovely Saaz hop aroma and taste up front, backed by a ’little too sweet’ bready maltiness. Silky bittersweet finish. Yummy Bohemian Pilsener. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Cary, NC. This beer is a clear golden color with a large white head. The aroma is full of malt and hops, very inviting. The flavor has a sweet malt flavor with some hop bite. A very good Czech Pilsener.

Ar: Lagerowo, milo, mieszanka slodowosci i chmielu. Orzezwiajco. Szlachetny Lager, przyjemnie slodowy z subtelna nutka chmielu. Srednio intensywny ale swietny, gladki. Wyg: Zloty, przejrzysty, dosc klarowny, piana cienka zmienna w ziarnistosci od sredniej to ultra drobno. Doskonaly lacing. Sm: Doskonaly Lager, dosc wysoko wysycony. Slodowy z mila chemielowa nutka. Bez wad. Lekki, delikatny, aksamitnie gladki, niesamowita pijalnosc jak na Lagera, znikoma goryczka. Czolowy reprezentant gatunku. Pos: Delikanty, slodowo-chmielowy. Goryczka znikoma. Sladowy alkohol. Ehh, zeby wszystkie koncerniaki takie byly...
