Generally just named Zlaty Bazant (zlatý bažant = golden pheasant), it may also be known by the names 12%, Golden Pheasant, Premium, or Premium Imported
A Golden Pheasant in a field of ripened barley has always been a sign of a rich and bountiful harvest.
Zlaty Bazant is one of Slovakia’s best selling beers.

Golden Pheasant is a Slovakia Pilsner and an overall good example of a Pilsner. It is easy to drink. My Golden Pheasant was serves in a tall slender Golden Pheasant mug (don’t you love proper glassware) filled to the 500 ml mark. It is aggressively carbonated but did not form a persistant head. Easy to drink, interesting malt character for a pilsner. You can taste some hop flavors too. Overall, an excellent, drinkable, wet beer. I order it frequently and enjoy it everytime. Better on draught than in bottles.

Bottled. I must say one of very few light pilseners I enjoy.

On tap at the Czech Inn Dublin. Pours a darker gold with a full white head. Aroma is sour mash and grapes. Taste is sweet malt, hops and a nice mellow end. Impressed.

i like this beer, but it is better from tap, as from bottle or can. shortly, this beer must be fresh. kelt, zlaty bazant, heineken and amstel are my favorite beers

Smells of Pils malt sweetness and spicy Saaz-like hops with some obvious skunking (green bottles!!). Still not bad though. The flavor is right there also, first the malts make themselves known, but then the minerally hop bitterness comes in and gives the beer a drying impression. Overall, not that much different that some other green bottle Pils’, but maybe not so one-dimensional as Urquell and a bit smoother on the palate. Underrated.

0,5L green bottle, from Systembolaget Luleĺ Sweden. Fluffy head which diminishes on the golden amber body, only a thin spotted layer is left. Scents of hops, grains, citric, apple, and malt. Taste; hops, grains, lots of malts, herbs and spices. Mouthfeel is good, and carbonation does not disturb, and it’s not watery. Ends with bread, roasted malts, dough, and only faint hints from cardboard. Overall a quality czech pilsener. Shared at home with my wife while she cooked salmon with lemon pepper and basil.

Thick head dissipates fairly quick. Malty and slightly sweet aroma. Sweet and full bodied taste settles to a slightly more moderate finish. Fairly typical for a pilsner. Very enjoyable.

(Zlatý Bažant 12% (Golden Pheasant)) Can 500ml at home, poured into a glass tankard, ABV 5% Deep golden yellow colour on the body, with a small and quite thick white head sitting on top. Good retention I’d say. Light lacing left behind after the foam has collapsed. Sweet, malty aroma, along with a nice enough for me aroma of red apples. Taste is also malty, sweet, some grass, slightly fruity with apples or apple juice, nicely bitter on the aftertaste with the bitterness lasting for quite long. Medium thin body, a bit low on the carbonation but still on a good level. Overall quite nice beer, pleasantly drinkable, I wouldn’t mind more of this.
