3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I would put the dark lager of Zlaty Bazant a tick lower than the original lager ...
this brew is in the classic Slovakian dark style, rather dry, medium bodied and with a surprising lack of roasty notes ... well brewed, but lacks a bit of originality ...

Great on the train with some cheese and dark bread. My cousins thought that I was crazy going shopping for beers the day before we left Bratislava but I was not about to pay train prices for drinks on a 5.5 hour train jaunt. Glad I grabbed four of these. For a darker brew this one still had that lighter body. Maybe I am refering to this due to the fact that I have been drinking my share of impy stouts in the last weeks.

Very dark red, almost black. Pleasantly malty aroma. Very richly roasted burnt maltswhich evolve in the mouth to sweeter maltiness and finally ending as walnuts. Well balanced lager.

Reminds me of many Porters. It’s sweet, and has a nice finish. I’d keep this in my fridge if I could get it.

This Golden Pheasant is dark brown with a nice head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and a light sweetness. I find the same notes in the flavour too together with notes of caramel and a hint of licorice. It’s a nice Dunkel.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2007 Very fine dunkel. Creamy, very dark head over almost pitch black body. Slight coffee flavour, maybe a bit too thin indeed but very refreshing and relaxing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a clear, reddish brown with a fizzy head that dissipates in no time. Aroma of sweetish, roasted malt. Medium-bodied completely dominated by sweet, roasted malt and a discreet hoppiness making a nicely harmonious beer. 200806
