This is a fantastic world class beer.
A great example of a Pilsener. Golden crystal clear pour, soft white fine foam head. Very nice hoppy aroma. It’s malty flavour with a edge of fine hop ends very clean. Seek this one out. 17wojownik (546) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 20, 2016
Zacne, eleganckie jasne piwko pilsner w zielonej butelce. Jeden ze sztandarowych przedstawicieli gatunku, można się wypowiadać w samych superlatywach. Typowa dwunastka - zawartość ekstraktu. Bardzo dobry, chmielowy aromat, duże wysycenie CO2, orzeźwiające, pijalne. Trzeba je znać! Gintas99 (1) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - OCT 4, 2001 does not count

On tap in Slovakia this is a world class beer. Its too bad that its shelf life is short when bottled so it leaves people with the wrong impression. This beer needs to be fresh and consumed within 3 months of being brewed. Check the expiry date which is usually a year after is was made. If it is older than 6 months dont bother. (This is the same for most czech/slovak beers!)

Aroma: some sulphur with a floral noble hop nose
Appearance: Golden with a beautiful lacy white head
Taste:salty sweet malty taste which a pilsner must possess to be identified as Bohemian. Grainy
Palate: light bodied and slightly slick with a wonderful hop numbing on the tongue to finish.
Overall: IMO the world standard for Pilsner Beer. I have never had a better Pilsner.

Excellent Slovak lager! Let us please remember that this is not intended to be a dry German Pils like Jever or Bitburger, but a full-bodied Bohemian lager. Fresh aroma of malt and hops. Deep golden color. Good white foam retention. The taste is very clean and malty sweet as it is intended to be. This beer is very similar to Pilsner Urquell, but perhaps not quite as bitter. HIghly drinkable and very satisfying. A defining example of one of the world´s great beer styles, Bohemian Lager. Those who are not familiar with this particular beer style should not be rating Zlatý Bažant. SN11 (66) - USA - OCT 2, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2008 Dark green Bottle. Talk about an underrated beer. This goes down smoothly. The flavor is gentle, slightly sweet but malty with distinctive signature. Well ballanced, not as hoppy and carbonated as some other pills. The head disappears rather quickly leaving little or no lacing. I’ve had this hundreds of times and it never seems to become stale, tastes as great as the first time I tried it. This is my favorite pilsner next to Urquell. krazy77 (3) - tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 10, 2007 does not count
