UPDATED: MAR 20, 2008 Nice white head that goes away pretty quickly. Aroma of nice floral hops mostly, with a tad bit of Moravian malt sweetness in their too. Nice. Flavour is almost identical to the aroma but with a tad bit more emphasis on the bitter Saaz hops. It’s my kind of Pils, in that the sweet, almost fruity malts prevent an overly-dry, hoppy finish and undertone to the beer. A very nice aftertaste of those pils malts, with a hint of Saaz. A decent one over-all IMHO, eminently drinkable, as a good pilsener should be. Worth a try if you’re into the Bohemian Pilsner, which I am. Don’t be put off by the low percentile.

ABV 5%. Atractive label and a nicely embossed bottle - four of the small pheasants around the neck. This poured a well-carbonated medium gold colour, along with a foamy white head of moderate size. Some better than average lacing rsulted from the head, and the aroma was faintly hopped. Taste was nicely bitter. Mouthfeel was clean and smooth, with an agreeable aftertaste. I enjoyed this one. drabmuh (194) - Maryland, USA - NOV 24, 2010
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. auvajs (144) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 12, 2011
Bottled. I must say one of very few light pilseners I enjoy. Bierkrug (2129) - - MAR 12, 2013
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 BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2013
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. djoeye (4607) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2013
0,5L green bottle, from Systembolaget Luleå 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. tbopslt (354) - New York, USA - DEC 20, 2013
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.
