Zlaty Bazant Releases New Wheat Beer

Golden Pheasant Wheat BeerWheat beer fans in Slovakia can now buy local. Zlaty Bazant, Slovakia’s most popular beer, has released its first wheat beer called Zlaty Bazant Wheat. It’s made with 50% wheat malt, 45% barley malt, and a hint of caramel malt. Like most wheat beers, it’s top fermented and unfiltered. Percentage wise, it’s a little on the low side at 4% ABV. Grab a 500 ml bottle or find one of the 200 or so bars that serves it on tap. Let’s hope this step outside of the pilsener world is just one of many.
