Has a smoothly bitter taste, a soft malt and hops scent and sparkles perfectly. This highly malted beer is considered to be an excellent lager both at home and abroad
This beer is also brewed at "Plzensky Prazdroj (SABMiller)" in Plzen, Czech Republic.

Bottle, soft malty lager. Good Czech style perhaps a bit lighter than Budvar but still an enjoyable brew, sweet malt and fruity hops on the finish.

I enjoyed the dark Kozel a lot, so my hopes were fairly high. I wasn’t disappointed: clear, deep gold, generous foamy head that leaves a lacy glass. Solid malty nose, well rounded palate with all of the things you expect to taste in a good quality pale lager-- a malty, bitter, and refreshing mouthful.

500ml bottle. Darkish gold with thin tight white head. Bit of a sickly pale malt aroma, but ok in mouth and then some hop bitterness. Not overly wonderful, but for some reason I really like. Has some biscuity malt too.

Bottled. Good, simple, clean tasty Pilzen with a clear Saaz flavour. Colour is golden orange, head is thick but disappears way too quickly, though.

Bottle. 1-2cm white head dissipates quickly. Aroma has very slight floral hint. Taste is somewhat sweet; light, and refreshing. An average pils; easy to drink but not outstanding in any area.

JonMoore (1895) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2005
Bottle. Golden colour with 1cm white head. Malt and floral hops in the aroma. Sweet, grassy, hoppy taste, with some light malts and a fairly bitter finish. Medium bodied. A pretty good pilsner.

Is this a lager or a pilsener? Bottle. Bland lager aroma. Clear gold body with steady and wide visible carbonation. Thin white head with excellent lace. Head is mostly diminishing. Just prior to having this beer I had a Zlatorog Premium (Slovenia), which was maltier, fuller bodied and with more bite. This is smoother, creamier frankly, more innocuous. But, I agree, with a point more for appearance and a point omre for palate, Kozel Premium beats it out slightly, although not sure that I would choose it over the Zlatorog. This is a very basic beer that may go well with spicy food but that really doesn’t provide more functionality than that.

piscator34 (1995) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 17, 2005
Medium gold in colour with lots of carbonation. Good aromas of honey-like malt, and both grassy and floral hops. That floral note is especially nice. The flavor is a bit of a letdown after the aroma, with more corse grassy notes entering the lightly malted mix, but the bitterness is at a good level for this style of beer. Overall, a fairly good pilsner.

On draught at U cerneho vola in Prague: Golden colour, medium-sized firm white froth, clear but very shy malty and slightly hoppy nose, sweetish and slightly hoppy taste, distinctive light hoppy aftertaste. Good, but not overwhelming.......

Bottle at Atlas One Café. What’s with the 3.34 average? Man, you guys are easy to please. Pours a bubbly amber with an average size fizzy white head. Very, very mild aroma of yeast, malt and citrus. Flavour consists of grain, malt and sugar and is also very mild. I must have got the one bottle they left the hops out of? It has a slightly unpleasant aftertaste. Overall, another bland and boring "International Lager". Yawn.
