Malts dominate giving body and flavour.Caramel tastes blend with the malts to produce a pilsener that stands out from the crowd.After a while a slight bitterness surfaces.All round a very desirable beer.

bluevegie (3051) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2003
Golden colour with a tinge of red, pours a decent head but doesn't seem to last. Not a lot of aroma but some hop characters. Malty taste with just a hint of bitterness on the finish. Went down easy enough.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2003
Soft hoparoma. Hoppy, grassy flavor. Bitter, hay-like aftertaste. Not the best of Czech pilseners, but decent quality.

This reminded me of Urquell, which is always a good thing, but there's enough going on to make it distinctive all by itself. A little sweeter yet not overpoweringly so. Nice appearance as well. All in all a nice package for a pilsner.

Well when drinking this I starting off comparing it to PU, but they are nothing alike - PU has a bite, I found kozel to be generous on the malt (a honey light malt)and to go down very smoothly. Very happy with this effort. cheers

Dark amber color with a nice creamy head. Aroma is clearly toffee, sweet and very nice. Flavor is a little thin, some citrus. Almost no bitterness.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2003
Clear yellow with a moderate head. Fruity flowery (grassy?) aroma. Hoppy bite to it. Not bad, not really to my taste though.

Bronstein (175) - Göttingen, GERMANY - SEP 17, 2003
Golden color, not so stable head. Slightly malty aroma. Weak body with malt flavour. Not as rich as Budweiser Budvar or Staropramen. Hops are missing. Nice malt aftertaste. Nothing great but drinkable. Smooth on the palate.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 25, 2003
Tasted in "U Kozla", Prague. Deep golden color and classic mountainous snow-white head. Aroma is fruity and malty, Palate is wonderfully citric, lemonish with hints of caramel malt and bread. Dry and slightly fruity (apricots, peaches) finish.
