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.

Very good Lager. Taste is mild but colourfull. Maybe there are better beers in this kind, but Kozel has a great if not the best balance.

Pours a clear golden color, the head is white and initially has a medium thickness but slowly diminishes. The aroma reveals hay and noble hops, it is gentle. The flavor is good, fruits (berries) flirt with noble hops on a stack of hay, the flirt finishes with bitteness. The body has a medium to full thickness, the texture is creamy and the carbonation moderate. I didn’t think I would really appreciate this beer but it is a pleasant surprise.

Dorqui (2145) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 22, 2005
Medium and compact foam, discreet duration. Yellow gold color, limpid and medium fizzy. Determined alcohol and malty scent, unusual for one Czech beer. Much prickly and racy taste; enough determined malty and hoppy notes, overbearing and long-lasting bitter. Elevated alcoholic perception. Balanced end.

Overall a great great beer. Goes down even better after trying other, inferior, beers! It is the best medium beer I have tried, better than Staropramen and even Pilsner! I prefer Czech beer, in general, but this one easily takes the cake. A number of people I know think Staropramen’s "Granat" is better but I don’t agree. I also like Kozel because it has less of a bite.

A nice solid lager. Nothing too special. Malty on the nose. Pours golden amber with reasonable foamy head. Nice mix of malt sweetness and hoppy bitterness. Good beer.

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.

harrisoni (15071) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2005
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.
