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.

Pint can pours a clear golden with a large white head. Aroma of muted sweet biscuit honey malt with light hops. Sweet malt flavor, with light yeast and light hop bitterness. Ok, drinkable.

18/VII/15 - 50cl bottle from local supermarket Olomouc @ home - BB: 5/VII/15 (they sold me this on 5/VII!) (2015-934)

Clear orange beer, small creamy off-white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very malty, grains, grassy, some citrus. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sweet, malty, nice bitterness, bit grassy, some caramel. Aftertaste: hoppy, bitter, grassy, some citrus, dry finish. This ain’t too bad! I’ve always liked Kozel, ever since I walked into U Cerneho Vola in Prague and had two of their beers on draft. Too bad I didn’t take notes back then! :p

Pours a clear, golden color, topped with an average sized white head. Malty aroma, some mild grassy and grainy notes. Taste starts a bit on the sweet side, malty with mild bitterness in the finish. Pretty decent one.

(Can, 0.5 l - 4.6 % ABV, 20150730) The beer poured pale golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sweetness and herbalness. Palate was light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was mildly bitter. A rather thin pale lager.

A golden beer, a head is white and almost medium. Aroma has strong malts, some grass, pure. Taste has light malts, only hint of grassy bitterness but still not too sweet. ruohoista Medium bodied, quite smooth and nicely to drink. Easy to enjoy, power of malts.
