2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from some new bar in town, this was the only thing I’ve not had in there and probably will go for something different next time. typical malty pils which isn’t really my thing. I found it watery and a little metallic. Didn’t care for this much.

500ml can thanks to Jeff Jones. This was on a higher league than most lagers I have had. Taste was slightly sweet with small hits of malt. The aroma of mild hops was pleasing and it drank quite well, and smooth. No bitterness to the flavour, which is better left out of a beer that isn’t paid a lot of attention to in the brewing process. Not a bad lager. I’d take this over Creemore.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle brown, 500 ml, 12 P
Appearance: Head is small than decreases and diminishes almost at all, what lasts is only a small rim around the glass wall. Head colour was white but after a few seconds there is totally nothing. Body is sparkling in a normal way, very clear, light amber in colour.
Aroma: Rather simple, chalky mainly, a hint but very small hint of alcohol, a bit sweet from malted barley, some hints of hoppyness, rather very poor aroma compared with other Bohemian Pilseners from Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Flavour: Surprisingly I am disappointed, Kozel made of beer is after drinking 3 types of it 10 P, 12 P and Cerny, the worst mark of Bohemian Pilseners I’ve ever tasted. Like poor Polish Pale Lagers from supermarkets. I think it’ s really the great art of brewing to make such a wattery beer - plonk out of such a good ingredients used there and natural sources in the country. Beer seems more wattery than 10 P version and has considerably worst taste, nothing more. Finish duration is short.
Palate: Rather no aftertaste, body is light, texture is wattery, carbonation is soft on palate, finish feel is wattery and accidic, total failure.

50 cL bottle. Pours clear and almost golden yellow with a semi creamy and white head. Light caramel malt aroma. Flavour shows a smooth malt base with a minor note of caramel. Light fresh bitterness lurking through in the finish. Nice and smooth brew.

Actually liked Kozel Svetle more. This has more complex flavour, but (at least my bottle) is much heavier, a bit too heavy for a pils. Slightly acidic. Solid though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden color with big, creamy and lacy white head. Mild and smooth malty aroma, also some grassy hoppyness and butter. Mild, malty flavor is slightly buttery and balanced with smoothly bitter hops. Medium-bodied, smoothly carbonated palate is not watery at all.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml can. Pours a glorious gold, with medium head. Odour reminded me of Old Milwaukee - i.e., it smelled cheap. Found the malty/tinny taste to be reminiscent of mass produced US beer. Quite a disappointment

The Beer Store - Can: Light golden colour, small but present head. A kind of almost borderline fruit aroma with some grassy hops too. This has an unusual taste, fruit and malt with a grassy finish, there is a slight metallic twang in there too

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep clear golden with quickly disappearing lacy head. Dry bohemian hops aroma. The flavor flavor is well-balanced, buttery, the malts are very fruity (apple-ish) and the hops are teasing, zesty and pure. Soft carbonation and medium body lead to dry, buttery finish.
