...bottle. Sparkeling light orange with a minimul head. Hops on the nose, with freshly cut grass. Had a decent flavor, with sweet, lightly roasted malts. Light bodied, easy drinking. Finish was dry and slightly bitter, with some hop notes. Not bad at all.

Bottle 50cl.
Clear medium yellow orange color with a average, frothy, good lancing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light metallic. (270508)

Svesse (8601) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2008
(Draught at U Cerneho Vola, Prague, 23 July 2008) Golden yellow colour with a frothy, white head. Malty, grassy nose with notes of tropical fruit. Malty, grassy taste with bread, pineapple and a short, citrussy finish. Fairly thin, too sweet. Yawn!

A reasonably good tasting Czech pilsener, worthy of a taste now and again. Head fizzles away quickly, yet a refreshing taste.

Another absolutely excellent Pilsner from the Czechs. They seem to be the only country consistently up to par with the Germans on this style. Well done, excellent beer and deserves the rating it has.

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.

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.

D (577) - Gdynia, POLAND - MAY 10, 2008
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.
