A Czech pils who does its job as a thirst quencher and intoxicant. No bad flavors in this beer.

3.86/5  rDev +18.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Good head and lacing that stays throughout the drink. The head faded to a thin foam. Typical pale lager colour.

Aroma: Marshmallows and whitebready. Grainy. A nice bit of floral hop aroma.

Taste: I taste barley malt and floral hops in this really rather delicious Czech lager. It is delicately sweet and mildly bitter and floral.

Mouthfeel is light yet frothy and suggests a good water source is used.

Overall: A very good Czech lager in the 10 degree plato - 4% abv category.

84/100

Picked up a can at a train station near Cesky Krumlov. Many signs at bars for this and it is cheap. Bought a can and popped it open. Date on can was for 2 months back. Did I say it was a buck! Anyway, little smell right away and a smooth artificial taste. Nothing terrible, but nothing noteworthy. Every country needs it's yellow beer. After research I see this very old brewery with a nice story is part of SAB Miller. My quest for independent breweries in Czech will continue

I really don't like this beer. However it is very popular Czech beer and I don't know why? Maybe because the price is low. But the biggest problem what I have with this beer is that after 2 or 3 bottles my head going to crash. Very strong headache every time, that is why I don't drink this anymore...

Kozel Svetly
500ml can, dated "28.12.13 L1 179 07:00" - 4 days old

Appearance: Clear, golden body. Frothy bright white head holds fairly well, eventually dropping to a thin but full surface covering. Average to slightly better than average lacing.

Smell: Fairly generic "beer" although some nice malt is present.

Taste: Malt again is the dominant, but the hops are almost equal, and well integrated: dull, spicy, and floral. The mid-level bitterness is "very firm" but not "strong". Unexciting dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Median carbonation.

Overall: With the exception of a malt that's slightly more interesting than the standard "Euro Pils" maltiness it's just an otherwise bland, average beer.
