500ml Bottle from Hyberniska Mini-Market, Prague, Czech Rep. (42Czk):
Clear with a light golden with a 1cm, bubbly white head on top that turns patchy.

Grassy hops & light malts, some sweetness to it & a touch of bitterness plus some earthy notes.

Grassy & Saaz hops , some spice & an earthy bitterness as well. Larger malts & some sweetness next. Standard but good.

Light & smooth yet not bland or thin. A crisp, non-offensive palate that was easy to drink. There was a hint of spice towards the end as well & the beer has a solid, easy-going drinkability to it.

A fairly standard lager and quite enjoyable without really standing out from the crowd. A nice, easy drinking lager; nothing spectacular but certainly worth picking up.

One of the Wednesday Night Trivia crew was recently over in the Czech Republic for work and brought back some CANs for me. Once again, it pays to advertise and my thanks to Rod Shenk for the gift(s).

From the CAN: "Alcohol does not belong behind the wheel"; "Light lager"; "Zal. (Zalozena) Est. 1874".

Now why is there a prevalent goat if it is anything other than a Bock? The Crack was unobrusive but the Glug netted me two fingers of rocky French Vanilla-colored head with decent retention. Color was a beautiful sunshine-yellow with NE-quality clarity and lots of carbonation in evidence. Greg Koch may not approve, but I liked it! Nose was slightly grassy, so maybe the categorization is right, but it is muted for the style. It was definitely a lager, however, but again, why the goat if not a bock? Mouthfeel was full, thanks to all of its inherent carbonation and the taste was of a Czech Pils, albeit a muted one. It had a grassy hoppiness on the tongue, but I have had better during the madness known as The CANQuest (TM). It was as if they had just gone through the motions with this one where others really had some solid flavor. Finish was dry, but kind of bland. It just lack a sense of "Oomph!" that the style needs to distinguish it from a GER Pils. That's IMHO FWIW. The vilification may begin ... now.

Had this beer on tap in Prague...depending on which pub, and how good the taps are, your Kozel could taste quite different...this is just an average experience.

It has a clear, light golden color and fluffy foam, Kozel 11° begins with a fresh aroma of malt and hops, typical to Czech lagers. This is a sweeter lager, with a lighter mild taste of malt and a slight aftertaste of hops. Pleasant and refreshing, at 4.6% it’s not too strong, and with just enough kick.

Brought a can of Kozel Medium 11 home from Europe. The beer poured clear golden. A foamy white head forms initially then tones down. There was no lacing. The smell was malty with a touch of fruit. The taste included malt, dark fruit and slight hop. The mouthfeel was medium body and mild carbonation. Overall this was a good beer, the added fruit helped to change up from the typical czech style beers offered in this region.

One bottle purchased in Prague.

.5L bottle served in mu Purkmistr mug.

A- Pours a clear deep gold. one finger head with not much retention, no lacing.

S- Sweet malt with a touch of fruit.

T- Caramelized malts, earthy fruits. Little tart at the start, mellows to a hoppy bitterness. Little watered down.

M- medium body, mild carbonation.

D- Pretty good beer, sets itself apart from other Czech beers. Not something I'd search out but I prefer the 11 medium over the regular Svetly Kozel.
