Pours dark amber with a large, quickly fading head.
Nose shows hay, grassy hops and bready malt. Not amazingly appealing.
Flavours aren't much of an improvement, but instead show light sweet malt with a big grainy character.
Could use more carbonation.
Pretty boring stuff.

A - This beer pours a golden colour with a hint of amber, with a nice tight white head that retains well - 4

S - Mothing of note except some mild malts - 2.0

T - Small yeast and some malt and a dryish sweet finish. 2.5

M - Lots of carbonation and a notch up from a light body. 3.0

D - Nothing to write home about but does make a sessionable beer. 2.5

This is certainly best described as a generic canned beer from Europe. I know that i need to say more but to me that says it all. It has no real scent, no real taste beyond a tinny malt with a syrupy aftertaste. It is smooth but drab. I don't like it.

Thanks to my father-in-law for this obscure lager tick. Server in a pils glass. Best before June 14th, 2013. Pretty sure Kozel = Kozel Premium.

A - Two fingers of creamy off-white foam linger, with surprisingly good retention, yielding plenty of intricate lace patterns and a thick cap. Transparent golden straw with tons of visible bubbles racing upwards.

S - Generic lager aroma, with toasted grains, earthy and slightly skunky hops, perhaps a touch of corn sweetness. Pretty bland and inoffensive.

T - The taste is quite similar, with lightly toasted cereal grains and corn sweetness mid-palate before yielding to some mild hop bitterness. Again, inoffensive and largely forgettable.

M - Carbonation is a bit zesty and and harsh. Medium-light body, a tad watery but surprisingly creamy. Lightly sticky finish, and no apparent alcohol as you'd expect.

D - It's a generic Euro Lager more than a Czech Pilsner. If I had nothing else I could easily finish a 500ml can, but I can't justify wasting calories and alcohol units on this when I have much better options in the fridge. Not sure why the LCBO feels the need to stock so many beers taste nearly identical.

500ml Can

Appearance - Clear gold/yellow colour with an above average size frothy white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is a faint amount of lacing on the sides of the glass. The head lasted for around 4 minutes before it began to dissipate.

Smell - breads/grains, corn, hops, a skunkiness

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation. I can taste breads/grains mixed with corn and a little bit of hops. It also a fair amount of pilsner skunk to it. It finishes with a bready slightly bitter aftertaste.

Overall - So many cans of lagers at the LCBO, and they're pretty much all the same. This one might have been marginally better than most of them, but it's still nothing exciting. Regardless, it goes down smooth and would be good during the warmer weather.

This gets a ticj in all the boxes ,but overall comes up as particularly middle of the road and somewhat boring.
Lacks for a cutting bitterness and clean palate cleansing blast.
Colour head and overall appearance are what it should be , the flavour needs the dial turned up a little.
It was a cold day on which I imbibed and perhaps this is a beer best for a hot summers evening .

A: Pours a clear light golden color with a decent head that fades quickly to bits of lacing.

S: Aroma has a mild citrus aroma with some malt sweetness and grain.

T: Taste of mild citrus, malt sweetness and grain. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish.

F: Light body, crisp and quite smooth but something is missing to make this a good Bohemian Pils.

O: Drinkable and much better than a Euro Lager.
