COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the US, called BrouCzech Dark.

Pyrope or Bohemian garnet stones were randomly collected in our territory by ancient Celts. It is a stone of all-binding fire, passion as well as purity of heart. However, it is generally known as a stone of love. Thanks to its typical colour, its name has been used metaphorically in connection with the colour of dark and semi-dark beers. Granat from Nova Paka is a dark sweeter lager with quality rich foam that is suitable for mixing pale types; alcohol 5%.

Not a big fan of this one. Overly sweet, not enough hop balance. Caramel, toffee, and even some brown sugar. The aroma is malty sweet as well.

Slightly sour smell and taste of roasted malt, caramel and hops. The taste has an unpleasant metallic and bitter tone. Not a particularly good beer!

Quickly dissipating head over light brown body with a reddish tint. Pleasant roasted malt smell. Roasted malts also has a grassy, bitter hops taste. Like roasted malts over a pilsner with a few sweet notes in the mix. I liked it very much.
