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%.

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.
