Bottle. Murky, dark brown body with a small off-white head. The aroma has nuts, caramel, sweet smoke, and coffee. Again, it’s reasonably nutty and toasty with apparent bitterness. Pretty solid but the aroma outshines the flavour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm, 20 June) Colour is dark brown, mahogany with hints of ruby, with frothy beige head. Nose is malty, slightly roasted, with caramel, butter-scotch and some chocolate. Taste is malty with the same caramel/toffee character, some chocolate and coffe detectable as well. Slightly sweet with a balanced hoppiness in the finish. Tasty and enjoyable, but hardly exciting.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle at Blĺ Rock Cafe. Very dark with some lasting beige head. Aromatic malts. Most of the flavour profile is about caramel. Notes of bitterness in the finish. Rather thin and watery, but well worth a test now and then.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is the best lager I’ve had.
Malty, roasted, saturated aroma, with hints of dark syrup.
Pretty enjoyable flavor, easy to drink, nothing strange. Vaguely bitter with the slightest sweetness.
Not very fullbodied. Quite thin.
A better choice than a Guinness and these are two most common non-ultracrappy beers served in Swedish bars. A reason not to go there actually.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2006 Staropramen Dark Beer. 330 ml green long-neck bottle. Pours a russet colour. Clear. Small light beige head that fades away quickly. Aromas of dark rye bread. Also vinous, alcoholic, and sugar-like aromas. Watery mouthfeel. Tastes roasty and dry. Somewhat disappointing, although not a bad beer. Price: 5.79 EUR per litre.

33 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Dark amber colour nearly brown colour. Sweet aroma with notes of caramel, malt and some roastedness too. Very smooth tasty flavour with sweet caramel, toffee and a fine and noteable touch of roastedness and with a bitter and little dry finish.
