Braník is a typical Czech beer with a very refreshing taste, a natural "bite" and pure hopsy aroma. Braník Brewery was founded by a group of brewmasters from small historical breweries in 1899 under the name "Corporate Brewery of Prague Brewmasters".

imdownthepub (11392) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2006
Bottled, 500ml, pasteurised. Pale straw with white head. Seemingly well into Eurofizz league here, sweet malt, quite grainy and overall very bland. Mid carbonisation giving a wet paper like taste, low hop impact. Uninspiring.

On tap at Branicky Sklipek, Nove Mesto, Prague, Pasteurised, 500ml. Pale straw with white head. Braving the miserable Barman again we stepped down to the 10" Svelte and really noticed the difference. This is a watered down version, little aroma and really not much flavour apart from a little lemon. Cheap but not very cheerful.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2006
500 ml bottle (5.0% alcohol, bought in Sweden). Golden coloured and with a tall white creamy head that clings to the glass. Crisp hoppy and fruity aroma. Some citrus and grass. Mellow flavours with a slightly sweet malt flavour. Little carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Little bitterness, disappointly little in fact, and the beer finishes very soft and a bit flat. Aroma is nice, and the flavour ok, but the finish is just boring.

Sammy (9553) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2006
Pale lager without colour, aroma, or taste. A bit of head. Thanks to Jan Biegamann for bringing. Light mouthfeel, a bit of grassy hops appear at the finish. Malted down, though not too sweet,

500ml bottle. Clear pale golden coloured with a lasting white head. Smokey aroma. Medium palate. Hints of malty sweetness all the way through. A bit buttery (Session at Järnvägshotellet, Kiruna 13.07.2006).

Finn (4710) - Tromsř, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2006
Bottle 0,5l. Golden brown. A lasting white head. Sweet aroma. Sweet malty and bitter flavour. Well balanced. A bit too carbonated.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2006
(Canned) Golden color with a smallish, bubbly head. Very mild aroma with some buttery hops, hints of honey and sweetish malt. Sweetish-corny-buttery-malty flavor with mild acidity. Some slightly harsh hops in the finish. Light-bodied, somewhat watery and fizzy-carbonated palate. A typical, quite boring and watery bulk lager - with some hops, though.

BranikMan (36) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 26, 2006
Smooth, drinkable, flavorful at a great price! The perfect beer taste! It has a bad reputation in the Czech Republic since it is popular with the homeless but it is really excellent. A hidden gem. The company is trying to improve the beer’s image. About two years ago they changed the logo and graphics to make it look classier. It is now made by Staropramen at the Smichov brewery as they closed down the Branik brewery this year.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2006
Just another boring Czech pilsener. Someone else wrote "industrial hops" and I really think that puts the finger on this beer... that and metallic. And soapy.

Nekronos (3742) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JUN 4, 2006
Like a SPanish cheapr lager, it was too watery and with a cat’s poo after taste alike, like sandy if you understand me.

NIce lager. I tried and I was fine after the whole pint, not a stong flavor, but not incipit as many of the lager beers. I like its bubbling and the foam was really quallity.
