COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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".

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.

gnoff (7934) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2008 Draught at Branicky Sklipek in Prague.
Served in a small 30 cl or a big 50 cl glass (by chice).
Light yellow color, small white head. Not much scent, but might be due to the extremely smokey environment. Big body, clear diacetyl/butterscotch flavor. Medium bitterness. Very refreshing, but not a lot of taste other than the butterscotch.
Earlier Rating: 2/19/2006 Total Score: 2.8

Golden color. Slight hoppy aroma and flavor. Just a hint of glue and fresh grass. Lovely light lager. Clean, soft but tasty.

Ingevara (804) - SWEDEN - APR 19, 2005
GOlden standard-lager color, but the aroma is much greater. It is not as dry as most czech beers, has a well balanced sweetness with lots of malt in the palate. A nice beer that I could drink a lot of.

Jamedra (514) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 22, 2014
Láhev 500 ml. Aroma je velmi výrazně chmelové se sladovým podkladem, bohužel časem ustupuje. Pěna je jasně bílá, jemná, vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá. Chuť je příjemně sladová s jemným kvasnicovým nádechem, finiš je středně hořký a držící. V ústech pivo působí plně, má silný říz a je vysoké pitelnosti. Jedná se o osvědčenou klasiku za pár korun, která nepřekvapí, ale rozhodně ani neurazí.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2005
Pale golden colour. Some fruity aroma, might be from banana. Also from hops. Has a strong metalic taste and has a lasting bitter aftertaste.

(tap at small branikplace, Praha) A very clear, lightly golden beer with thick, white foam. It has a general lager-aroma with some diacetyle. The palate is good but the taste is a bit light. It has alnost no bitterness and is actually a bit salty.

The quality is unbelievable for such a low price. Very drinkable, with decent hop flavor.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 20, 2003
The points that this brew gets comes more from the atmosphere in which I enjoyed it: very local house in Prague, dropped the equivelant of a couple nickels on the counter and got my half liter. . . bubbly head on a clear light golden body. Light saaz type hop aroma with a good deal of floral aromatics. Loads of straw and grass flavours - the lingering hops makes this one drinkable for me. . .
