COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Staropramen Garnet is a unique lager that fully honours the tradition of our brewery. In the brewing process, which is based on the original recipe from 1884, we mix pale and specialty malts in the so-called "sprinkling" process. This gives the lager its typical garnet colour, gently bitter taste and full-bodied hopsy aroma

Kita (1158) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle, 0.50l, courtesy of CanCrusher. Clear amber brown color with large frothy off-white head, nice lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, hay, vegetables, dandelions with subtle note of berries. Taste starts with light sweet caramel, following is papery with grassy sourness, crisp and dry mouthfeel with medium bitter and quite unpleasant finish. Light to medium body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Total disappointment with such a thin and unbalanced beer...

BlackHaddock (4012) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2014
3rd Oct 2014 on-tap inside the breweries Visitor Centre Bar after a tour through their strange presentations (do the tour to understand what I mean). Amber with an off-white head that tried to stay the distance. Aroma is weak, some maltiness but very little of anything really. The taste was semi-sweet malt with a caramel twist and a mini hop presence to keep the sweetness in check (see what I did there?). Slight bitter finish.

Tap@sbwf14. Amber colour, thick white head. Grainy malty aroma, some hay. Flavor has grain, sweetness, butter, hint of metal. Mild bitter finish.

jookos (2529) - FINLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Tap@sbwf14. Amber clear, frothy foamy. Malty nose- caramels, light toffee, light nuttyness, autumny leafy herbs. Soft quite nice round body. Some blandness, but surprisingly nice for something I assume is bulk. Mellow, easily drunk with a slight watery caramel finish.

Rotin (60) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle 0,5l. Low grassy hop aroma. Amber color, moderately carbonated. Flavor of both- pilsner and caramel- malts is present, bitterness at low level. Balance is slightly towards sweetness. Bitter, but unpleasant aftertaste. Just commercial czech beer, acceptable, nothing more.

Ascelja (60) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle 0,5l. Interesting beer on half way between Czech pilsener and dunkel. Aroma is only low – barley malt and caramelized malt. In taste sweet malt, medium bitter in aftertaste. If is using real hop, it should be very good beer, but with extract (sort of bitterness) it’s only average one.

JaKeAFC (578) - ITALY - SEP 21, 2014
50 cl bottle. Copper/amber color, big rocky white head, lasting, quiet nose. Aroma caramel malts and somewhat similar to a bitter, cookiesm, some faint fuity esters, bread, leafy hops. Alcohol sensible already. Sweetish taste, soft carbonation, Medium bodied, sticky. Nice polotmavy.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Sampled at the End of History tasting. Aroma is iron, autumnal leaves, and malt. Pours light red with bubbles and light lacing. Taste is burnt bread crust and malt. Mouthfeel is bitter and light. Unpleasant and a poor substitute for a bohemian pils.

jaghana (4083) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle 33cl, traded with Nisse666 thanks for this new style for me ! A clear copper amber beer with medium head. Nose is on grain and brown bread, touch of sweet caramel. Aroma is on toasted caramel, grassy hops and relative bitterness, nutty, metallic notes at the finish, long floral bitterness on aftertaste with blond caramel.

Lore (1177) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 7, 2014
perfect appearance of amber colour and huge, dense and creamy beige-ish off-white head; aroma of biscuit, some caramel, fruits and floral notes; taste of floral notes, caramel, minimal fruity notes and roastedness; very good polotmavy
