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

Bottle green, 500 ml
Appearance: Pours deep, essential, clear, very transparent, strong tea of good quality like body colour, very interesting and nice with visually lively carbonation and initially medium head, very slowly decreasing to small, but not to minimal, frothy, off - white with decent and very nice lacing, the body actually is very deep and focused, essential amber in colour reminding clean and good quality English Bitter/ESB, really - nice firm head, some orange hue is prasent.
Aroma: Very mild, milky, covered with frothy and dense head that is small in size, but in fact very firm, slightly aromatic flowery hops being Zatec like, when it comes to malts it is very interesting and unusual experience for me as I’ve had only 1 or 2 Vienna Lagers before and really I have no great experience in assessing that unusual for me type of malt used in the beer. It’s very mild and something like being in between Pilzen malt and Munich malt, neither too Pilzen like nor to Munich like, so all in all not that pronounced, hiding somewhere at the background. A bit juicy with young cherry accent.
Flavour: Very nice and strong essential, refreshing citrusy bitterness attacking your tongue and binding it and hoppy aroma lifting your nose trills, flowery and floral hops are playing the great role here while the malty base is hidden at the background being kind of burned cherry seeds like. Some saltyness on palate from very well adjusted effervescence. Wonderfull and really unexpected flavour.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is dry (like in IPA or Bitter), carbonation on palate is very lively in deed and finish feel is essentially bitter, citrusy, grapefruity, unforgetable, fresh and clean. Great job of Staropramen Breweries once again.

Nice appearance, I saw a big glass with red-brown liquid and exquisite head. Taste is toasted barely and bit hoppy.

SilkTork (5412) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2008
Cheap bottle from Prague Tesco. Pleasant reddish-amber colour. Quite dry with a sweetish malty awareness and a smudgy hop bitterness in the finish. Unremarkable but quite drinkable.

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2008
Tap, opposite Ferdinand brewpub. Chilled pine nose with some fart, sulphur and metal. Dark gold (’semi-dark’) and lagery. Clean, crisp Saazy lemon notes and a smear of butter. Freshbread malty and hoppier as it warms.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2008
Red-golden with a weak head. The aroma is hoppy and the flavour is rather full considering the style. It has notes of flower, honey and a nice sweetness and an Ok bitterness. Quite OK.

Bottle, 4.6%, october 07. Clear, copper-golden color with a medium white, bubbly compact head. Aroma is very clean with some fruity/cardboard notes. Tastes very clean and neutral, bittersweet. Some methallic hops and light fruity notes. Medium mouthfeel, a bit astringent with a dry finnish. Nice, drinkable slightly bitter amber lager.
