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

harrisoni (13289) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2006
33cl bottle brought back from Prague. Amber colour with thin white head. Some toasted malt, bit of toffee aroma. Very clean and crisp in mouth. Hoppy bite on the end. Some good flavours of toffee and hop, but doesn’t really offer much else.

EithCubes (4759) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2006
Bottled. Rich amber pour with an excellent beige head and medium carbonation. Sweet aroma, some spicy malt. Thick and crisp, spicy, malty, tart, finishes mildly bitter. A little fruity sweetness, dry finish though. Very good.

Skinnyviking (6793) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2006
Bottle. Off white lasting head. Amber body. Barley aroma. Strong hops flavor and roasted malt. Very good for a pilsener

larsga (6163) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 6, 2006
Medium white creamy head; clear yellow body. Light yeasty aroma. Light, clean taste of nothing with a faint aftertaste of watery caramel. Boring. (On tap.)

maeib (8621) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2006
On tap - Southwark Tavern Borough London. An amber coloured beer with a little lace and head. The aroma is sweet, malty and toasty. The malts also come through in the taste which is toasty and includes caramel notes. OK but this style is not really for me.

Another fantastic beer in the collection of Staropramen, this is how a real Vienna should be brewed. It is recommendable trying out drinking all four common Staropramen at the same day, then you will find out the high quality.

Marko (3896) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 21, 2005
Beer no. 25 of my Slovenian beerhunt.
Poured a stunning deep orange colour with a nice small head. Deep malt, alcohol and coffee nose. Pleasant light malty taste tinged with coffee and balanced with a fine dose of hops. A bit simple, true, but certainly nice.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2005
A Sim rate: On tap at Edinboro Castle, Camden. Darker in appearance but not in flavour as compared to regular Staropramen. Tastes very much like regular Staropramen but with a little more bitterness. Watery and not very impressive. That’s the whole rate...

NosirIwont (1946) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2005
Bottle. Pours clear golden-brown with a fluffy off-white head. Hoppy and malty aroma. Flavour is sweetish and malty with nut-like notes. Slightly bitter finish. 22-11-05.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - NOV 7, 2005
(on bottle)Strange, acidic harsh taste here, fear of a bad bottle.Flat had, golden rusty-red colour. Some sour aroma, rotten mash and then that iritating, metallic, harsh taste. No real finish, but more acid/metal taste.
