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

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2004
An amber beer with a beutiful off-white head. The aroma is sweet with lots of hops and grass. The flavor is of caramel with quite a lot of hops and a smooth mouthfeel - nice.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2004
50 cl bottle. Bright amber. Nice foam, that does not last. Strange, unpleasant, smell. Quite sweet, kinda ’old’ taste with hints of chewing gum. Some bitterness. Propably the worst of the Staropramen beers.

shrubber85 (7381) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2008 Bottle. A sweet apple malt aroma. Dark tan color with little head. A sweet malt flavor with a farily strong cherry flavor. Finish has moderate hops bitterness.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2004
Amber colour with a fizzy head. Aroma is mainly malt. Flavor is mostly hoppy with a light bitter finish. All in all a dissapointment.

legion242 (2163) - Richardson, Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2004
Amber in color. Smooth nitro head. Nose was plain malt. An unassertive beer that was nitro pushed in Prague!!! In Prague??? I was blown away. Seems like blasphemy

skortila (4436) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2004
(On tap) Aroma is weak; hoppy and fruity. Clear, amber coloured with a lasting, off-white head. Taste is hoppy, bitter, bit sweet and slightly malty. This beer doesn’t really ’add’ something to the brews of Staropramen. Quite uninteresting. Decent brewing though.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2004
(Bottled) Light amber color with a small head. Slightly brown-sugary, aromatic-hoppy aroma with some whisky-malt hints. Quite bitter, slightly wooden and metallic flavor. Medium-bodied, low-carbonated, bitter palate. A Czech version of an English bitter - just like the Dark is a version of Guinness. Not bad at all - just not perfect, either.

malachite (16) - ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2004
UPDATED: APR 14, 2007 Bought in bottles, Prague. Benefited from little transport, i think. Overall, very clear and enjoyable. Light enough for a hot summer day, but strong enough to make tasting enjoyable.
