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

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2005
Bitter ale-like vienna, but without any head whatsoever. Not very appealing - I’d rather have a Kilkenny.

Christian (11493) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2005
Draught: Dark golden beer with a fluffy head that disappears with some nice lacing. Weak malt and fruit aroma. Some malt sweetness immediately, but heavily hopped bitter flavour making it very refreshing.

Ingevara (832) - SWEDEN - APR 27, 2005
Reddish beer, full of surprising flavors; some sweetness, but not disturbing, good carbonation and a refreshing aroma with tones of a diet christmas beer (is there such a thing?).

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2005
Bottle. The colour is pale amber; the off-white head is finger thick.

The smell is somewhat sourish and a bit burned with notes of dark rye bread, coffee with cream, and some fruity hops.

The carbonation is the usual for a dark lager.

A fruity malty note dominates the taste. Then, a growing bitterness emerges with notes of watermelon and some roasted notes. The aftertaste got metallic bitter notes and some boiled vegetables.

Overall, a Czech pils with some roasted notes. Not very exciting.

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - APR 5, 2005
Amber/golden. Off white lasting head. Hoppy/fruity aroma. Mild flavour with malty sweetness. Discrete perfumy hops (saazer?). Smooth palate. Nice easy drinking beer.

YogiBeera (2533) - New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2005
Bottle: Dark copper color, small fizzy head, soft caronation. Nice malt and hops nose. Nice and crisp. Caramel and soft light tones of almonds in the taste.

pivo (2621) - GERMANY - APR 3, 2005
Light caramel nose, pale amber color, low sticky head. Honey-ish malt with a little almond and raisin. Gritty bitter across the mouth. Meidum body and a good balance. Clean palate. Classy.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2005
Bottled. Clear copper colour. Medium, quite lasting head. Cookie malt aroma. Slightly sweet, caramelly taste. Quite bitter finish. A decent polotmave.

Sigmund (5558) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2005
Draught at the brewery beer hall. Served too cold, in the appropriate stylish glass. Beautiful amber colour, moderate head. Fruity aroma with hints of caramel. Some caramel in the flavour too, but not really sweet. Nutty. Tolerably well hopped.
