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

jookos (3495) - 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 (217) - 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 (215) - 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.

Jesterdeal (1985) - 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.
