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

CanCrusher (759) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle 0,50L. Clear, copper colour with average big, creamy, off-white head. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, biscuits. Taste is light sweet in the begining, turns to medium bitter with caramel and spicy hops, than become sweet again in the aftertaste. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Average...

Potyi (27) - HUNGARY - JUL 26, 2014
A pörkölése jó, de hiányoltam azt az enyhén selymes ízt, amit egy félbarna sörtől már elvárnék. A színe szép, a habja is kemény.

Aroma: malty, bread, cereals. Appearance: clear amber, medium frothy white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: malty sweets remain in the background, refreshing bitters. Overall: not as good as St Norbert Jantar, bit too bland. Pint at Staropramen Konzept, Prague.

Jamedra (707) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 14, 2014
Láhev 500 ml. Aroma je sladové s jemným chmelovým nádechem. Pěna je bílá, jemná, středně vysoká a poměrně držící. Barva samotného piva je měděná. Chuť je sladová s lehkým čokoládovým nádechem, finiš je kávově hořký a držící. V ústech pivo působí poměrně plně, má silnější říz a je dobré pitelnosti. Jedná se o vcelku dobrý polotmavý, vhodný na všední pití.

flying_pig (1205) - SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2014
400ml glass on-tap in Potrefená Husa, Prague (49Czk):
Grassy hops & caramel notes come through at the start of this one, alongside some sweetness & a few earthy notes. Some toffee too and a light bitterness & toasted notes that linger.
Reddish amber, a 2cm, creamy, white head that holds very well & leaves some nice lacing too.
Faint, almost spicy hops & caramel start things off here, sugars feature too & there is some further sweetness from some faint vanilla & some butter with sweet malts too.
Clean with a fairly crisp and light-medium body that is well-carbonated & sharp finish. Sweet one and struck a good balance whilst going down quite easily.

Like a pale lager initially but with more sweetness but from the middle on the beer improves on this with a lot of sweet malts & caramel. Not a classic but it is a nice one and certainly one worth trying, particularly if you can find it on-tap anywhere.

Tried bottled and on tap a number of times. Slightly stronger hints of caramel than the standard staropramen, other than that, nothing special.
