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

Argonian (277) - Athens, GREECE - JUL 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a ruby body, with an average white head that diminishes fairly quickly, leaving a fair lace. Mostly malty aroma, didn’t get any caramel which I was expecting. Unfortunately, taste ruined it all. So much artificial sweetness, almost like a fruit beer. Low to medium carbonation, watery texture, thin bodied. Like I said, taste ruined it all.

rarbring (1338) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2013
Aroma: The smell i mostly from the malt, sweet and fruity, prunes and oranges.
Appearance: A clear deep amber beer, an off-white head that leaves lacing.
Taste: The taste is also sweetish, dried dates, plums and apricots. Some bitter orange, and more bitter notes like apricot seeds.
Palate: Rather low carbonation, soft and smooth, but with a long dry feeling.
Overall: A rather good dark lager, interesting fruit associations.
Note: On-tap at Restaurang London, Bryggargatan 2, Stockholm Reviewed 2010-07-05.

Douberd (2217) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle, 500 ml at home. Into a lager glass. ABV 4.8% Nice amber colour on the body, with great activuty in it. One finger of off-white steady head, really great retention. Nice rings of lacing as it goes down too. Grainy aroma, malts, a tiny bit of caramel/toffee. Sweet and malty taste, again buttery/toffee like. A bit of bitterness on the aftertaste, with a really short duration, but long enough to balance the sweetness and make you longing for the next sip. Medium thickness on the body, good carbonation. Nice dryness on the palate. Overall quite good, highly drinkable.
