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

Ktwse (1883) - SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2013
On tap. Pours dark amber with low white head. Aroma of bread, malt, light toffee. Taste is sweetish with only a hint of bitterness in the (abrupt) finish. Light body with soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kryon (1333) - SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2013
Pours amber with low white head Aromas of pilsener, bready malts and hints of sweet malts Tastes very much of a sweet pilsener. Quite fresh but has the wee bit too metallic taste for my likimg ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lilja (1550) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2013
En klassisk tjekisk lager, en av de bättre. Smak och doft av karamell, malt, humle, toner av frukt och nötter. Stor sötma som avrudas av en lätt beska.

MichaelAwesome (3601) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2013
Granat ist sicherlich ein Vienna-Style und dennoch hatte ich immer das Gefühl, ich würde zumindest Granatapfel-ähnliche Aromen spüren. Beeren sicherlich, gemischt mit etwas Karamell. So oder so ist es ein wunderbar einfaches, aber auch sehr süffiges und ganz einfach leckeres. Dieses muss ich noch mal haben - für Probe B.

McTapps (3607) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2013
Clear red / ruby colour with low head and medium body. Nose of nuts. Taste of low malt, ripe grains, brown butter, mild fruits, toffee, caramel and nuts. Very easy and nice to drink, really refreshing as well. Needs temperature.

Flaska från Systembolaget. Fingerhög skumkrona som avklingar snabbt. Klar mörk kopparfärgad vätska. Doft av....ingenting. Endast spår av något svagt kemiskt. Doften följs upp av en lika intensiv avsaknad av smak. Maltsötma - ej närvarande. Beska - icke närvarande. Denna dryck förklaras härmed olovlig frånvaro. Och det är det bästa man kan säga om den. Vilken besvikelse.

Borresteijn (4564) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2013
50cl Bottle from Tesco Plzen. Clear copper/amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, bitter walnuts, light malty. Flavour is light sweet, caramel, nuts, bitter finish. Watery, light-bodied, but certainly not bad.

laiti (5556) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 10, 2013
33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Prague as ”Staropramen Red Dark”. Rated on 14.07.2009
Aroma is slightly tart with berries and some malty notes. Flavour is somewhat tart and acidic with lots of berry juice, some malty and floral notes. I thought I would get something exclusive when I bought the most expensive bottle I could find but instead of that my glass was filled with berry juice. Urgh.

Vignale (1994) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2013
Flaska från SB. Klar bärnstensfärgad vätska. Doft av bröd, lagerjäst, lite bloomor och en aning smör. Smaken är ren med lite vass kolsyra. Lätt kropp, brödig smak med lite örtiga brödkryddor, hasselnötter och en liten karamellsötma och en liten örtig beska. Helt okej som törstsläckare eller matöl men ingen större upplevelse.
