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

rarbring (1548) - 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 (2609) - 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.

Lilja (1783) - 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 (4587) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, 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 (4589) - 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.
