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

harrisoni (12648) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2006
33cl bottle brought back from Prague. Amber colour with thin white head. Some toasted malt, bit of toffee aroma. Very clean and crisp in mouth. Hoppy bite on the end. Some good flavours of toffee and hop, but doesn’t really offer much else.

yngwie (12605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 20, 2007
Bottled. Golden to copper body with a white head. Malty nose with fruityness, dried fruits, tobacco and tea. Caramel, malt and some fruity hop in the flavor. Smooth, medium body, and a finish with tea, tobacco and some dried fruits. The initial flavor is a bit boring, else it is a nice one. (070404)

TBone (11888) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 9, 2005
Bottled (BB 01/2006)
Amber color, small off-white head. Grassy hoppy aroma with toffee notes. Caramelly sweetish, malty with average hoppy bitterness in the finish. A classic example of vienna style.

Oakes (11770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 24, 2002
Damn, if Staropramen is Interbrew, why can’t I get it here? I had this at the White Horse, London...fiery amber; firm body, toasty; subtle hint of embers - similar to what you’d find in a wood-oven pizza; gets earthy towards the finish.

Christian (10778) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2005
Draught: Dark golden beer with a fluffy head that disappears with some nice lacing. Weak malt and fruit aroma. Some malt sweetness immediately, but heavily hopped bitter flavour making it very refreshing.

thewolf (10770) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2006
Bottle. Very nice clear amber colour with good bubbly head. Aroma of rye, bread and some dark toffee. sweet at first, then adds a roasted feel with caramel. Ends on a berry like note. Slightly bitter as well.

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 24, 2007
Bottle. Mahogny colour with a short bubbly head. Aroma of sweet roasty malt, caramel, and hops. Flavour is caramellic sweet with light roasty malts, bitter hops, hint of chocolate. Sweet bitter metallic finish.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2006 Mostly lasting head, nice amber colour, moderat week aroma, OK flavour. Rerated as 6-3-6-3-11 june-11 2006 without knowing previus rating. So my tasting powers are still intact.

Koelschtrinker (9995) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 7, 2011
Milder Antrunk, etwas wässrig, nach Hopfenextrakt. Kaum malzig, mild bleibend, zum Ende hin etwas hopfiger und bitter. Im Abgang trocken, weiter bitterer werdend, was im Kontrast zum eher süßen Mittelteil steht. Kann ich mich nicht wirklich mit anfreunden. Die Flasche hat ein neues Etikett, wurde auch das Rezept geändert? Wenn ich mir die anderen tests so durchlesen scheint es zumindest so. Test vom 27.4.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,7,6,4,9,5 - 6,00
