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

Davhgbrew (947) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Dubbed my mothers friends favorite beer, simply reminds me of pilsner urquel or skunky green bottle pils equivalent. Smooth drinkable and unexciting.

Malty and smooth, not the same bitterness as the paler Czech beers. Works well with heavier food.

espenra (915) - Kurland, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2009
33cl bottle. Best before 2009-01-18. Whoops. It poured an amber orange colour with a medium big white foamy head that settled down fast in the glass. The aroma is malty with some grassy notes. The flavour is a bit bitter with notes of grass and malts. It has a short aftertaste. It’s a bit milder than some lagers, but nothing special.

Fukito (891) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - NOV 21, 2007
Bottle, 4.6%, october 07. Clear, copper-golden color with a medium white, bubbly compact head. Aroma is very clean with some fruity/cardboard notes. Tastes very clean and neutral, bittersweet. Some methallic hops and light fruity notes. Medium mouthfeel, a bit astringent with a dry finnish. Nice, drinkable slightly bitter amber lager.

Den här sĺ kallade unfilteredvarianten imponerar ite det minsta pĺ mig. Hade hoppats pĺ att det skulle vara lite mer stiltypiska drag men det kan man ju inte direkt pĺstĺ att det är. Känns som tjeckiens motsvarighet till Falcon Raw, vilket inte är ett bra betyg. Dom gillar väl att tjärna pengar gissar jag och unfiltered är ju ett trendigt och säljande ord just nu. Den här ser bara skitig ut och i övrigt ganska vattnig och smaklös. Jag är besviken.

Bottle green, 500 ml
Appearance: Pours deep, essential, clear, very transparent, strong tea of good quality like body colour, very interesting and nice with visually lively carbonation and initially medium head, very slowly decreasing to small, but not to minimal, frothy, off - white with decent and very nice lacing, the body actually is very deep and focused, essential amber in colour reminding clean and good quality English Bitter/ESB, really - nice firm head, some orange hue is prasent.
Aroma: Very mild, milky, covered with frothy and dense head that is small in size, but in fact very firm, slightly aromatic flowery hops being Zatec like, when it comes to malts it is very interesting and unusual experience for me as I’ve had only 1 or 2 Vienna Lagers before and really I have no great experience in assessing that unusual for me type of malt used in the beer. It’s very mild and something like being in between Pilzen malt and Munich malt, neither too Pilzen like nor to Munich like, so all in all not that pronounced, hiding somewhere at the background. A bit juicy with young cherry accent.
Flavour: Very nice and strong essential, refreshing citrusy bitterness attacking your tongue and binding it and hoppy aroma lifting your nose trills, flowery and floral hops are playing the great role here while the malty base is hidden at the background being kind of burned cherry seeds like. Some saltyness on palate from very well adjusted effervescence. Wonderfull and really unexpected flavour.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is dry (like in IPA or Bitter), carbonation on palate is very lively in deed and finish feel is essentially bitter, citrusy, grapefruity, unforgetable, fresh and clean. Great job of Staropramen Breweries once again.
