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

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.

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.

Deep amber colour with a dense head. Pleasant malty aroma with hints of fruits. Flavour has a nice malty base and a pleasant, medium bitter finish. Good stuff.

Tried bottled and on tap a number of times. Slightly stronger hints of caramel than the standard staropramen, other than that, nothing special.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2010
Beautiful mahogani colour with a dense head. The aroma has notes of walnuts, roasted malts and grass. The flavour is nicely balanced with a strong malt profile and fine bitter finish.

Reddish beer, full of surprising flavors; some sweetness, but not disturbing, good carbonation and a refreshing aroma with tones of a diet christmas beer (is there such a thing?).
