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

Maria (10121) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2008
Red-golden with a weak head. The aroma is hoppy and the flavour is rather full considering the style. It has notes of flower, honey and a nice sweetness and an Ok bitterness. Quite OK.

madsberg (10107) - Sřborg, DENMARK - APR 27, 2003
Bottled: Clear light amber coloured. Not much head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Some fruity notes. In the flavour I find malts, hops, flowers, fruits and some sweetness. The beer finishes dry and pleasantly bitter.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - 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

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2006
On tap at The Potrafina Husa, Josefov, Prague, Pasteurised, 500ml. Brown with white head. Another heavily carbonated Staropramen beer, sweet and sugary with a dull cardboard note. Not my favourite Brewer at all.

pivnizub (8724) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2005
On draught at the brewery restaurant in Prague: Deep amber colour, firm, long lasting head, big aromatic nose: fruity - honey - malts and a tinge of hops, sweetish-malty taste, short sweet-bitter aftertaste. The best one in this pub.......

maeib (8574) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2006
On tap - Southwark Tavern Borough London. An amber coloured beer with a little lace and head. The aroma is sweet, malty and toasty. The malts also come through in the taste which is toasty and includes caramel notes. OK but this style is not really for me.

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2006
(bottle) Clear, amber colour with a small and slightly off-white foam. Light-sweet malty aroma with a touch of honey and a nice herbal hoppy blend. Light to medium body, smooth carbonation. Initially slightly sweet and toastmalty taste that dries out towards the finish, which is moderately bitter and slightly hoppy. Nice.
