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

MoritzF (8493) - 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.

Pale malt aroma with touches of hops. Medium, clean body with flavors of toasted malt, mild hops and nuts. The finish is malty and short. Average all around.

gnoff (7834) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2006
Draugth at Branicky Sklipek in Prague.

Dark amber to light brown color, small white head. Huge butterscotch scent, almost like smelling red wine when compared to the Branik 10 I had beside it. More (and better) taste than the bottled version found in Sweden. Medium high bitterness. Lots of diacetyl in the taste as well. Big mouthfeel.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2008 Bottle. A sweet apple malt aroma. Dark tan color with little head. A sweet malt flavor with a farily strong cherry flavor. Finish has moderate hops bitterness.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2008
Tap, opposite Ferdinand brewpub. Chilled pine nose with some fart, sulphur and metal. Dark gold (’semi-dark’) and lagery. Clean, crisp Saazy lemon notes and a smear of butter. Freshbread malty and hoppier as it warms.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2005
A Sim rate: On tap at Edinboro Castle, Camden. Darker in appearance but not in flavour as compared to regular Staropramen. Tastes very much like regular Staropramen but with a little more bitterness. Watery and not very impressive. That’s the whole rate...
