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

Dogbrick (9830) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2009
On draught at the Hard Rock Cafe in Prague. This beer is a clear amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Top ring of lacing that slides down the glass. 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 (8937) - 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.

MoritzF (8860) - Ottobrunn, 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.

maeib (8749) - 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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks Tom. Clear amber color. Aroma of malt, some toasted bread notes, light caramel hints and a bit of hops. Sweetish malty flavor with a drier hoppy finish with light grassy notes. Medium-bodied. OK.
