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

Jamedra (578) - Hostivice, - JUN 14, 2014
Láhev 500 ml. Aroma je sladové s jemným chmelovým nádechem. Pěna je bílá, jemná, středně vysoká a poměrně držící. Barva samotného piva je měděná. Chuť je sladová s lehkým čokoládovým nádechem, finiš je kávově hořký a držící. V ústech pivo působí poměrně plně, má silnější říz a je dobré pitelnosti. Jedná se o vcelku dobrý polotmavý, vhodný na všední pití.

j12601 (7000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle at James’ house for the End of History tasting. Pours a clear light brown amber with a thin white head. Grain and not much else. Medium bodied, a touch tart, grainy and empty. Light grain on the finish. Not terrible, but not memorable.

dnicolaescu (991) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - DEC 5, 2014
ON TAP. Aroma is candied apple with some rotten notes, hints of caramel and just a bit of hops. The flavour is the opposite, the humble caramel is dominated by herbal spicy hops.

bobroman (501) - Torun, POLAND - NOV 24, 2014
Aroma of malts with some hints of metal. Small head disappearing to thin layer. Clear amber colour. It tastes like Eiffel Tower with some malt.

Kita (1230) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle, 0.50l, courtesy of CanCrusher. Clear amber brown color with large frothy off-white head, nice lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, hay, vegetables, dandelions with subtle note of berries. Taste starts with light sweet caramel, following is papery with grassy sourness, crisp and dry mouthfeel with medium bitter and quite unpleasant finish. Light to medium body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Total disappointment with such a thin and unbalanced beer...

BlackHaddock (4218) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2014
3rd Oct 2014 on-tap inside the breweries Visitor Centre Bar after a tour through their strange presentations (do the tour to understand what I mean). Amber with an off-white head that tried to stay the distance. Aroma is weak, some maltiness but very little of anything really. The taste was semi-sweet malt with a caramel twist and a mini hop presence to keep the sweetness in check (see what I did there?). Slight bitter finish.

Hermod (3509) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Tap@sbwf14. Amber colour, thick white head. Grainy malty aroma, some hay. Flavor has grain, sweetness, butter, hint of metal. Mild bitter finish.

jookos (2749) - FINLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Tap@sbwf14. Amber clear, frothy foamy. Malty nose- caramels, light toffee, light nuttyness, autumny leafy herbs. Soft quite nice round body. Some blandness, but surprisingly nice for something I assume is bulk. Mellow, easily drunk with a slight watery caramel finish.

Rotin (94) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle 0,5l. Low grassy hop aroma. Amber color, moderately carbonated. Flavor of both- pilsner and caramel- malts is present, bitterness at low level. Balance is slightly towards sweetness. Bitter, but unpleasant aftertaste. Just commercial czech beer, acceptable, nothing more.
