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

Granat ist sicherlich ein Vienna-Style und dennoch hatte ich immer das Gefühl, ich würde zumindest Granatapfel-ähnliche Aromen spüren. Beeren sicherlich, gemischt mit etwas Karamell. So oder so ist es ein wunderbar einfaches, aber auch sehr süffiges und ganz einfach leckeres. Dieses muss ich noch mal haben - für Probe B.

Sweet malty aroma with a touch of burnt caramel. Medium copper/amber color with a minor head, that fades fast. Rich malty flavor, a touch grainy. Rich med-heavy body. Not much bitterness. Clean finish. Filling!

Shaney (2427) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2012
#238 Schönes rötliches Bernstein mit stabilem Schaum. Das Aroma ist verhalten malzig mit getreidig-brotigen Noten. Im Antrunk dann lieblich-malzig und gehaltvoll geraten. Geschmacklich wirds im Abgang auch herber, ohne röstmalzig zu sein. Gutes Bier! Test vom 29.11.2009, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 13,10,12,12,-,12 - 11,78

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2014 Served in special Granat glass (resembles pilsner glass) at brewery in Prague in 2011 (from notes). A lovely, clear reddish-amber with golden highlights topped by a fluffy off-white head. Head has good duration and leaves lots of coating on the glass. Aroma: medium and light malts with some (Zatek?) hops. T - a rich version of a standard czech lager, with traces of the dark malt flavor of Czech tmavy (dunkel). A particularly nice finish featuring both toasted malt and hops M - medium body; good medium carbonation; slight dryness in finish. O - a fine medium—dark lager well worth seeking out

Recenzja 15 sierpnia 2011 Brunatno-czerwony kolor, całkiem przyjemny owocowo-słodowy zapach, rześki, w pierwszej chwili słodowy smak, który po chwili uwalnia przyjemną goryczkę.

flying_pig (1010) - SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2014
400ml glass on-tap in Potrefená Husa, Prague (49Czk):
Grassy hops & caramel notes come through at the start of this one, alongside some sweetness & a few earthy notes. Some toffee too and a light bitterness & toasted notes that linger.
Reddish amber, a 2cm, creamy, white head that holds very well & leaves some nice lacing too.
Faint, almost spicy hops & caramel start things off here, sugars feature too & there is some further sweetness from some faint vanilla & some butter with sweet malts too.
Clean with a fairly crisp and light-medium body that is well-carbonated & sharp finish. Sweet one and struck a good balance whilst going down quite easily.

Like a pale lager initially but with more sweetness but from the middle on the beer improves on this with a lot of sweet malts & caramel. Not a classic but it is a nice one and certainly one worth trying, particularly if you can find it on-tap anywhere.
