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

Amber color. Ordinary Vienna, just a bit more caramel than the average; dry and unfortunately metallic.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2005
Bottle. Amber colour with a big off-white head. Sweet caramel malty fruity aroma and a thin caramel hoppy taste. Light body and a sweet watery finish.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2005
Amber colour. White foamy head. This one is a disappointment. I´ve expected more from this Czech brew. It´s hard to sense the aroma. Just a grassy feel. Just a little more malt in tast from the Staropramen lager.

Bottled. Pours a clear redish amber, with a frothy white head. Aroma is sweet, dusty malts, some grains and hops. Taste is fruity, fresh, with some malty sweetnes. Short sweet aftertaste.

nbutler11 (1267) - Wiesbaden, Hesse, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2008
Pours like a cider in color from the tap with mild carbonation and a pillowy white head that leaves substantial lacing. Smells and tastes of skunky yeasy and unripe apples. Not the greatest beer, but certainly a thirst quencher.

espenra (916) - Kurland, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2009
33cl bottle. Best before 2009-01-18. Whoops. It poured an amber orange colour with a medium big white foamy head that settled down fast in the glass. The aroma is malty with some grassy notes. The flavour is a bit bitter with notes of grass and malts. It has a short aftertaste. It’s a bit milder than some lagers, but nothing special.

DeanF (1747) - Nunavut, CANADA - JUN 1, 2010
Aroma is barley and some soft hints of grape fruitiness. Colour is dark amber, okay head. Flavour is heavy syrup with dark caramel, and quite sweet. Has quite a bitter finish. Overall it’s just an average dark amber beer.

Mad_Ferret (728) - SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2011
Bottle. Clear brownish amber with a decent creme coloured head that lasts a bit longer if you pour it hard. Aroma is a bit weak and damp with sweet notes of caramel, orange peel, potatoe crisps (!!!) and grassy earthy hops. Taste i a bit sweet with caramel, oranges and a fair grassy bitterness inte aftertaste that lingers a bit. Too bad also with a bit of metal. Body is medium to a bit light with soft carbonation. I used to drink it on tap alot and liking it. On bottle it looses its touch.

Aroma is standard Czech pilsener with added caramel. Flavour is the same. Okay.
