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

Bottled. Rich amber pour with an excellent beige head and medium carbonation. Sweet aroma, some spicy malt. Thick and crisp, spicy, malty, tart, finishes mildly bitter. A little fruity sweetness, dry finish though. Very good.

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.

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.

A mild apple aroma. A soft palate with an increasing bitterness. Better than Staropramen 12.

Deep amber colour with a dense head. Pleasant malty aroma with hints of fruits. Flavour has a nice malty base and a pleasant, medium bitter finish. Good stuff.

rarbring (1636) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2013
Aroma: The smell i mostly from the malt, sweet and fruity, prunes and oranges.
Appearance: A clear deep amber beer, an off-white head that leaves lacing.
Taste: The taste is also sweetish, dried dates, plums and apricots. Some bitter orange, and more bitter notes like apricot seeds.
Palate: Rather low carbonation, soft and smooth, but with a long dry feeling.
Overall: A rather good dark lager, interesting fruit associations.
Note: On-tap at Restaurang London, Bryggargatan 2, Stockholm Reviewed 2010-07-05.

Courtesy of Tinus. Thx! 33 cl. green bottle sampled @ RBBSG II. Clear dark amber with little white head. Smell is sweet rye, bread and some brown sugar. Taste is bitter rye, spices, lager yeast, grains, herbs with some brown sugar and caramel, touch fruits. Med, easy drinking lager, not bad at all. I enjoyed it for what it is.
