2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a bright golden color with no head retention (from the bottle). Somewhat skunky aroma typical of this type of beer. Flavor is well balanced with the hop bitterness coming through to overpower the malt in the finish. Quite refreshing for a summer afternoon.

Good Pils. Malty and hoppy, not as dry as I prefer (I like Northern German Pils), but a quite drinkable beer

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear gold-yellow colour with little head. Big hop aroma. Taste similar to Pilsner Urquell with a nice malt flavour but with more pronounced hops. Long lasting hop bitterness aftertaste. Very nice.

Minimal head, somewhat dry taste, evident hops.
Good Euro-pilsener, although this style seems to be less hoppy in recent years.

A very decent Pilsner. Pretty much in the same class as Pilsner Urquell and Czechvar.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Looks like straw and tastes like grass, Staropramen is almost everything you’d expect from a Czech lager. A pleasant skunkiness ostentatiously wafts out of the glass, with complimentary scents of vinyl and autumn leaves. On the palate there is surprising sweetness, which upsets the hop balance one looks for in a world-class lager. There’s a nice, bitter middle, but almost nothing at the beginning and end. A pleasant summer sipper, nothing special.
