COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale gold in colour with delicately flowery aromas and a taste in which hop crispness and malty softness combines to highly drinkable effect.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2009 Bottled. Typical Bohemian pils grassy hop aroma and flowery taste. Quite mellow but just not exciting.Score 2.3
Subsequent ratings scored 2.2 and 2.4. Score unchanged.

Artificial flavoured and skunky (blast those green bottles!). This one is a resounding disappointment.

Bottle. Pours a slight amber color. Head is white and fleeting. Aroma of Grass, just a little skunky. Malt with spicy hop mix up with the taste. Decent middle of the road pils

jcc83 (137) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 9, 2004
Pours an attractive golden pilsener shade, with a well-proportioned white head. Aroma is a skunky, grassy scent much like Urquell. Flavor is quite clean and refreshing, with a good hop bite and a somewhat cidery sweetness. Very refreshing and drinkable, but with a nice body to it. I’m glad to have found another good czech pilsener.

This Pilsener was a nice follow-up to Samuel Smith’s Pure Lager, as it proved to be more tasty. A bit more complex as you can taste the hops and malt in a swirling unity. It smells a bit like hay, with a twinge of skunkiness, and the taste is delightful. Light, yet filling, with a nice, cool feel. Highly recommended.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Aroma = slightly skunky, like unto perhaps St. Pauli Girl, although it is a better beer. Other similar beers include Heineken and Pilsener Urquell, but I personally somehow liked this one beer I think. It is overpriced but that’s probably because it’s an import from the Czech Republic. Its taste is lightly malty, maybe a bit smokey, and a little bit bitter. The finish lingers a bit. This is a pretty straight-forward lager but one good at what it does. I was pleasantly surprised, as it proved effective relief from recent, painful malt liquors...yuck.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 8, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2004 (12 oz bottle) "The Star of Prague" is not all that good a beer, and thus grossly overpriced at well over $8 a six-pack; It's lightly malty and smoky, mildly bitter, but fairly sweet, and not in a good way; The sweetness just has this "cheap, poor quality" character to it, and results in a somewhat cloying palate in the finish; It's mildly bitter, but not very hoppy at all; The floral finish just comes out of the blue and seems out of place; Sweet, lightly smoky and malty nose; Light golden color; White head is somewhat small on the pour and soon fades to a very thin layer; Not one of the better Bohemian pilseners, and not something I'd buy again, but unfortunately, since BevMo has this stupid no single bottles rule, I still have five more Staropramens to drink. Sigh...

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Pours a golden color with plenty of fine CO2 and a fluffy white head and sticky lace. Decent head retention. Aroma is skunky and hoppy. Flavor is smooth and lightly sweet with a slightly biting finish. Mouthfeel is light and effervescent with a lingering hop finish. A decent beer for this style.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2005 Pleasant surprise. Nice looking light golden pilsener with a fair, fresh aroma. Good pilsener taste that receded into quite a bitter aftertaste. Not bad, just unexpected. Overall, a really good pilsener that is better than most of the popular ones out there - wonderful on a hot day.

Amber beer, aroma is hoppy and metallic. Flavour is moderately hoppy with biscuit malt. Decent Pilsner. Bottle.
