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.

I used to think this was great stuff, but now it’s just a standard malty lager..has it changed, or have my tastebuds died?

Pours a very clear deep gold with a slight white head that lasts a while. Aroma is earthy and spicy but mellows out and blends well with the smooth pils malt as it warms a bit. Nice malty flavor with a modest hop bitterness. Very delicate overall. Very smooth due to a slightly lower than average carbonation. Nice finish. Im surprised how well this beer has stood up in the bottle. Usually most czech beers come in stale or skunked. I really liked this beer fresh in Prague last year but I forgot to rate it.

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (500ml). Yay - another international lager (they’re all so DIFFERENT, aren’t they?) . Pours a clear, pale, startling orange - slightly off-white rocky head. Looks flat and unnatural. Smells very skunky - like a mash left out in the sun too long - sour malt, sour hops, linseed oil and dirt. Taste is almost non-existant - slightly sour, slightly bitter, sort of grainy, quick-diminishing with a nasty metallic aftertaste that sticks around a while. How does this thing rate 3/5???

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 29, 2005
On tap, Prague. Yellow with thick white head. A bit malty start but dry overall; a full flavor but generally weak for a 12-degree. Staropramen seems to be the most inconsistent Czech beer when it comes to taps, so try to drink it at a pub that knows how to keep its taps clean and is crowded, so you know it’s fresh.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2005
Couleur dorée, moyenne mousse plutôt diminuante. Arômes de grains, de métal et de houblons floraux et épicés…Saaz et probablement aussi Halertauer. Malt légčrement grillé et houblon herbal, floral. Corps d’épaisseur mince, légčrement sucrée en bouche, finale aqueuse. Filtration et pasteurisation mčnent ŕ de grande déception. Bouteille LCBO, Décembre 2004. Ŕ consommer avant le 13 Juillet 2005.

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 13, 2005
Bottle: Poured a golden color pils with a bubbly extra white head with average retention. Aroma of fresh crisp hops with floral malt. Taste is quite refreshing with again the crisp hops and floral malt making a good impression. Carbonation is great for the style and no skunkyness is a bonus for those imported bottles.

nick76 (4258) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2005
Aroma is grassy hops and hay like malt. Golden color with average head. Flavor is typical for the style sweet with that field of grassy malts and hops. The only real unique thing about this Pils is the hint of mint it has in the otherwise bitter aftertaste. Pretty much as expected with just a little skunk which I am sure is due to the green bottle.

Nothing too great on this, just had to try something new, it was on tap, nothing memorable, but not bad either, this one is in the middle

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2005 Exact same points from the bottle and the tap.

The Lure:
Floral, wooden hops mixed to a minty sweetness present a different hop surface from the Bohemian pils than I know.

The Festivities:
A pillowy malt feel offers candied figs, anise and minty sweetness over the light citrus hop tones. Clearly brewed, mostly malty, and a very satisfying quencher.

Transcendence:
The Czech macros can do it, why not ours?

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2005
(Draught in Prague) Pours pale yellow with a thick white diminishing head. Quite good lacing. Hoppy, toffee nose. Clear toffee flavour. Watery. Almost no bitterness, quite refreshing though.
