3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours golden with a short white head that stayed pretty well. Aromas of saaz hops and light grains and a touch of skunk.. Flavor is light grain and grassy hops on the finish. Crisp and clean on the palate and good carbonation. Pretty drinkable but nothing outstanding here.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Some light hops scent, golden orange pour. Typical foamy lager head. Easy drinking with a bit much hops bite at the end. Some grainyness with an every slight spicy taste.
This was bought for PintByPint at Smokeless Joe in Toronto when a man from the Czech republic asked the bar if anyone had had any Czech beer, Pint mentioned Staropramen. He had me drink it as he had already rated it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yep, skunky, vegetal aroma. Tangy metallic Saaz hop taste with grain hints- your typical Bohunk pilsner, not as good as Pilsner Urquell. 20 years ago Czech Pilsners were my favorite beers, ah but I was so much older then- I’m younger than that now.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a 12 oz. long neck green bottle with a "Best Before End" date, 31/Aug/2006. Made a decent appearance, poured a clear orange hued golden with a small foamy white head that quickly reduced to a thin sticky lacing. Had a grassy hop aroma with a little funky yeastiness and whiffs of sweet alcohol. Good carbonation and a slick, crisp light medium bodied mouth feel, average drinkability. Taste at first had a mild gorse hoppy bitterness to it, followed by a slick sweet pale maltiness.
Not bad, modest drinkability, could be quite quaffable if on sale at a bar, lends itself to mass consumption.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours gold with a thin white head. Smells peppery with the familiar underlying skunkiness that seems to dominate this type of beer. Tastes slightly bitter with some sweet maltiness.
