1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
A pint poured at The Key in Clapham (London), very carbonated and a clear golden colour with a thick white head. The sharp hoppy aroma common with pilsners, fairly non-descript. A tangy grassy flavour with a hint of banana. Very carbonated in the mouth - not pleasant.

Another wonderful beer from Staropramen, it is probably the tastiest one that I have ever had. As far as I am concerned, it turned out that in this case a Lager glass is convenient as well for use.

On tap pasteurised. Very light, clear, fizzy. A bit over-hopped, with a floral aftertaste. Crisp, but not something I’d choose

On tap, in Prague. Probably the worst beer I had in Prague. Not that it’s horrible, it’s just not as good as some of the others.

Bottle poured a clear golden yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of grain, a bit floral and a hint of the skunk. Palate was light and crisp. Flavors of sweet grain, and a bit of citrus with a crisp, slightly sweet finish.

I was expecting a crap horrid lager, but what i got was wholly unexpected, it was fantastic, a great lager taste and an excellent high carbonation to balance and refresh and served at an alright temperature.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep golden with aromas of malt and green hops. Slightly sweet initially with maybe a citrus note, but finishes strongly bitter with boxboard dryness. This is how I like my lagers.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beer no.24 of my Slovenian beerhunt.
Poured a beautiful golden/orange colour with a smallish white head, lazy carbonation. Odd strong aroma of malt, alcohol, and if my friend was serious, and he persistently claimed he was, pancetta (yeah, right). Malty, bready taste with a light Saazy hopiness, and lemon. Hoppy aftertaste. Maybe a bit watery. Nice enough after all the crap I’ve had to wade through...
