2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
When I mention to people here in Sweden that I drink beer, they always mention Czech beer, especially Staropramen as if it were some sort of holy grail. Let me assure you, it is not. I struggle to find flavours other than a stuffy stale maltiness and a cloying sweetness that makes me want to go drink something else.

A moderately pleasant Czech pilsner. Not as good as Urquell, but drinkable in a pinch.
A hint of Saaz aroma, and a reasonably dry finish.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2006 Staropramen Premium Beer. 330 ml green long-neck bottle. Deep amber colour. Clear. Medium-sized white head that fades away quickly, but leaves »laces«. Aroma of white bread and alcolhols, with some citrus. Watery mouthfeel. Taste of citrus and white bread. A nice balance between sweetness and the hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. A little dissapointing, however - I find that it lacks comlexity and character.

Dark yellow, very smal head. Slightly skunky aroma, and hints of Cheerios and maybe cherry. Surprisingly bitter at first, then a peppery flavor as well. Also kind of unpolished, and the roughness makes it more interesting.

33 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Golden clear colour with a small head. Light grassy aroma with notes of malt. Malty clean flavour with a hoppy and bitter/dry finish. A well made Pilsener, but someway too average.

Bottle, 330ml. Light ruby colour (??), medicinal smell, not aroma. Taste of not much, maybe some sweet malt. Hoppy and quite good finish.

#18 on the 2006 Europe tour, draft, I think. It’s a run of the mill pilsner, medium head, with a soft gold color. The taste was watery malts.

A decent pilsner. Ive had better and Ive had worse. Nothing memorable.

Bottle. This is pretty good, but I’ve definitely had better pilseners. Should be hoppier and have the flavor of saaz hops.
