2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. The colour is yellow; the foam is at first big, bit it sinks down to a thin white lid quite fast.
The smell is rather strong with some bread-like malt and lots of sweet hops (Saaz?). Fresh - just like you would expect from a Czech Pilsner.
The carbonation is quite strong, a good thing.
The taste got notes of white bread from the malt and a balanced dry hoppy note. The bitterness grows into a fine, very pleasing aftertaste.
I found this Pilsner OK, it does it job but not much more. Can I have some more bitter hops, please?

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark yellow with a large, but quick dissolving white head. Fairly skunky aroma. Reminds me of Grolsch a bit. Pretty good overall. Definately one of the better Pilsners I have tried.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very light colour, very carbonated but a good lager compared to its competitors. This really is a premium lager, with a pleasant bitterness and a good combination of flavours. All in all, okay, for a lager.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2007 Really not into pilsners but this is a good one - nice aromatic hops, bitter without being astringent. soft smooth malt, a little sweet, clean and drinkable. A good lager.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft in Prague. Clear golden and quick disappearing head. Medium body, sweetness and hops. Ok, nothing too special. From other reviews, this beer apparently has lost lots of its quality as of late.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2011 The best draught beer I’ve ever had. Bottle and can afterwards already weaker, as they were some different beers. One of the best Cech Pilsners you can have arond here: Beautiful golden color, with a medium foam, well-balanced taste with a pleasant bitterness at the end. Great aroma.
