Pale gold in colour with delicately flowery aromas and a taste in which hop crispness and malty softness combines to highly drinkable effect.

Thank you, Central Europe, for brewing the best beers around. So much flavor, and very distinct. This beer makes me want to take a European beer trip.

Very tasty, easy drinking beer. Slightly hoppy, balanced flavor, golden color and white foam. Much better on tap. An all time beer.

Beautifully balanced beer. Good strength flavour, aroma, hops, crispness and sweetness. Great on draft on a hot summer evening. Wonderful!

My favourite of the Czech pilseners. Staropramen is great on tap and in the bottle. Possibly the maltiest flavour of the large Czech producers. Let hoppy aftertaste, but still prevalent, as is common with Czech Pilseners. Unfortunately, not available in Western Canada, where I am, but worth a shot if you run into it.

If you have never tried this beer, I strongly suggest you go out of your way to do so. It is not the best beer in any category, however, I have never found a more drinkable beer. I can drink this any time of the day, with any meal, and if I am in the mood to drink many beers, this would be my only choice. For what it is, its the best of its kind, and I enjoy it with popcorn. Once again, its the most drinkable beer overall that I know of. light sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour. medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, excellent but not overpowering finish.

0.5l can. Weak malty aroma. Some sweet strings on tongue in the aftertaste. Very good balance for malt.

djoeye (895) - Tromsř, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2013
Pours a thick, off-white head and a clear, thin lacing and old half-bubbles left behind. Very mild nice aroma, sweets, biscuits, flowers, malts, hops. Colour is quite light, carbonation very moderate. The taste is very wide, with elements of all one can expect from a classic Czech Světlý Pilsner. Hops, malts, grass. Good mouthfeel. Gentle bitterness, but pretty soft. Aftertaste goes deeper into the jungle with bread-baskets. 0,5L can from Systembolaget - at this time it is not at Vinmonopolet, and I wish it was 4,7%, because then it could be recommende to all supermarkets in my poor country.

Clear in color. Slightly hoppy with little hop flavor. Clean and crisp in flavor. Pretty good. I like it. Good beer for a day of football.

Bottle. White head, yellow body, Malty bitter sweet flavor, not much carbon dioxide (which I like).

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2007
Pours a beautiful golden color with a full froth. Head retention is lasting finally reducing to a full fluffy canopy. Strong aromas of sweet malts and flowery hops. Medium nectar with ample, cotton soft residual effers. This is a nice beer. Good malt backbone balanced by brisk velvety hops. The finish is delightful with a perfect hop bittering component. No offensive nuances at all. Highly recommended.
