Supermarket Own Label beer that used to be brewed by Pivovary Vratislavice until they merged with Prague Breweries. The beer is now made at the Staropramen Brewery. Outlets involved in selling this beer under their own label include: Waitrose, Tesco, Somerfield, Gateway, Thresher, Co-op and United North West.
Since Vratislavice merged with Staropramen the supermaket "Czech Lager" own label brands, if showing 5% abv, may well be the regular Staropramen (which on RateBeer is termed "Staropramen Ležák (Premium Lager) 12")

Bottle from Tesco, doesn’t look like the one in the pic tho! This was ok, quite refreshing stuff.Typically golden in colour the white head dies away a tad too quickly so loses a point for that. On the light side, but good malty flavours, good for the price.

Clear golden colour with a thin white head. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Slightly bitter and crisp dry finish. Not bad. 330 ml green bottle.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2007 330 ml green bottle - Pale gold with thin white head. Medium body and carbonation. Sweet, slightly grassy, with a lightly bitter finish. Not very nice. Possibly slightly off so I may have to be be brave and try it again one day. _____ OK 2 months later and I’ve just had another one. The Previous was definitely a bit off so I’ve upped the score a little.

manager at liquor store i frequent gave me the bottle to try...budweiser import. nice skunky bitter corn aroma ( i love a good skunky one). palate is much the same...slightly sweet and malty followed by a weird hop flavor that leaves a perfumy aftertaste. overall it tastes like a good...bad? malt liquor of the 40 oz. kind. did i mention i have a ’thing’ for skunky beer?

A very refreshing Czech lager. Piss yellow colour, but sweet, refreshing, slightly hoppy taste. Very nice. Bought from Tesco’s - bottle looked nothing like that adjacent!!!

Bottle: Yelow clear colour, with flat head. Aroma of lots of malt and a thin tjekkian dry hpoy finish. Flavor is almost the same, thin body, short finish. That all.

Gethinbeer (2400) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2006
Skunky aroma. Very clear yellow, thin disipitating head. Medium carb. Nice smooth sweet flavour, hint of nuts or something. I cant get to it but its sweet and strange. Kind of like the odd taste.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2006
Bottle, Tesco. Quite dark for the style, a deep gold. Aroma of straw and sugary malt. To taste this is soft, sweet with very little hops and not an awful lot of character. Sweet aftertaste. It’s not bad as a pale lager, which is what I think it is stylewise because of the lack of hops.

greenmanalishi (506) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2006
500ml bottle which, in typical Tescos trend, very closely resembles the Budvar bottle! Golden colour, thin head. Very faint aroma. Hint of fruitiness, quickly taken over by overall bland impression, clinging, artificial finish. Price, at just Ł1 a bottle, is definitely somewhat of a balancing factor.
