COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered
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. Pours golden with slight white head. Aroma of hops, crisp, generic pilsener flavour. Not much to critique, but not a bad beer.

Bottle brown, 500 ml
Appearance: Pours pure and pale golden body with off - white, dense, slowly decreasing, even a bit rocky head. Carbonation of body is mild to mdium. Head gives some lacing being quite good as for Pale Lager. it reminds me typical Bohemian Pilsener style from its appearance not a Pale Lager as it’s categorized.
Aroma: Very gentle, first like mineral and graphite with some hints of chalkyness, slightly citrusy and lemon like, but very faint, alcohol is very well hidden, generally weak aroma, some maltyness and honey at the background.
Flavour: Fresh, refrashing, sweet and bitter on the tongue in a gentle manner, grainy, thin,weak, some strange hints of fish, but all in all not disturbing, bit thin but quite decent, juicy. Finish duration is medium.
Palate: Palate is interesting, fresh hoppy nose, bitterness on palate, grainy - malty sweetness, finish feel is grainy, very nice and interesting, like of good Pilsener not a Pale Lager.

scotty (1131) - SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2008
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.

Thylacine (526) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - OCT 30, 2007
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.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2007
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?
