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")

imdownthepub (13370) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2005
Bottled, pasteurised, Vratislav Tesco Premium Czech Lager, 500 ml. Light gold with a head if you poured from a great height. Surprisingly low in carbonation compared to similar lagers, but rather sweet and a little too smooth. Low flavour impact. Not the worst lager I have had, but not great quality either.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - APR 3, 2005
Bottled. Vratislav Premium label Weak, hoppy aroma. Rather bland with notes of sweetness, and a little hoppiness. Not very dry nor bitter in the finish. One of the worse Czech pilsners I had.

Bottle. Hoppy aroma. Drinkable but an unpleasant ’cleaning product’ finish.

Really pale. Good head in pour. Good carbonation. Some fruitiness to get it down.Drying aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel. Nondescript decent and refreshing. This one called Bratislav.

JonMoore (2066) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2004
Deep golden colour with a fast gone white head. Slight malt aroma. Light malt, hops and sweetness in the taste. Light bodied, moderately carbonated, thin mouthfeel, thirst quenching. Nothing special, but drinkable.
