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 Lek (Premium Lager) 12")

Bottle. Clear gold with a fluffy head. Run of the mill Czech lager - grassy hops and bready yeast with a dry finish. Decent lager.

Gold pour, with thin head. Some initial corn aroma, then hops. Taste is of hops mainly, and some corn aftertaste. Decent for its price

This has a strange fresh, herbal smell and not really in a good way. The taste is very thin and watery with a weak malt flavour.

Graham77 (316) - Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2013
500ml bottle from Tesco. Well worth the 1 asking price. Not much by way of aroma from this. A wee bit cereal perhaps a faintly metallic edge. But it is full flavoured and bodied. Would buy again.

Really poor aroma. Taste is somewhat bitter with some crisp hop but a soapy finish makes this way below average for a Bohemian pils.

SarkyNorthener (3347) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle. Pale golden beer with medium frothy head. Slight metalic aroma. Taste is a little metalic and sweet with some grains. Low carbonation. Average for a Bohemian pilsner.

ricardotorero (55) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2013
This lager has some taste and I always like a couple of lagers in the house for when Im in the mood and this one fits the bill as an ok supermarket lager at good price

sm89walt (1838) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2012
500ml bottle. Poured a lively orange colour with a loose, bubbly & fading white head. Grain, citric hop, corn, caramel all with a metallic edge. Medium carbonation, light body, short grassy, pithy bitterness - moderate length finish for the style.
