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")

harrisoni (16932) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2009 At Chriso’s pre GBBF tasting 09. Yes, my palate was tired, yes it was late, but this was still not a very good lager. 1.5/5 Re-rate as Co op Czech Lager. I like it. Decent pils, not wonderful but does me on the train ride home from Folkestone to Ashford. Refreshing and has sufficient bite on the finish. Fine

MiP (15187) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2009
Bottle, 4.9%. Vinous aroma, not so pleasant. Clear golden colour. Big stable white head. The flavour is also a bit vinous. Like bitter white wine. Medium bitterness, slightly rough, but OK.

imdownthepub (12919) - 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.

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.
