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")

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!!!

dj (574) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2014 2nd rating, May 2014. Scores: 5/3/6/3/15 Bottle, 500ml, 5% ABV. A golden pour with a small head. Aroma of sweet Czech hops, a little spice. Flavour of fresh hops, spice, some underlying citrus. High carbonation. Not bad at all. 1st rating, April 2006. Scores: 2/2/4/3/14 Bottle, 500ml. A small but lasting head. An aroma of malt after the initial pour (perhaps some fruit with a little imagination), but after a minute it’s gone. Light golden appearance. A nice hoppy, slightly bitter finish. Moderate carbonation. Not the best lager in the world, but certainly not the worst either.

AshtonMcCobb (5408) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 19, 2011
50cl bottle of Coop Czech lager. Pours golden with steady bubbles and a decent head. The nose has lemon and pale malt. The taste has lemon, then maybe something herbacious followed by more pale malt. The palte is medium bodied ,with a good texture and a clean finish. Overall, this is a very nicely balanced pilsener.

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2004
Pours with a big white head and usual Bohemian colour. Initially very tasty, full flavour, which gets progressively more watery further into the glass. Some apple, cake and bitterness, with a bit of hops and pepper. Patchy lacing, little fizz. Alright.

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.
