Starapromen lager is a pale shade of yellow that is completely clear. The white head has good retention and OK lacing.

The aroma has some lemongrass, pale malt and butter.

I could certainly be wrong, but there are a lots of buttery flavors that make me think there is a dicetyl problem with this beer. Underneath the butter a light bitterness and lemongrass from the hops come through, as well as pale malts.

No complaints about the mouthfeel; smooth with fairly active carbonation.

I love a good Czech pils, and when I see them on-tap I almost always order them. This one, however, had something wrong with it.

Serving type: on-tap

Sampling right now on 7/14/14. Comes in a 500ml (16.9 ounce) bottle. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a handled glass "CHEERS-BOSTON" stein mug.

Pours a golden-yellow in color with about a 1/2 finger of a white head that settles to a thin layer on top and sides. LOTS of lacing is seen with each sip, close to rings actually. Very surprised! The aroma is mostly of malts with a hint of floral. Not 'skunky' really as most of the brews that come in a green bottle for some reason. Perfect carbonation. More going on with the taste with the malts, grains, breaddy yeast with a sweet crisp dry finish. More drinking of the brew brings out a light floral taste mixed in there as well. Overall, a decent brew.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Golden yellow in color with an amber hue. Poured with a short fizzy foam that quickly dissipated. Bready and caramel malt aromas are dominant with faint herbal hop and buttery notes. Medium bodied with a slightly oily feel up front followed by a light tangy feel through the middle. Burnt caramel and bready malt flavors up front followed by light herbal hop flavors that try very hard to produce a crisp snap that this style is known for, but it falls a bit short. Finishes with bready, caramel malt aftertaste.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours gold with good clarity and some bubbles are seen rising to the top. A fat head of white foam that leaves a ring and some lacing. Nose is not remarkable. It's clean. Not even too much malty scent. Just a bit of malt scent and somemild hop grass. No fruity esters at all. Faint bit of musky spice as it warms. The taste is smooth mild and very even. Hops balnce this one unobtrusively for a breaddy but light taste. The mouthfeel is medium and has some good bite from carbonation. The spice is as much a part of the mouthfeel as are the bubbles and I like that. The malt is breaddy but not too sweet. Finishes clean and dry with no fruit flavors at all. There is a bit of sweet grass in the drink but it too is very mild. The hops become a bit floral and perfumey as it drinks and it tickles the back palate with that spice and dry bread.

I really like it.
