A: Pours a golden color with a frothy head that fades to some lacing.

S: Aroma of some citrus, herbal, bit of sweet malt and grain.

T: Taste is similar with some citrus, malt sweetness and grain. tart bitterness and a fairly clean finish.

F: Fairly light body, crisp with a bit of a grainy feel.

O: Decent beer, reminds me more of a Euro Lager with a bit of character.

500 ml can served cold into a pint glass. Purchased from LCBO for $2.50 CDN.

Appearance - bright clean and clear golden color. Capped by about two fingers of fluffy white head with good retention. Tons of lively bubbles and a good amount of lacing left behind.

Smell - grassy with a few floral aspects. Less biscuity than many others in the style.

Taste - crisp and clean even a bit creamy. The grassy and floral notes carry over into the taste. A bit of a bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - crisp, with above average carbonation. Moderately dry finish.

Overall- a good if not great pilsner, certainly enjoyable, but nothing stands out to separate from others.

Staropramen Prague Lager

A- Pretty, clear, and surprisingly nice head. Thick lacing. Wheat in color, great carbonation bubbles.

S- A little sweet on the nose. Has that smell boring lagers have- like an old sponge. That sounds more negative than it should, particularly for this beer. It’s just an average “beer” smell.

T- Wheaty, light hops. Clean and soapy. Good carbonation, turned out to be a decent lager. Doesn’t blow me away, but it would be fine as a session beer.
