Czech Beer

Kozel Dark

Kozel Dark: Czech Dark Lager 3.8% (Pivovar Velké Popovice)

Lots of malty toffee and molasses. Quite sweet with a slight taste of cola and nutty bread. Quite flavourful for the abv. 8/10

Staropramen Lager

Staropramen Lager: Czech Pale Lager 5% (Pivovary Staropramen)

Crisp and clean. A bit vegetal and very malty. Highly carbonated, but quite thin bodied. Not much depth, but it’s a decent quality lager. 6.5/10


Pardubice Pilsner

Pardubice Pilsner: Czech Pilsner 5% (Pardubický Pivovar)

Very highly carbonated. Very grainy bready. Full of malt, not much hops. A touch of sweetness, but it’s dry and clean. 7/10


Starobrno Pilsner

Starobrno: Czech Pilsner 5% (Pivovar Starbrno)

Most Bulgarian lagers have been very light. This one is fuller and meatier. Quote a lot of malt and hops, high carbonation, quite dry and mildly bitter. I had it in Bulgaria, and was going to comment that this is way above the other Bulgarian lagers, but turns out it’s Czech. 7/10
