870. Staropramen Lager

Win came to New York in mid-September for a couple of Mets games against the Braves. I don't rememeber the chronology, but I believe we ended up at a beer garden in Queens after the Saturday night double-header. We played backgammon and had many pitchers of beer between the three of us.

Pours a clear golden. Topped by a merengue-like, off-white head. Good retention and lacing. The aroma is fairly light overall, though there are some nice malt notes and a hint of hops.

Neutral and toasty upfront, moving into a nice caramel sweetness. Balanced by a nice resiny hop presence in the finish.

Flavorful and refreshing, a very drinkable pilsener.
