Pernstejn Granat, from the town of Pardubice is a pleasant, smooth, and has a lighter body than most dark lagers. This granat has a rich reddish amber color, and sweeter aroma. Having that taste of burnt caramel, typical to granat lagers, it is sweeter, but not overly so. It balances this sweetness well, with hints of nuts and coffee. Only after you’ve swallowed this beer, do you notice a bitter aftertaste.
