Festival of Beers: Staropramen and Spaten

i didn't drink both of these on one night, but they were very similar so i decided to put them in the same post. staropramen premium lager is a czech pale lager from prague. it was a satisfying pale beer, light and crisp. nothing particularly special, but certainly better than a bud or a coors. would have been very good with a sausage or something.

spaten premium lager was much the same. this one's from munich in bavaria, but it was also a good solid pale beer with a crisp taste. would have also been good with some standard central european fare, like sausage and potatoes. this one seemed a little smoother, though. perhaps not as bitter on the end.

i'm not much of a beer connoisseur, so i couldn't really tell much difference between these two. they were both good, standard pale beers.

overall assessment: i liked both of them, and am likely to purchase them in the future, but perhaps spaten over staropramen.
