I've had it in Prague. It was good, but the other's were better. I can't remember the names though.

Prague is a really cool place for a vacation. It's got all the European charm, beer, and a castle!

I had it while in Ostrava I don't recall it being outstanding, but that was in my BMC days. What I am most proud of is the Pilsner Urquell crystal raised embossed glass the bartender sold me for $2 usd. Also picked up their local BMC type beer glass, it was a Radegast.

You can get it any number of places in KC. Tried it two or three times. Always unskunked, never great.

6 weeks unrefrigerated on a boat does nothing for me, although I've noticed that most homebrewers seem to love beer that has been sitting around at room temperature for months.

I had some in Prague. IMO it was on the same level as Pilsner Urquell (which is also a lot better fresh, and can sometimes be found on top in the US), and both were better than Staropramen. Neither is really fantastic but they're both good serviceable lagers.
You, sir, should be ashamed! Fresh Staropramen is a great lager. G-R-E-A-T. Perhaps, you have been misinformed on how delicious beer should taste. It's ok, I forgive you... but I won't forget.

That doesn't mean we drink it at room temperature. It just ages at room temp. It's at least chilled to 45-55 before drinking. But your light lagers are still going to be served cold. I wouldn't imagine lager to ever be good warm.

Just shows how great minds don't think alike all the time...

I was in Prague last year and the P.Urquell and Budvar fresh and on tap (AND in a real-deal Czech drinking establishment where they are slinging this stuff in mugs like it was a life-sustaining substance) is a great experience, and pretty tasty. Totally session stuff.

I did not like Staropramen at all! Thought it was far inferior... hey, one man's opinion and all that...

On a serious note, I never liked Belgian beer until I actually went to Belgium. I spent a week in Bruges, and was forever changed by the experience. You know how most people here have that "epiphany beer," the one brew that changed their life? I had that, as well as an "epiphany woman," and an "epiphany waffle."

Belgium is awesome.

Edited: Had I been able to combine the three into an epiphany beer-woman-waffle experience, I would likely have overdosed on pure liquid awesome, and died.
