The magic phrase is "šest piv prosím, muj kamerad zaplati" ("Six beers please, my friend will pay"). Note the use of the genitive with numbers greater than four. As you'll guess from my username, I've spent a fair bit of time in Prague, and Staropramen is simply God's gift to Man. The stuff we get in the UK is brewed under license in Burton-on-Trent, but it's still pretty good - often the only lager with flavour in any given bar :-) They serve it at the postgrad club next door to my department, so I still drink quite a bit.

[If you ever get the chance, try tmave (dark) Staropramen - it rocks. Also Krušovice, which is if anything better.]

czech beer!!

they can't pour beer though in that country, unless you like foamy heads! and lots of it!

ladislav says:

Nah, that's Germany you're thinking of. The Czechs go for about an inch and a half of head, whereas the Germans go for a 1:1 head:beer ratio. And I've seen German bartenders pouring loads of glasses letting them go flat, then putting new heads on them when someone asks for them, thus entirely defeating the point of heads, namely to keep the remaining gas in.

spongevid says:

maybe the places i went to while in czech just were rubbish!

Also been sampling weird beers lately. So far, Staropramen takes the lager crown, Lion Light Ice the light beer one, La Trappe Quadrupel the strong one and Hoegaarden the white/wheat beer one.
