Being in Prague, I took the metro to Florenc. Not far from the metro station, in Křižiková street, one of the more interesting restaurants in Prague is found. Pivovarský Klub specializes in beers, and in addition to a fantastic selection of bottled beers there are always six different brews on tap.
I liked Pivovarský Klub a lot on my first visits earlier this year. The house beer, Štěpán Světlý Ležák, was unfortunately only available once. Therefore I was happy to see draughted Štěpán back on the beer menu this time around.
But I was very disappointed while tasting the beer this time around. There were little aromas and little taste from Štěpán. In all it was an extremely boring beer, and it was nothing like the tasty beer I had earlier in the year. Talking to expats living in Prague, I have heard that Štěpán is a hit or miss-beer at the moment. Sometimes it is bad, but at other times it is an excellent golden lager.
There was not time for more than one beer at this visit, but I will be back giving Štěpán another chance.
