COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Origin of name: the name of the beer comes for the mutual cooperation between the brewery and the rock group Kern. Taste: Kern combines the classic bitterness of light beers with the sweeter caramel taste of dark beers. These characteristics are not obtained by mixing ready made beer. It obtains its taste by mixing various types of malt during the brewing process. Kern has a reddish to granite color and a pleasant hops to slightly caramel fragrance. It is produced in the attempt to satisfy every beer consumer who likes to combine light and dark beers.

mmahut (957) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle. Body has clear darker pale color, kinda like a fusion, low to medium frosty white head. Aroma has caramel touch, little bit coffee like in the background, quite weak. Taste has high earthy bitterness with light to medium caramel sweetness, really long bitter after taste, balanced to the bitterness across the palate, little bit too much for my taste. Refreshing at first but quite heavy a the end of the bottle. Body is full, high carbonation.

Douberd (2290) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle 500 ml at home, into a big Guinness glass. ABV 3.8% Amber coloured, still transparent , minimal activity in the glass. Two fingers of thick and soapy tan head, with good retention, leaving minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, toffee, malts, kind of fruity. Taste is grassy and malty, nothing very interesting, then some caramel and light toffee, along with faint metal. Medium thin body, average carbonation. Overall okay beer.

JorisPPattyn (7910) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2014
Garnet-amber beer with fast gone off-white head. Rather gassy nose, but all in all - virtually absent nose... Some liquorice, as from miles away. Bit of coffee, parsley - and lots of water. Thirteenth draw from some coloured malts (I suppose). Utterly watery, just some carbonation trying to liven things up. This bottle was part of a gift - otherwise the expression " expensive coloured water" might have sprung to mind. Txs all the same, Peter!

Flaska frĺn SB. Ljus kopparröd vätska med lĺgt skum. Svaga aromer av bröd och säd. Balanserad beska. Mjuk munkänsla och kort eftersmak.
