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.

Világosbarna, amolyan konyakhoz hasonló szín, a tetején pedig gyorsan elillanó piszkosfehér hab. Az illatában az enyhén pörkölt maláta illatát és a karamellt vettem ki, különösebb élményt nem nyújt a szaglószervünknek. Az íze is főként ezeket rejti magába. Édes jellegű, a végén megjelenő enyhe komlós kesernyés ízzel könnyen csúszik, közepesen testes. Kicsit talán túlzottan is édes. Kétség kívül iható sörről van szó, de túl sokat ne várjunk tőle.

Botttle tasted at „Pivo Söröző”, Bp. Clear dark amber pour with a medium off-white head, which remains filmy. Sweetsourish smell of caramell and nuts. Pleasantly sharp start, mouthfeel is a bit thin, but o:k. Medium kinded aroma of caramell, nuts, grass and yeast, flavour is of toffee and roasted nuts. The finish brings spice, citrus and nutty bitterness along, which remain in a nutty aftertaste. Easy drinkable, pleasant vienna stuff.

0,5 l bottle, bought in a newly opened pub at Hegedűs Gyula utca, Budapest.
Poured deep amber some reddish caramel tones, small lacing light beige head. Moderated aroma with some caramel, toasted grains, sourish yeast, minimal hop. Medium bodied one with a similar flavor profile as the aroma. Some toasted caramel, some yeast, minimal hop. Easy drinkable, good beer for a party but not a very exciting one.

MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2010
(bottle) Slightly hazy, amber with a medium-sized frothy off-white head. Sweet, slightly sugary toast-malty aroma with a tinge of caramel and shy herbal hops. Sweet-bitter flavour, light to almost medium bodied, although it is only a 10°, well-carbonated mouthfeel. Toast-malty taste with light notes of caramel and a discreetly fruity touch; quite dry, moderately bitter finish with a rounded malty sweetness and a touch of herbal hops. Likeable. 14.XI.07

bluevegie (3053) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2010
Clear reddy body with good head that didn’t really hang around. Light aroma, a little floral then some caramel. Taste is mainly malt, caramel is fairly light, sweet, drinkable but just a little bit dull - saying that I don’t always like lagers.
