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.

Editor’s note: Formerly ABV used to be 4%.

gunnar (5598) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2011
Bottle from Zly Casy bottle shop Prague. Pours clear amber/dark golden with a big creamy off-white head. Aroma is light fresh, grassy hops and moderate sweet caramel. Taste is caramel with noticeable grassy hops, balanced well , so the focus point is on the sweet malty side. Lingering dry hoppy aftertaste. Good beer.

Marko (4029) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 22, 2014
Brežice Beer Fest. Typical dark amber polotmavé body with a small white head. Mild sweetish aroma, caramel and not much else really. Sticky malt-intensive taste, again with aggressive (?!) caramel, while being slightly too watery. What? All in all, can’t say I liked it that much, but it’s OK for the ABV and all. Not my style.

bluevegie (3058) - 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.

Douberd (2486) - 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.
