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.

Bottle shared by Dutchdrebus @ weekly tasting. Clear amber to autumnal brown color, full sized decently lasting off-white head. Smell and taste malts, caramel, slightly raisins, quite surprisingly a decent bitterness. Probably the first polotmavy I will actually finish.

JaKeAFC (513) - ITALY - AUG 20, 2013
50 cl on tap in Brno. Copper color, thick creamy offwhite head, no sparkling, looks like a Bitter. Slightly metallic on the nose. Aroma has come caramel, toffee, very light. Little hops, slighly sweetish but balanced, being pretty flat. Almost no gas, thin body, watery, short finish. But soft and fluffy, surprisingly easy to drink, I would be probably able to dry a keg of this.

MoritzF (8444) - 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
