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%.

MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, 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

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.
