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%.

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.

Butelka, 0,5. Piwo o kolorze czerwonym. Ale w smaku co najwyżej średnie, powiedziałbym, że nawet wodniste, żadnych specyficznych nutek. Nie czułem żadnego karmelu ani innych smaków właściwych dla tego rodzaju piw. Nijako.

Fľaša 0,5 l z pivného kufríka v Lidli. Pekná číra jantárová farba, hustá pena, ktorá ale pomerne rýchlo opadla. Mierna rezkosť, jemná horkosť na konci karamel. Pivo je trochu vodové, škoda, že nemá viac stupňov.

Purs a dark amber brown color, topped with a decent and lasting off-white head. It has a mild malty aroma with pleasant caramel notes later on. Sweet and caramel taste, slightly biscuity as well. Pretty nice.

Marko (4301) - 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.

Borresteijn (5404) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2014
50cl Bottle from Houseofbeer.nl. ABV is 3.8%. Clear amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of some caramel, toast, some veggies, all very faint. Flavour is light, fizzy, caramel, light toast, light metallic bitter finish. Light-bodied, very fizzy. Not very good.

como (249) - POLAND - OCT 8, 2014
Butelka. Aromat słodu z maleńkim dodatkiem ziół. Jest coś miodowo - maślanego. Kolor bursztynowo - czerwony. Piana obfita, drobno pęcherzykowa, szybko opada pozostawiając minimalna warstwę, dość chętnie zdobi szkło. Smak słodowy z niską goryczką, która uwydatnia się po chwili bardziej, przechodząc w ściągające garbniki. Są też nuty octowe. Wysycenie lekko za wysokie.
