Bernard 12 Czech dark lager from Yamaya 5% A deep cola brown with a rich bready chocolate malt aroma. Medium to light bodied and dry with a good rich dose of chocolate. This is a solid dark lager in decent shape with good maltiness and balance.

Et flot hvidt skum der holder lćnge. Ellers smager den meget fyldig kornsmag. Eftersmagen er dog en smule synketisk.

DoctorHU (413) - UKRAINE - JUN 27, 2016
500 ml bottle. Pours dark brown color with medium to high off-white, mostly lasting head. Aroma is nutty with notes of noble hops. Texture is bordering on the watery, medium carbonation, medium to light body and a short and sweet finish. Flavour has a nice roastedness that resembles nuttyness from a good brown ale. Not particularly sweet or bitter - rather balanced and with the emphasis on quenchability.
