Amber Lager
Bernard’s Amber Lager is a unique half-dark lager produced by an original brewing recipe of the Barnard’s Family Brewery. The light caramel-type malt endows this beer with a balanced bitter taste, fine toffee aroma, and full body. It is an unpasteurized beer enriched with yeast during bottling.

Brew_Cat (55) - Athens, GREECE - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle shared @ Pulp Pub. Pours dark amber color, white diminishing head, medium body, interesting malt character, roasty, cereal, hints of resin, dry bitter finish. An ok beer, I guess, and kind of hard to find but nothing as memorable.
