COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

inbirraveritas (1217) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 11, 2010
Flip-top bottle. Poured a nice appearance with an amber colour and a fine pored, pale brown head, which remained creamy on its top, carbonation was average. After it taked enough air, the smell was grassy with some caramell and yeast. Tasteing started crisp, the flavour was of light toffee (and unfortunately a bit cardboard-liked, too) mouthfeel was rather watery than medium. The middle was ruled of the grassy hops, the caramell malt was low-keyed. The finish was of some spicyness and dry, which remained in an average-kinded aftertaste. I’ve tasted it for one time in the past and kept it like a better kinded vienna/dunkel in my memory, but at this time it wasn’t really impressive...

Rune (7822) - Tromsř, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2010
500ml flip-top bottle from bestillingsutvalget, Systembolaget. Beige, one-finger lacing-head. Shining brown coloured body. Smell of mid-sweet grainy malts. Chocolate-caramel malts in flavour supported by dry, herbal hops towards the ending. Soft in the mouth. Medium bodied, and really a well composed dunkel. Enjoyed while watching Sábliková on TV, running very fast on 3000m. Good Czech beer and even better Czech speed skater (Tromsř, 09.01.2010).

rozsoma (462) - HUNGARY - DEC 6, 2009
i’ve expected more from this beer (because of the Bernard Cerné), so now i’m a little bit disappointed. Nice ruby colour with a small frothy head. Weak body, a bit stinky aroma, paper-like flavour, anyway featureless.

Swing-top bottle. Tangy chocolate-caramel malt aroma. Reddish brown color with large tan head. Light sweet caramel malt - watery, metallic finish. Light body. Decent flavor for what’s there but too light.

Ungstrup (29174) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2009
Bottled. A dark amber beer with a thin tan head. The aroma has notes of malt, metallic hops, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, straw, and metallic hops, leading to a dry, bitter, and metallic finish.

Finn (4032) - Tromsř, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2009
Flaske 0,5l fra bestillingsutvalget til Systembolaget. Gyldenbrun pĺ farge. Hřyt luftig skum som varer noen minutter men flater nesten helt ut. Aromaen er maltig med litt frukt. Smaken er avrundet og sammensatt fřrst med innslag av frukt sĺ litt rřstet malt og krydder. Glir over i en třrr bitterhet. KI=5
