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.

Botella de 500ml. Copa Pokal de Bernard. Color cobre oscuro y apariencia nublada. Espuma marfil con bastante buena retención. Aromas de malta caramelo, galleta, mermelada de ciruela y leve nota de manzana al horno con subyacentes trazos de anís, hierbas y algo de chocolate. Entrada vivaz, caramelizada y afrutada. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación moderada a moderadamente alta. Paladar sedoso. En el intermedio sabores de frutos oscuros, matices de caramelo, limpio aunque bajo amargor, sutil toque picante y leve madera. Final amargo y sensación reseca y refrescante. Australian Silver Award 2008 500ml bottle. Bernard Footed Pokal glass. Dark copper color, cloudy appearance. Off-white froth, fairly good retention. Caramel malt, biscuit, plum syrup, light baked apple aromas with anise, herbs & slight chocolate on the back. Crispy, caramelized & fruity upfront. Medium body. Moderate to moderately high carbonation. Silky palate. Dark fruit flavors, hints of caramel, clean but low bitterness, subtle spicy & light woody notes in the middle. Bitter finish & refreshing dried sensation.

Serapac (366) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle. Very dark amber, almost brown, beige head. Aroma toffee and some malts. Lighter body and less complex/interesting than the Bernard svatecni lezak (tasted side by side). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

@ Havregatan (Thanks Örjan). Light roasted malts and some fruitiness and nuts, some metallic notes in the finish, quite thin in both flavor and aroma, low carbonation.

Disappointed with this beer, from an old well established brewery. The best thing about the beer, the bottle which is great for home brewing.
