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. It is an unpasteurized beer enriched with yeast during bottling.

larsga (6553) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2013
Big beige head. Clear deep dark red body with strong carbonation. Vague earthy caramelly aroma with rubbery notes. Sweetish earthy caramelly taste with roasty mineraly notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish earthy rubbery roasted caramel aftertaste with syrupy rye crisp bread notes. Very nice, and highly drinkable, with real character. The roasted caramel flavour is impressively vivid. (0.5l bottle, from Toft Vin, Copenhagen.)

Shaney (2426) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2013
Das Bernstein schmeckt erstaunlich würzig und ist nicht so malzig wie erwartet. Klingt trocken aus. Obwohl süffig, wäre mir ein dominanterer Malzkörper lieber.
Earlier Rating: 4/3/2013 Total Score: 3.1
Dunkelbraun mit reichlich Schaum. Hefig-würzmalziges Aroma. Im Geschmack schönes Wechselspiel zwischen Süße und Würze des Malzes. Im Finish leicht hopfig. Sehr süffig durch seine Ausgewogenheit.
