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.

Leighton (13032) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2010
Draft at Euston Tap. Pours clearish brown with a semi-creamy, tan head. Caramel, chocolate malt and lager aroma. Medium sweet, with faint mocha, nice roast, and lightly crisp bitterness. Light to medium in body with explosive carbonation. Has a sweet finish with more caamel and mild toffee. Good stuff. Carbonation is intense.

bhensonb (11915) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle from a shop in the castle in Prague. Poured a light gusher, dark copper with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is malt with a little hop. Med body. It’s heading for a hoppy dunkel, but doesn’t get there. Pretty hoppy in the finish. Nice to drink.
