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.

harrisoni (17351) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2009
At GBBF 2009. Reddish brown gold colour with thick cream head. Toffeeish tasty but above all cold. Enough toffee malt to carry it. Good solid lager.

500ml bottle. Deep chestnut with lasting beige head. I like this, good roast toast malts, some toffee, but not too dominant. Hops on end provide a drying finish. Bit of coffee. Nice.

yngwie (16535) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle. It’s a clear, dark amber to brown beer topped by a dense, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma is quite weak, some dark malts and dried fruits, but it’s at least not bad. Dark malts, dried fruits, some toffee and a little bit of cooked vegetables in the flavor. Medium body, dry, pleasantly carbonated. Some bitterness in the end. An easy drinkable beer, but that’s it. 121124

Draught@GBBF 2009. Dark nutty brown, amber color, small beige head. Saccarine, coffee and caramel in the nose. Medium-bodied. Grassy hoppy, caramelly malty flavor. Some alcoholic bitterness in the aftertaste. Almost like a Baltic Porter.
