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.

Draught at Svejk, Stockholm 2003. This is my kind of beer! Chestnut brown with a rich, off-white head. A lot of malty bread and toffe in both aroma and flavour. Really smooth palate.

Bottle. Chestnut, golden foam. Fresh saaz with light nutty undertones. Malt character stays in the background on this one - a nutty roaastyness with complements a elegant sublte flowery start, light citric notes. Chewy body, light sparkly mouthfeel. Earthy and roasted retronasal. Nice.

Erzengel (5528) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2014
Tolle dunkel-rubinrote Farbe im Glas. Selten ein Bier mit so einer ansprechenden Farbe gesehen!! Der Geruch ist malzig-würzig. Im Antrunk ist das Bier schön malzig mit leicht säuerlicher Note. Zum Hauptteil kommt eine angenehme Herbe hinzu, die sich aber gut mit der malzig-säuerlichen Note verbindet. Sehr süffig. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, herb-malzig mit schön angenehmer leichten Würzigkeit. Trocken.
→ Sehr leckeres Bier! 12/12/13/12

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2004
Tap in Pilsen. Quite nice ’melt in your mouth’ flavour as motelpogo would say. Nice soft texture, some soft caramel and toasty malt, doughy malt. Mediumbitter hops in the finish. Couldn’t find too much wrong with it, very drinkable.

Very coppery, metallic taste. Some hops. Doesn’t come together wonderfully, though I’ve had a limited amount of these beers. Bottle at the Pub Aleman in Santo Domingo during a power blackout.
