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.

Bottle 500 ml
Aroma lighter tone for dark lager , fresh light with hints of hops. Slight mineral notes with sugars.6+
Appearance dark amber-brown with medium , rather short lived head. Still neat contrast. 3-
Flavor and Palate : medium bodied. This beer has exceptional texture paired with good depth. Top made of gently approaching hop bellow woody hint followed by brown sugars. Overall drier than expected. Has slight bitter edge to it. Pleasant solid brew.

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.

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.

Erzengel (6242) - 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

Sampled at GBF 2008. Ambder colour, medium beige head. Sugary malt aroma with some grassy hops and butterscotch notes. Yet quite dry with low bitterness.

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.
