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.

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.

heavy (2218) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 25, 2012
??/03 A 0.5 l bottle brought from an Albert store, Prague. It poured clear reddish body with small head. Fine baked dough and caramel aroma. Flavor is mostly sweet, only slightly dry hoppy. Caramel, some mild notes of fruit and herbal hops are present. Pleasantly smooth palate, fuller in body. Nice, long finish that only reflects the flavor and ends slightly more bitterish than expected. Very nice vienna, enjoyable. Bernard didn’t fail neither this time!

Grima (2154) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle, trade with ruprecht_007. Huge thanx maaaan!
Into the glass pours a deep brown, ruby red beer with a beautiful creamy head that keeps long. It smells malty-caramelly, dark fruits and subtle chocolatey. Starts malty, roasty, with lots of dark fruit, bready, some aroma hops in the background. The middle part has lots of dark malt flavor, also fruity and sour with lots of caramel and roasted malts. Goes into a malty-bitter, very caramelly and fruity finish!

0,5L bottle from supermarket in Kremenchuk, Ukraine. Scents of malts, ginger, some hops, some licorice. Caramel coloured body. Dark brown to amber body. Taste of hops, grains, roasted malts. Mouthfeel normal, just as a beer, well balanced and easy to drink. Aftertaste of bread, sweet malts, a mild ending. Good dark beer.

ElDesmadre (1923) - Mikołów, POLAND - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle. Dark amber with a rather poor head. Aroma is toasted, light caramelly maltiness, nicely blended with the grassy and herbal Saaz hoppy notes, some sweet dried fruit notes and rooibos. Mild taste, toasted maltiness paving the way for a moderately strong, pleasant bitterness with notes of dried fruit. Very pleasant vienna.
