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.

Eructoblaster (3477) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2004
On tap at Soldaten Svejk, Stockholm. Dark amber body topped with a thick off-white foamy head. Nice malty/hoppy aroma with flowery and herbal notes. Mild texture and hoppy taste with light flowery hints. Finish has character but lacks some lenght. Nice stuff.

WeeHeavySD (3361) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 3, 2009
500ml bottle bonus from TheBeerSommieller. This was obnoxious to find in the database. Pours deep amber with a tan head. Nose is sweet and malty and slightly reminiscent of an alt. Taste is sweet and drinkable, and overall not bad at all. Nice to drink something different like this every so often.

vipinvelp (3160) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - FEB 12, 2014
Beautiful dark ruby color with big lacing light brown foam head. Aroma is bit week, some light caramel. Taste also not too outspoken, resembles a German alt beer. Still OK. (Moscow 201402)

Sweet malty aroma, ruby, small toffee head. Flavour is malt with some mild hops as well.Light bodied, mellow. Most interesting, has such a different colour for the flavour, which to me is a fine lager? Thanks Sammy.

northropfrye (2913) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 20, 2015
My first ever polotmavy . Can’t say this is a particularly exciting style but a hard to find one I guess. Bottle at Sir Williams ljubljana . Dark red amber body white head. Sweet malty aroma. Tate is sweet and grainy but watery finish . Some acidity and lactose on the nose .

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.

Vignale (2718) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2015
Flaska frĺn SB. Bärnstensfärgad, klar med krämig skumpuck. En riktigt maltig sak som inte blir för tung och som balanseras bra av en pĺtaglig örtig lite kryddig beska. Lätt smörig, limpa, brödkryddor. Lite metall i eftersmaken. Rejält rustik, relativt torr med bra balans. Trevlig.

ElDesmadre (2507) - 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.
