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.

ComradeK (1052) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2011
500ml bottle as Bernard Amber. Pours a mid to dark brown, with a huge white head, average retention and good lacing. The aroma is a mixture of sweeter toffee notes and darker burnt caramel with a hint of coffee. There is a brief hit of quite sweet caramel to start, with some slight pine notes following. It then moves into a quite dark and bitter body, with a weak white coffee flavour in the aftertaste. An unusual beer, but very well balanced. It is neither too complex nor too simple, so it would stand well either as a beer to savour or as a food match. Good stuff.

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2004
Cherrywood colour. Malty flavour - toffee. Very smooth. Some pale malt mixed in there. A hint of milk chocolate complements this nicely.

tseo (153) - Athens, GREECE - MAR 28, 2012
Aroma: Grapes, raisins, cocoa, caramel, cake, tones in a firm, roast aroma. Quite good. Mouthfeel: Oily, foamy medium to full body. Taste: More bitter than the typical dunkel. Hints of toffee and nuts. Grassy hops. Finish: Coffeeish bitterness that intensifies and lasts quite long. Dry and hoppy. Overall: Very nice.

0.5 l bottle from Prague Airport Souvenir Shop. Well, the colour is obviously amber. There is a nice head too. And the taste - some hops, but even more the taste of malts. Really nice.

Botella de 500ml. Copa Pokal de Bernard. Color cobre oscuro y apariencia nublada. Espuma marfil con bastante buena retención. Aromas de malta caramelo, galleta, mermelada de ciruela y leve nota de manzana al horno con subyacentes trazos de anís, hierbas y algo de chocolate. Entrada vivaz, caramelizada y afrutada. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación moderada a moderadamente alta. Paladar sedoso. En el intermedio sabores de frutos oscuros, matices de caramelo, limpio aunque bajo amargor, sutil toque picante y leve madera. Final amargo y sensación reseca y refrescante. Australian Silver Award 2008 500ml bottle. Bernard Footed Pokal glass. Dark copper color, cloudy appearance. Off-white froth, fairly good retention. Caramel malt, biscuit, plum syrup, light baked apple aromas with anise, herbs & slight chocolate on the back. Crispy, caramelized & fruity upfront. Medium body. Moderate to moderately high carbonation. Silky palate. Dark fruit flavors, hints of caramel, clean but low bitterness, subtle spicy & light woody notes in the middle. Bitter finish & refreshing dried sensation.

Erzengel (3546) - 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.
