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.

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.

Maria (10164) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2009
It is a beautiful, dark amber beer with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of caramel and malt. The flavour has a light sweetness and smooth, mellow notes of malt and caramel and the finish has a dry, slightly citrussy bitterness. It is a very charming and uncomplicated beer – very easy to drink.

Groovy little dark lager.They had heaps of this @ tesco in Twickenham. Shitloads of roasted bitter chocolate and some of that customary grime you gets in dark lagers. Good sinkable dunkle.

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.
