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.

- Alcoholpercentage van 4,7% - Redelijk biertje destijds gedronken - Niet verkeerd, maar heb naar mijn smaak veel lekkerder biertjes gedronken - Vandaar mijn niet al te hoge waardering uiteindelijk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bov (9815) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 26, 2014
from Au Grain d’Orge, Neuchâtel - light hazy reddish-brown beer under a long lasting creamy beige foam; nice lacework; a hint of toasted malt, caramel and flowers play together; medium-bodied and light tart; the finish is decently bitter, dry and shows corny and caramelish notes

Zarkam (466) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2014
500ml bottle from supermarket in Brno, clear copper colour, small fully vanishing rocky off-white head, not much lacing. Moderately malty aroma of hay, caramel and toast with moderate earthy, peppery and floral hops. Taste is initially bittersweet and slightly acidic, turning into a moderately bitter finish with some roastiness. Medium body, oily mouthfeel, average carbonation. A fairly nice and way more characeterful than most amber lager and a cool bottle for homebrews as a bonus.

maley1 (807) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 17, 2014
Clear dark amber pour with large foamy off white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, bready and slight fruit. Taste of malts, toffee, caramel, bread dough and slight hops. Full bodied, softer carbonation, heavy thick mouthfeel, slight hops on the finish and heavy cloying toffee to end. A little too sweet and chewy.

If you want to go for lager category you are bored with pale and dark is too roasty for you try semi-dark from Bernard. It is not so bitter as pale and thanks for the caramel malts it is slightly sweet. Very drinkable unpasteurized lager with addition of yeast.

Erzengel (3554) - 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

bhensonb (11533) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle from a shop in the castle in Prague. Poured a light gusher, dark copper with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is malt with a little hop. Med body. It’s heading for a hoppy dunkel, but doesn’t get there. Pretty hoppy in the finish. Nice to drink.

Dark amber color with big consistent white head. Aroma hops and a little bit grass. Taste is well balanced combination of hops and roasted malts. I like this beer, excellent choice for refreshment.
