Bottle 500 ml
Aroma lighter tone for dark lager , fresh light with hints of hops. Slight mineral notes with sugars.6+
Appearance dark amber-brown with medium , rather short lived head. Still neat contrast. 3-
Flavor and Palate : medium bodied. This beer has exceptional texture paired with good depth. Top made of gently approaching hop bellow woody hint followed by brown sugars. Overall drier than expected. Has slight bitter edge to it. Pleasant solid brew.

Light brown hue, average head. Sweet malty aroma - nice and refreshing. Good mouthfeel, smooth, refined dunkel. Good balance preserved. One of better dunkels around. Kraft beer.

Pours a light brown with a small head. Decent malt taste but nothing amazing, was perhaps expecting something a touch more complex. Still a good beer though.

Shared bottle in Krakow. A fine beer but overall I found it a little too sweet for me. it was almost syrupy at times honestly. Okay.

On tap (gravity dispense) at Great British Beer Festival, day 3 on 6 August 2009 as Bernard Jantar. Darkish lager - oak colour. Strong malt aroma. Slightly sweet flavour. Respectable but not as enjoyable as of some other Bernard beers Ive tried - a bit too much sweetness for me.

Közepesen sötét vörösesbarnás, házi szamócaszörphöz hasonlatos színe van, enyhén sárgás, piszkosfehér habbal. Illatában is van valami szamócás, bogyós gyümölcsös aroma, némi karamellel kiegészülve. Meglehetősen vizes, de a gyümölcsös édesség végig érződik, és elég száraz, jól csúszik, nekem tulajdonképpen bejött, de semmi különös...

Not too bad, just a generic beer. Overall not too much to set it apart but not bad, just average bready nutty caramel light bodied.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
