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.

downender (5877) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2008
Bottle from Tesco, Prague. Deep red amber with a short-lived white head. Caramel and red fruit aroma. A similarly sweet flavour with some apple notes, raisins and a short bitter finish. Ok.

jonas (5469) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2008
Bottle. Chestnut, golden foam. Fresh saaz with light nutty undertones. Malt character stays in the background on this one - a nutty roaastyness with complements a elegant sublte flowery start, light citric notes. Chewy body, light sparkly mouthfeel. Earthy and roasted retronasal. Nice.

imdownthepub (9622) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2008
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml Swing top from Tesco, Plzen. Chestnut with short white head. Sweet, fruity, caramel beer with an odd rubbery note in the body. Still plenty of sugar left from the brew but still a little thin. Fairly average.

swing top bottle(500ml). –Pale brown/reddish coloured, medium sized off white head, dusty caramelish nose. Surprisingly thin beer, some sweet malt, weak hops, light caramel and nothing else. Metallic notes in the finish.

Thanks Ogi for this!
Dark, hazy red body with an off white thick head that went away slowly. Light nose... very light hop and very light caramel. Hmm. Empty taste, weak caramel, nice but too light sweetish maltiness. Light bitterness. The taste is way too weak for its own good. I feel like I’m overrating it quite a lot.

Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized fluffy off-white head. Aroma is sugary malts with some grassyness. Flavour is the same along with some toffeeish notes and slight rubberyness.

Sampled at GBF 2008. Ambder colour, medium beige head. Sugary malt aroma with some grassy hops and butterscotch notes. Yet quite dry with low bitterness.

JorisPPattyn (7715) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2008
Medium but very nicely stable cream-coloured head over hazy chestnut beer. Discreet, but nice nose with earthy, dark leaves and pastry notes - some Maillard? Dry, very earthy & leafy taste. Virtually no restsugars, pretty impressive. Bit of ironoxide in the flavour as well - the water? or more Maiilard? Creamy mouthfeel - not overly well-bodied, but certainly not empty. Very good Dunkel - cheerfully abstaining from the dreaded sweetness that plagues many’s the German sample. Thanks to the people providing - they were right about this one!

a clear rusty brown under a large creamy light beige head. moderately sweet nutty aroma similar to a brown ale. flavors of caramel and roasty nuts. a touch of metallic. light body with a lot of carbonation.
