COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Labeled as "Amber Lager" in USA

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.

pivnizub (8574) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 19, 2006
Swing-top bottle: Clear amber coloured, bigger fluffy tanned head, sticking to the glass; distrinctive herbal-hoppy nose, covering sweet malt; mild bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied, gentle MF; moderate sweet-malty finish. A rather hop-accented "Rezak", pleasant, but not very impressive..........

strings (377) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 27, 2006
On tap in Cesky Krumlov. A pleasant dunkel, but just a little heavy with not enough flavour to compensate. In fact, preferred the half and half (dark/light) I had just before this one.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2006
Dark brown colored, little beige head. Butter, sweetness, mild coffee in aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is mildly roasted with hops, aftertaste is mildly buttery with hoppy roastiness.

harrisoni (12648) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2006
500ml bottle. Deep chestnut with lasting beige head. I like this, good roast toast malts, some toffee, but not too dominant. Hops on end provide a drying finish. Bit of coffee. Nice.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - NOV 7, 2005
(on tap)Pitch black, poured with a gigantic head, witch hung on throughout the drink. Aroma was molasses-weet, but vague. The taste is dominated by a very strong liqourice and a tad of smoke. Creamy mouth ad low carbonation, makes it highly drinkable i the fall and other semi-cold occasions.

rickgordon (3841) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2005
On draught at The Rover, Göteborg. Dark copper colour. Dusty, caramelly nose. Slight toast malt tone in flavour, also residual sugars, that gives a Belgo touch. Pretty light bodied still. Rich in taste.
Earlier Rating: 9/23/2003 Total Score: 3.3
Draught at Soldaten Svejk, Stockholm. Chestnut brown with a huge off-white head. Fine malty bread aroma. Medium sweet toffeeeish flavour.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) A dark golden lager and rather unlike anything Czech I’ve had before - resembles a "Gl. Carlsberg Lager". Not sweet but fresh and quenching although not terribly aromatic.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2005
Amber reddish colour with a big tan head. Malty aroma with some yeast and a caramel sweetness. Flavor has some dark fruit sweetness and hints of caramel. Dry and light bitter finish.
