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.

yespr (30765) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours almost clear and golden hazzlenut brown with an off-white head. Aroma is mild hoppy and mild roasted toffee/breadish malt. Sweet at first but soon showing a bit of hops bitterness. Mild and medium to light bodied. Subdued bitterness and light toffee caramel malt into a smooth finish.

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2004
A deep red beer with an OK head. The aroma is sour malty with notes of hops. The flavor is boring with notes of caramel and a dry end.

Papsoe (25089) - 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.

harrisoni (13286) - 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.

Cherrywood colour. Malty flavour - toffee. Very smooth. Some pale malt mixed in there. A hint of milk chocolate complements this nicely.

Leighton (10542) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2010
Draft at Euston Tap. Pours clearish brown with a semi-creamy, tan head. Caramel, chocolate malt and lager aroma. Medium sweet, with faint mocha, nice roast, and lightly crisp bitterness. Light to medium in body with explosive carbonation. Has a sweet finish with more caamel and mild toffee. Good stuff. Carbonation is intense.
