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 (8585) - 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..........

Draught GBBF 09. An amber coloured beer with a sponge like whitish head. The aroma is malty biscuity with brown bread. The taste is quite rough burnt bread, fruitcake and oats. Undignified and a little unpleasant in the mouth in some ways.

large and fluffy head, attractive colour. Quite bitter for a polotmavé but very nice. Flavours of roasted malt appear. Quite malty finish and aftertaste.

KyotoLefty (5906) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 21, 2010
Tap at Duende in Prague. Medium Brown, like a dark amber beer, with a white head. Not much aroma at first, too cold, I guess, then it came out in a slightly roasted malt. Flavors of coffee, caramel, iron, and toffee. Not very sweet; strongly roasted. Dry and highly hopped. Medium to lighter body with strong carbonation. Good example of a dry dark lager.
