COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2004
Tap in Pilsen. Quite nice ’melt in your mouth’ flavour as motelpogo would say. Nice soft texture, some soft caramel and toasty malt, doughy malt. Mediumbitter hops in the finish. Couldn’t find too much wrong with it, very drinkable.

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.
