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.

ComradeK (1022) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2011
500ml bottle as Bernard Amber. Pours a mid to dark brown, with a huge white head, average retention and good lacing. The aroma is a mixture of sweeter toffee notes and darker burnt caramel with a hint of coffee. There is a brief hit of quite sweet caramel to start, with some slight pine notes following. It then moves into a quite dark and bitter body, with a weak white coffee flavour in the aftertaste. An unusual beer, but very well balanced. It is neither too complex nor too simple, so it would stand well either as a beer to savour or as a food match. Good stuff.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2005
Bottled. Clear amber colour. Big foamy head, with some laciness. Cookie malt aroma. Mild, slightly caramelly taste. Lightly bitter aftertaste. Average, a little disappointment, as I had expected more from their polotmave, after drinking their tmave.

Ingevara (802) - SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2003
A porterlike rich beer. It has a distinct bitterness, a shy, tempting sweetness and a bit of chocolate. Nice!

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2004
Copper coloured brew with a hint of toffee on the nose. Quite dry and bitter beer with some balancing toffee maltiness but finishes a bit thin. (Draught at Manuel Café, Praha)

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.
