Light brown hue, average head. Sweet malty aroma - nice and refreshing. Good mouthfeel, smooth, refined dunkel. Good balance preserved. One of better dunkels around. Kraft beer.

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.

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.

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.
