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.

KyotoLefty (6574) - 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.

evilempire (135) - sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2008
draught in Praha. My first Czech beer, and a good introduction. brown in colour, taking the best elements from the dark and the light. All the better for being unpasteurised, it is reminiscent of a mild, not too sweet, with hints of roast and coffee, and a dry finish

kwik-lime (1342) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2011
Pours a light brown with a small head. Decent malt taste but nothing amazing, was perhaps expecting something a touch more complex. Still a good beer though.

yespr (31480) - 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.
