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.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Light malty aroma, sweet, brown sugar. Coffee. Dark uby brown clear with small head. Light palate with low carb. Light smoky taste, light tartness. Finish has some lactic acidity. Clean after, maybe a little bitter.

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.

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.

maeib (8576) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2009
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.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2004
A deep red beer with an OK head. The aroma is sour malty with notes of hops. The flavor is boring with notes of caramel and a dry end.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) A dark golden lager and rather unlike anything Czech I’ve had before - resembles a "Gl. Carlsberg Lager". Not sweet but fresh and quenching although not terribly aromatic.

PorterPounder (5345) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 500 ml swing top bottle. Light copper, cola colored pour, spritzy off white head. Aroma of fresh lake water. Brief caramel in the flavor with some nuttiness and a metallic finish. Thinnish mouthfeel with too much carbonation. Unremarkable.

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)
