Our unfiltered amber lager is an old, rare, and rather unique German style. Wholesome and buttery, with toasty, bready malts and hints of caramel and toffee, Berne is a smooth and naturally cloudy beer with grassy hops that deliver subtle balance to the palate. Malty, yet dry, simple yet elegant.

Bottle (?, London)
Slightly farty eggy aroma. Deep hazy amber. Bread in the aromas too, and grainy. Taste is also grainy - sweet barley. A touch husky. Finish is a touch husky too, but with a pleasant biting bitternesss laster. Fresh hops in that, in fact, and certainly an approvement on the inauspicious start.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2014
500ml. Muddy particulated red with a dense slender lid. Good German-accented heady unfiltered lager aroma confusing shrub, sesame, thistle sap and banana. That flavour alive with the perfume of a Munchen summer evening beneath the chestnut boughs. Better than their other beers.
