3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Old Town Square The lager poured a clear brown color with an off-white head. Good head retention and no lacing. The aroma of roasted malt greets you.
The medium body lager has average carbonation. The taste has some hints of dried fruit. The finish has hints of chocolate in the aftertaste. This is very balanced beer and one of the first of many enjoyed in Prague. Bernard has been a fast growing brewery in the Czech Republic

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 500ml (its appearence deserves separate excitation)
Note: I do not understand the sense of this style and I am afraid I underappreciate it, but I’ll try to have my rate fair.
Firstly, it is not my first nor second beer by Bernard to present extensive gushing, this time I was prepared and haven’t lost much:)
POURS dark ruby-brown (similar to coca-cola), beige head dessipates quickly. Large bubbles.
NOSE is malty, but not too much. Little hints of weathered hop. Cartboard.
MOUTH is malty, low and short bitterness (malty, not hopy), a little caramel.
PALATE: moderate carbonation, watery, drinkable. Low-bodied
OVERALL: Neither of the sensations is strong/remarkable. These are the properties of the style, however it’s not what I search for.
