Amber Lager
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. It is an unpasteurized beer enriched with yeast during bottling.

Cantabrian (1154) - Christchurch NZ, now Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2016
While visiting the amazing ossuary in Sedlec, I had to run out to find a toilet. "Where’s the toilet please?" I asked the bar lady as I rushed into the restaurant. "It’s 10 Koruna..." "Sorry, I didn’t ask for a price. I asked for directions." The bar lady insisted: "It’s 10 Koruna to use the toilet." "You expect me to pay to use the toilet? Just give me a beer and it will be free for me. Now tell me where the hell the toilet is." So I took the Polotmavy. So easy to drink, it came down round and slippery as a ball bearing. Dark as a dunkel, it was malty and ashy, very different from my first Polotmavy, the Master 13.

Cerveja transparente e âmbar escura com espuma de pouca formação. Amargor agradável. Em geral muito boa.

Live rating: My first Polotmavy, 500ml bottle from Glug in the Grainger Market Newcastle. Poured into an English pint. Clear mahogany brown, with a rich off white half inch of mousse for a head. I’m scoring high for looks. Aroma of burnt caramel and dry grass. Fleeting mental comparison with Newcastle Brown: certainly plenty of toffee malt flavour, with a scrape of burnt toast, and a little more hop greenery than is usual for a lager. Nice bitter sweet balance, surprisingly light body, smooth palate. Wife had a sip and thought of Newcastle Brown, too. Tasty.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2017 Doughy yeast and hop aroma. Big head, filtered amber tuby apperance. Not much carbonation. Nice bitterness in the finish though. Average and not very remarkable. Enjoyed the svetly and tmavy from these guys, but this one is less interesting.

mariuszek (1472) - Gdynia, POLAND - AUG 22, 2016
Dark amber, rich head. Malt and light caramel in aroma. Medium body, some caramel in taste. Slightly bitter finish.

Alebarasi (147) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - AUG 19, 2016
Dark mahogany color with beige head. Average bitterness with the background notes of malt, bread, grains and caramel. Kinda dry beer with nice hoppy finish. Avergae carbonation. Refreshing lager.

vinivini (2821) - Gomel, BELARUS - AUG 19, 2016
Custom bottle opening with light gushing (not the first Bernard bottle to do that). Copper colour, clear. Tall off-white frothy head. Good retention. Smells of caramel malts, toast, hay, minimal metal. Light to medium body. Oily. The flavour is firstly pretty metallic. Later the real points of the brew show. Semidry, caramelly, light to medium grassy bitterness. I’m ready to forget the start of the trying. Now it’s a perfectly balanced semidark lager. It’s good. The story of the keeping of that custom bottles is quite discussional.

Wendigo (634) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 19, 2016
0.5l bottle. Roasted malts aroma and caramel. Deep amber color, thick white head. Taste of malts and caramel notes. Medium body, watery texture, average carbonation and bitter finish with caramel notes.

OminouSC2 (836) - Mora, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2016
Amber color. Sweet aromas, caramel, bread. Sweet taste, bread, caramel, slight bitterness.

500ml. Drunk straight from the bottle. Sweet caramel aroma. Roasty taste and lasting palate. Good.
