On tap (gravity dispense) at Great British Beer Festival, day 3 on 6 August 2009 as Bernard Jantar. Darkish lager - oak colour. Strong malt aroma. Slightly sweet flavour. Respectable but not as enjoyable as of some other Bernard beers I’ve tried - a bit too much sweetness for me.

Big beige head. Clear deep dark red body with strong
carbonation. Vague earthy caramelly aroma with rubbery notes.
Sweetish earthy caramelly taste with roasty mineraly notes.
Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish earthy rubbery roasted
caramel aftertaste with syrupy rye crisp bread notes. Very nice,
and highly drinkable, with real character. The roasted caramel
flavour is impressively vivid. (0.5l bottle, from Toft Vin,

Bottle 500 ml
Aroma lighter tone for dark lager , fresh light with hints of hops. Slight mineral notes with sugars.6+
Appearance dark amber-brown with medium , rather short lived head. Still neat contrast. 3-
Flavor and Palate : medium bodied. This beer has exceptional texture paired with good depth. Top made of gently approaching hop bellow woody hint followed by brown sugars. Overall drier than expected. Has slight bitter edge to it. Pleasant solid brew.
