Bernard Premium

This 5.0% ABV lager is from the Bernard Family Brewery in the Czech Republic. It is bottle conditioned, with yeast added to the bottle for a final fermentation. The beer pours a dark honey golden in color. There is a tall head of fizzy white foam. The aroma is lots of straw, grass and grain, with a nice barnyard funkiness. The taste is lots of grain and straw, with a strong grassy bitterness on the finish. It is strongly and elegantly carbonated, with a pleasant sting to the mouth and throat. This is excellent, one of the best European lagers I have had in a long while.
