Bernard Bohemian Ale is a Belgian-style Strong Pale Ale brewed by Bernard Family Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tumbler from a bottle.

Appearance

The ale pours a somewhat cloudy burnt orange color and is topped by a finger-thick cap of white froth that shows modest retention. A small amount of lace clings to the glass.

Aroma

Its aroma is musty with a scent of yeast, grain, and a touch of hops.

Flavor

Fruits and spices highlight a robust palate. Tangy citrus flavors of lemon and orange blend with sweet pear and apple. A balance of spices including coriander, pepper, and clove combine with floral and grassy hops. Cracker malt and an earthy yeast flavor tie the palate together.

Mouthfeel

Its feel has a smooth draw that becomes slightly prickly on the backend. Medium body has a shade more than moderate carbonation.

Overall

Its presentation could use better retention and its feel could use a little more carbonation. But its aroma is appropriate for the style and its palate is nothing short of amazing. It’s complex, flavorful, and nicely balanced. The Bernard Bohemian Ale is deserving of its accolades and represents its style well.
