COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dit blonde bier van hoge gisting wordt gebrouwen zoals dat tot begin 1900 in Haarlem gebeurde. Het Gerstebier was de bovengistende tegenhanger van Pilsbier dat toen sterk in opkomst was. Het wordt gebrouwen met een flike dosis hop zoals dat vroeger ook gebeurde. Het alcohol percentage van 4,5 werd begin 1900 gehanteerd voor dit biertype. Het bier is licht en verfrissend maar toch uitgesproken karaktervol. Dit bier is beloond met de zilveren European Beerstar 2011.

Flavour is grass, grain, some wheat, mild hayish and cardboardy notes as well as some slight fruits and yeast. Rather strange, but at the same time a quite nice brew.
