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.

On draft at brewpub. Hazy golden colored. Malty and grainy nose. Malty flavor, some hops, bread. Some hops in finish. Not very complex but extremely refreshing and drinkable. A beer you could drink all evening. To bad balance and drinkability are appreciated by so few here on Ratebeer.

Keg @ Victorian Craft Beer Café, Halifax. Light golden with a thin head, and a dry, slightly raw hoppy texture. It’s most fruity in its nose, with some of this evident in its taste too.

Gaelic (135) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2016
Light orange golden ale. Looks likea pilsner, only 4,5%. Very hoppy and bitter finish. I miss character, too flat.

nybol (1264) - DENMARK - MAY 19, 2016
En meget humlet øl, som virker lidt for skræftig i forhold til sødmen i øllet, skal nok drikkes om sommeren hvor den kan være godt kold.

PhillyCraft (5309) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2016
At Jopen, pours hazy and medium carbonated golden orange . Clean lager and bread. So easy going but I do enjoy lagers these days when all the hoppy beers are sweet

Gangstergafje (588) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2016
The looks are that of a simple pilsener: golden yellow with a tiny cloudiness. The layer of foam is white and rough and collapses quickly, leaving nothing but a tiny drape. The smell is also that of pilsener, with a little more depth to it. The smell is that of barley and some hops. The taste is pretty much the same: pilsener, but than a little better. The beer is simple but good.

jamaty (1769) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 21, 2016
Dorada miel, de espuma blanca poco duradera. Aroma dulce acaramelado, notas herbales. En boca es bastante cereal, de carácter dulce. Gas notable, cuerpo entre ligero y moderado. Final más seco y amargo. Bastante bebible.
