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.

jerohen (2260) - Bussum, - JUL 1, 2012
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.

Tap at Jopen. First Gerstbier Ive ever had. Awesome doughy body. Mellow, supremely sessionable. Creamy body. Maybe hints of corn or wheat. Solid.

chromeotaphor (166) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2016
Een zacht verfrissend bloemig aroma. Dit komt tevens terug in de smaak. Een mooi dorstlessend fris bloemig biertje. Met een lekkere zachte hoppige bittertje in de afdronk. Mooie balans. Aanrader!

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