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.

Prima bier, thuis uit fles. Mooi van kleur, troebel geel. Mooi wit schuim. Heerlijke dorstlesser, ook gezien het percentage echt niks mis mee.

Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 12A, adapted). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L16169/12 (BBF 31.MAY.2018). AROMA: médium to médium-low malt aroma (grainy) with cardboard notes of the same intensity. APPEARANCE: light gold color and clear. médium white head with médium retention. TASTE: similar to the aroma with cardboard flavor upfront. low malt (grainy-sweet). médium-low bitterness with a dry finish. PALATE: médium-low body with médium carbonation. OVERALL: a sample completely ruined by oxidation although its best before is untill may 2018... Needs to be retasted.

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

wat mout in het aroma en een klein zuurtje. Smaak is hetzelfde vond het echt niet lekker.

Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. In the aroma hay and malt. The unclear orange beer has a small white head. In the taste grains and some sourness. Medium carbonated.

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!

33cl glass at Jopenkerk in Haarlem. Pours a slight hazy orange/golden colour with a decnt white head that quickly diminishes to a thin layer and leaves a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of spices, yeast, hay, grains. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter with a soft dry finish. Notes of hops, honey, hay, spices, yeast. Texture is a bit watery, light bodied with moderate carbonation.

The other sort of pils... Hoppy, light, fresh and sourish in the aftertaste.
