This beer/brewery introduced me to the craft craze a few years ago. I haven't been able to try Gerst again until now as Yazoo only distributes in the south. Overall, it's a very refreshing summer brew. Taste reminds me of Alaskan Amber, both of which are like a crisper/better version of Newcastle. I'll probably share the rest of these this summer on the lake. Who knows, it may introduce some friends to good craft beer.

3.65/5 rDev +4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Had on tap in a pint glass.
Pours a clear medium amber with a nice one finger white head. Fairly good head retention on a beer this light.
Lots of caramel in the aroma along with a moderate dose of grassy hops. Some hay and toast as well.
The flavor is somewhat sweet with some light toffee and toasted malt. A quick touch of fruit from the yeast along with some grass and hay. Mouthfeel is smooth and light with a pretty dry finish making this quite drinkable.
Overall, a tasty, sessionable beer. I was surprised at how good this is and could easily see putting back a few on a hot day.

A - Pours a honey color with an amber hue. Has a small 1/2 finger offwhite head with little retention and no lacing
S - light aromas. Fairly sweet smelling. Mainly caramel with hints off coffee
T - Much like the aroma. Sweet and malty. Caramel up front with a nice nutty finish. Hints of coffee are present throughout as well
M - Light to Medium body. Has a fairly dry finish. Smooth drinking for sure
O - An easy drinking brown. This would bea good beer to introduce someone to craft beer with. Definately sessionable. Would be enjoyable on a hot day.
