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.
