Notes / Commercial Description:
Check out a piece of Nashville brewing history! Gerst Brewery was the original Nashville brewery, but never recovered after prohibition. We are excited to partner with the Chandler Family, owners of the Gerst Haus Restaurant, to bring this beer back right where it belongs – Nashville, Tennessee.

This is a very “clean” beer, with mostly German malts and a hint of flaked maize, remaining as true as possible to the original Gerst recipe.

Bottle of local brew, here in Nashville.
Pours a clear, amber color with a decent looking head, leaves just a thin trail of lace behind.
Smells of caramel malt and some grain husk. Minimal hop aroma.
Taste starts with the caramel malt up front, all around more on the sweet side.
Grainy, bitterness comes through at the end.
Mouthfeel and body is light to medium, with moderate carbonation.
Decent for the style, but I have had a couple better examples. Still pretty enjoyable on a hot
humid day.
