Yazoo Brewing Company
Tennessee, United States

Style: Altbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

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.

Had this on 2014-12-08 in Gallatin, TN from a bottle

Light bready aroma. Sourdough, slightly herbal hops. Not much caramel for an amber. Light body and medium high carbonation. Refreshing and fairly interesting for a lower ABV brew. Worth a try.
