Crisp, bitter and easy-drinking
Golden beer with lots of character, 4,5%
Gerstebier (barley beer) is a top-cropping beer that was very popular in the late 19th century before the rise of bottom-cropping beers. This golden, reasonably bitter beer was the response of top-cropping brewers to the lager revolution. Unfortunately, the beer battle was won by lager.
Because of its somewhat lower alcohol by volume, Gerstebier has an easy-drinking character. Full-bodied in flavour.

Floral and spicy hops aroma.
Light body and crisp flavour with a mildly bitter finish.
Mild hops bitterness.
Jopen Gerstebier has the aroma of a top-cropping beer. Deliciously fruity and, with that, the bitter hops. Time for a gulp. And it is literally a gulp. What a bitter beer! The bitterness makes your tongue quiver after every swig. It is hard to pinpoint anything else. But a true thirst-quencher and very easy-drinking with alcohol by volume of only 4.5%. Great summertime beer. And it is intended to be easy-drinking. Once you are used to the bitterness, you will discover more flavours.
