Great Divide Brewing Company Nomad

What the brewers say

NOMAD is our spin on the classic Bohemian Pilsner style. The journey starts with German malts and Saaz hops that offer a lively floral nose and crispness, while a full 5 weeks of lagering time ensures that Nomad is eminently balanced. This Nomad may wander, but it’s got some serious roots.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Subtle noble hops, earthy or woody. Bready pils malt and some sulfur notes with a bit of corn-like sweetness.”

Flavor: “Full hops flavor without being resinous. Sweet malt plays a supporting role. Toasty malt notes are a little different for the style. Lively carbonation complements pungent hops, leading right into the closing bitterness.”

Overall: “Lots of hops flavor in an American hops-centric pilsner. Malt is adequate to support hops. This beer has a message, and it is ‘hops.’ Aside from the toasty character, this is fairly straightforward.”
