In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Great Divide Brewing Company Nomad

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.”
