COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kissmeyer Nordic Pale Ale is an imaginative interpretation of the Pale Ale style and features a unique northern-inspired medley of ingredients. Sweet Gale, Yarrow, Dried Heather Flowers, Rose Hips, and Cranberries comprise its balanced fruit-and-herb bouquet, while a Maple-Syrup addition rounds out the complex character of the beer. The Nordic pale ale features intricate herbal nuance, moderate hop presence, pleasant dryness, and a crisp finish. A one-man gypsy brewing company, Kissmeyer Beer creates innovative beers with a distinct personal and unique character, brewed to an exemplary degree of technical quality, inspired by and often brewed in collaboration with world-class brewer friends and colleagues. Nordic Pale Ale is a pioneering style for Kissmeyer, intended to fuse the best in modern brewing techniques with ingredients that reflect Nordic and Canadian traditions.

Lagerboy (1209) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
600 ml bottle. Clear deeper orange, firm off-white froth settles and lasts. Pungent herbal floral aroma with some c-malt. Taste is very Gaelic, heather, rose hips, a hint of treacle, pale c-malts, evergreen burps. Average carbonation, light-medium bodied, moderately hopped. Crisp and dry, delightful.

flip_soeperman (580) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2014
Such a delicate yellow hazy floral beer. Not that bitter, and not that sweet. Just a perfect balances of floral fragrances and some herbs in the taste, bit reminiscent of thyme. Great summer beer.

jdobbs (368) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
A very dry, herbal beer. Some great dry, grassy, green hoppy notes, with some minerals, and cereals. Quite floral, and herbaceous. Light honey, and more grassy, green hops in the finish. Quite bitter, but very pleasant

AlainG (1175) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Une blonde voilée ayant une belle mousse légère, et persistante. Un nez qui me surprend, qui est bien herbacé et floral, qui nous transporte sur la Basse Côte-Nord. Le goût n’est pas sans rappeler des tisanes inuites, à base de genévrier et de plantes et d’herbes variées.Il y a une belle amertume sèche et plaisante qui plait à mon palais. (1100-120614)

OOKPIKABLE (65) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
Pours gorgeous amber with thick white head. Aroma of APA spruce and citrus, as well as blueberry. Tastes of flowers, banana, blueberry, banana and the dominant citrus. Refreshing yet complex. A really nice beer.

Dorée/cuivrée, avec un col de couleur crème. Nez d’épices herbacé et d’agrumes. Goût de caramel et d’épices chaudes. Finale légèrement sèche et amer. (Notes du Mondial 2014)
