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.

jamestulloch (3281) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 28, 2016
Bottle from LCBO. Hazy golden body with a medium white head. Lively carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of dried apricot, dry earth, honeyed fig and grass. Flavour of yeast, white pepper, bread and a hint of glue on the finish. Thin to medium body with a light, oily texture. Very fizzy. I’m not sure what this beer is supposed to be. It’s a mess. I couldn’t finish it.

Beardbeerman (333) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2016
Pours a foggy golden topped by a thin fizzy white head showing low retention, and leaving some rare spotted lacing. Very low carbonation. The nose is both fruity and floral with strong pineapple, peaches, grapefruit and heather. Likewise for the taste, though the heather is pretty proeminent. Medium-low mouthfeel but nice palate covering bitterness. Finish is floral with a grassy shift at the end. This is one dry and refreshing fruity ale. Pretty interesting. Cheers!

Kauge (1527) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 16, 2016
Bottle from LCBO. Pours murky orange with persistent creamy white head. The aroma is very pleasantly herbal with cranberry juice. The mild herbs really mix well with the berry sourness. Tastes cranberry juice sweet upfront with herbal and berry bitter in the finish. Crisp thin carbonation, body a bit watery, finish dry. Excellent drinkability despite the domination of herbs and thickish sour berries which I think is always a tricky combination. Really lovely stuff - I’d love a chilled glassful of this while strolling in an Estonian bog in late summer - that’d be bliss!

LouisP (129) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2016
Ce liquide blond à l’effervescence faible a tout pour séduire l’amateur de bière qui recherche une bière rafraîchissante à boire fraiche. Cette collaboration de Beau’s et Kissmayer goûte particulièrement la pêche et les agrumes, ce qui s’allie bien avec l’amertume modérée du liquide. La Nordic Pale Ale, sans être excessivement complexe, la bière fait bien le travail.

Un goût d’agrume léger. Un goût prenant. Le houblon se fait sentir. Une excellente bière.

Arseniq33 (62) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Servie d’une bouteille à deux verres. La bière est dorée/orangée et trouble. Au nez, très herbacé. Un peu de fleurs, un peu d’agrumes, un peu de résine. Ça sent très bon! En bouche, c’est très herbacé au début, mais ça devient sucré en fin de bouche. La finale est bien longue. C’est excessivement bien balancé, et j’en boirais plein.

Bierdimpfe (208) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
Veiled golden color with strong subtle activity and some detritus. Creamy white 2 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with good legs. Aromas of citrus and rich hops. Flavors of smoky pine, lemon, orange, grapes, coriander, clove, caramel, floral and herbal spices. Highly grassy and a little woody. A little sugary with more of a sharp citrus and herbal feel. Slick medium body with prickly carbonation. Medium strength finish of moderate length, ending with a sharp hoppy, citrus, and strong piney feel on the tongue. Overall a pretty good craft that is more like an IPA than the typical APA. Good freshness and a nice taste while overly piney with lots of diacetyl.

Robe dorée-orangée, nez à la fois fruité et houblonné. En bouche la primeur revient à des notes maltés, en équilibre avec ce qui suit : une amertume herbeuse délicate et savoureuse, et la légère pointe d’agrumes. Un parfait équilibre en bouche !
