COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

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.

600 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a hazy golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is fruity and floral, spices. Taste is pretty much the same. Quite refreshing.

Hazy golden yellow colour. I’m surprised by the how aggressive the aroma is. it jumps out of the glass with pungent hops and freshly cut Cannabis, herbal grassy and that vanillin note from the ’Myrica gale’. It also has that sort of pineapple citrus note to it. More of the same bitter hoppy and grassy notes complemented by some light vanillin like quality. A very interesting beer that I was worried about trying but super glad I did!

robinvboyer (2984) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
650ml bottle from the lcbo. 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. A nice summer quaff.

Frothmeister (544) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
600ml bottle. Pours a hazy pale orange with a light tan coloured head. The nose is very pine heavy, with light wood notes, and herbs. Taste wise, it’s surprisingly herb heavy. Dry, with a rosemary/thyme hybrid taste, resinous hops, light woody notes, and an interesting floral bitterness. This is a nice change of pace. Decent stuff. I’d buy it again.

rob6239 (613) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
Pretty good stuff. Pours hazy amber colour with good white head that laces glass well from bottle. Aroma is light, earthy, musty. Tasting brings out some pine, a bit of soapy hops.

kevinsenn (1021) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle from LCBO. Pours hazy amber with off-white head. Aroma is fruity and floral, spicy, with pine, and something sharp and "tangy" I can’t put my finger on; it’s quite strong. I don’t taste that "something" in the taste, in which all the ingredients seem to balance out to give a grainy, fruity, floral taste with a bitter finish.

andrewturba (944) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
Pours a hazy golden colour with a large white head settling to a thin ring and little bits of lace left. Aroma is spicy phenols(peppery), earthy, floral, citrus, maybe noble hops. Flavour is herbal, earthy, citrus, spicy, sharp mild-medium bitterness, and mild sweetness possibly from the maple syrup that gives a good balance.

Reimer96 (1159) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head and no lace. Aroma of citrus hops, honey, earth and a nice floral bouquet. Taste of sweet flowers, honey sweetness, citrus hops, light rose hip aad a bit of fruityness. Overall a really nice hoppy pale ale with a complex flavor and Aroma.

TheJester (1775) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
600 mL bottle. Read the description above. This beer tastes exactly like you think that a beer with all of those things in it would taste. In a good way. Not a great way, but a good way. Perhaps less muddled than you’d think.
