COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle pour. Yellow with average white head in glass. Cereal and pilsner malt. Some sass. Light body, maybe medium-light for style.Mild earthy hops and biscuits. Light sweetness throughout on tasting. Touch of citrus on finish. Safe, but well executed.

Pint on tap. Light yellow color, clear, good lacing, good little head fades to a nice collar. Nice aroma, crisp appropriate taste, a little "macro" for these guys, i expected something weirder actually. Fine, just fine.

$5.00 for the for the 12 oz. bottle purchased at the Grog. From notes: Grainy; crushed coriander; bitter clementine; LME; Bible paper; and avocados; Wheat-forward finish, accompanied by yeastiness and sweat. I’ve had better; I’ve had worse.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a large fizzy white head that took a while to subside. The nose is a little light in the hops department, though there’s a bit of Saaz coming through. The aroma is mostly bready and doughy pils malt, rather clean smelling. The flavor is driven by the malt as well, with just a light bitterness towards the finish. Still fairly clean overall though, I just wish they bumped up the hops a bit to give it a little more snap. Light bodied with a soft mouthfeel and gentle carbonation. Decent Pilsener, but not up there with the big boys.

Bottled. Yellow pour, white head. Grass, some maltiness, a bit of fruit and some light hops. Decent.

Like everything else in Great Divide’s inventory, Nomad boasts a memorable name and striking bottle artwork. I’ve always loved this brewery’s ability to use vivid colors and sharp contrasts to catch your eye. The brew inside the bottle is eye-catching too. The effervescent golden body is spot-on for the style and the head is just gorgeous - white, frothy, and generous. Though it doesn’t exactly jump out at you, this brew has a solid aroma of sweet malt balanced by the earthy Saaz hops. In terms of appearance and aroma, Nomad has everything that you’d expect from a Pils. It defies your expectations when you taste it, though. Interestingly, the balance leans more toward the earthy, spicy hops than it does for the malt character. In this brew, hops aren’t used simply to create a bitter, clean finish. They’re present in the overall flavor of this beer. While Nomad is extremely crisp and memorable, it may be too different for someone who’s looking to chug a bright, smooth lager.
