Nordic är en ljus lager i nordisk småbryggeristil. Elegant maltig och rejält humlad med påtaglig beska och frisk eftersmak med citruskaraktär. Nordic on moderni vaalea lager, edustaen pohjoismaista pienpanimotyyliä. Tyylikkäästi maltainen ja reilusti humaloitu. Runsas katkeruus ja raikas sitrushedelmäinen jälkimaku.

Bottled (thanks laiti!). Golden colour, small foamy white head. Aroma is fruity and floral hops along with some slight maltyness. Flavour is a big time floral and fruity hoppyness with a very grassy bitter edge to it. Richly hopped lager.

Draught@Olutravintola Pikkulintu
Clear golden color, small white head. Sweetish tropical fruity aroma: pineappel, citrus, lychee. Light bodied. Citrus-grapefruity hoppyness with light lime peel flavor in the finish. Pale malty backbone. Quite light and straightforward. Lots of similar brews lately.

SirLimpsalot (2663) - SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2011
Doft: gamla cykelslanger. Smak: Ganska bitter humle och gummi. Rejält överhumlad och det får mig att undra på vad dom försöker dölja. Inte god tyvärr!

gyllenbock (5796) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2011
Bottle from K-Market Kamppi, Helsinki. Very clear golden with a small head. Aroma and taste of butter, some "rubber" and some light notes of fruit. Thin and with a short aftertaste. Not my cup of tea.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2011
{thoughts} The bitterness is a bit stick, but otherwise a refreshing lager with a clean malt profile.

{elements} Strong, brilliant, golden hue; soft, white cream. White grapes and honeyed white bread, peaches. Off-dry, moderate acidity, fullish bitterness; long, hoppy finish feels resinous. Prickly carbonation, medium body, silky texture. 50 cl draft @ GP Nordic.

laiti (7264) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 7, 2011
50 cl bottle, #1101, BBE 26.11.2011.
Aroma has some citrus-like hoppiness and some bread ’n butter. Palate is a bit too thin and mouth feels a bit dry after the hops. Rather hoppy flavour has bread, butter and some gooseberry bush. This would be better without the bread and the goldings-like hops.

SaintMatty (5897) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2011
500ml Bottle - Golden with a white head. Pineapple, grapefruit and passion fruit feature in the really enticing aroma. The taste is tangy, hoppy and bitter with notes of grapefruit juice, pineapple slices in syrup and a fresh and lingering bitter finish. More like an ale than a lager in terms of taste, but taken for what it is, it’s a tasty beer.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2011 Tap (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) (5:2-:6:3:12=2.8
Hoppy water. Dry hops at that. Nice bitter finish. Hop oriented, end of story. Too simple and 1-dimensional. Not unpleasant, but really not grabbing me.
Rerate of: 500ml bottle (K Market, Kamppi)
7 Lovely grapefruity aroma.
3 Rich straw colour, small frothy head.
7 Lovely grapefruity taste too. Citrussy retronasals. Something quite pungent about it, almost nettly.
4 Smooth palate, a little milky, pleasant carbonation. Finish is lovely and bitter, sticky and resiny, and so so bitter. Lasts for ages.
13 No way this is a lager, this is as good as an ale! A total of 3.4 is very rare for lagers. This is what a blond ale should taste like. Nearly on a par with Thornbridge, and for being a bottled beer, this is a really good one. This is as much a prejudice changer as ten fidy.

mile (3426) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle. Light golden, very small and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate malty and sweetish aroma, sweetish fruity citrus hoppyness. Body is light to moderate, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, citrus hoppyness, faint fruitiness. Finish is average, malty – lightly grainy and dryish, hoppyness is sharp and harsh. Lager with lots of hoppyness – aroma and flavor are not in balance, hoppyness in the finish gets too harsh without any fruitiness.
