Little bit hazy golden, huge frothy off-white head is medium long, not much lacing. One-sided mild aroma had grain, vegetable, bit flower notes. Stinging nettle should be there so I guess it smells something like this cooked. Very strange spicy flavor, grain, flowers again, something and bit something notes, bit ginger?. Light body, semidry, soft carbonation and feel, semilong finish with flowers and spices. Well hard to describe which is a good thing, interesting. But also bit thin and watery. At least it is bit different. Had this with spicy sausages and that combo was ok: this one nicely supplemented flavors without burying them.This one is made from nettles so that’s the mystery element ofc, was just kidding.

Bottle from lumo (as lumo’s nokkospils). Orange, hazy. Herby green nose, pale malts. Really strong herbal plant-matter flavour, dry, med bittered. Being a fan of pesto, soups etc made of this plant, I’m really enjoting the beer, and the distinctive flavour it has. Might seem over vegetable for others.

Bottle. Golden color, hazy. Soapy aroma with a hint of citrus. Soft yeasty citrus floral flavor with notes of cabbage. Maybe past its peak

Draught@HBF. Slight hazy yellow color, small white head. Grassy, a bit rubbery aroma, nettles. Light bodied. Grassy, a bit sweetish malty flavor. Refreshing but simple. Lingering nettles in the aftertaste.

.2l on tap @ SOPP Pours clear golden with low head. Aroma is malts and hops. Maybe some herbs... Flavor is chili, nettle and malts. Some hops. Nettleflavor is clear. Strange but good try and well made. A bit stingy though.

tlind2 (1159) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Draught@SOPP2013. Tap labeled as "Ruokapuoti Lumon nokkospils". Pale golden color, foamy white head. Unpleasantly sharp, spicy aroma. Bitter, herbal flavor. Medium body, medium carbonation. Thankfully only a sampler.

Unde (422) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2013
Light yellow, really small head which dissolved immediately. Scent has this spicy nettle dominating but underneath is some grassy hop notes. Nettle dominates the flavors, some hops here an there, dries mouth quite heavily. Crispy mouth feel, not that much carbonation but nettles makes the palate unusually crispy. Not that great beer but as an experiment it is definitely unique.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Draught at SOPP 2013. Smell of nettle and hop. Extremely pale yellow, white head. Aroma of nettle, vegetables, herbs. Flat carbon.

Looks like your average pils, pale orange, all clear with some quickly-disappearing head. Nettle really dominates the flavor and aroma. There’s also some hints of the grainy malt body. Body is thin to medium and some bitterness of the hops in the finish. Not my thing really because of the nettle.
