Great Divide Nomad

Beer: Nomad
Brewery: Great Divide
Style: Czech Pilsner
ABV: 5.4%


 Serving Style: Bottle
Glassware: Pilsner glass
Drinking Establishment: Kerensa’s apartment
Primary Consumer: Kerensa



Sight: Bright yellow, clear body with a very slight tinge of chartreuse. A  thin head quickly recedes.

Smell: Wet, sticky Saaz hops and Munich malts. Finally some Saaz action!

Flavor: Sweeter than it smells, with a bright, intriguing flavor profile. It’s slightly citrusy, a little floral, and a helluva lot of malts ‘n hops. Saaz hops are pretty much the best thing ever, just saying.

Feel: Thin with full carbonation.

Concluding Remarks: Hot damn, this is incredible. Though it calls itself a Bohemian (i.e., Czech) Pilsner, Great Divide’s Nomad is a sassy offspring of the Bavarian and Bohemian Pils, traversing the geographic beerscape in search of hoppier pastures. It has the rich, almost spicy, taste of a Czech, with the delicious malt profile and distinctive watery aftertaste of a German. This might be one of the most delicious Pils ever. I seriously recommend stocking your fridge with Nomad this summer…if I can find some more. This was the last one at my local beer store, and it is with great sorrow to announce that I have not seen one since. So, if you find some, could you let me know? Thanks.
