A common warning ... I don't drink many lagers.

A- Poured into pint glass, giving light lemony yellow out of bottle with a tilt toward that of apple juice in glass. 2-finger frothy, white head that perseveres at one-finger perpetually. Large lacing, highly effervescent.

S- Grassy, malty, light bittering hop.

T- Creamy and bitter. Sweetness with a smooth bitter finish.

M- Good mouthfeel for the color of the beer (heavier than expected). Slight bitter after-feel, coats mouth nicely.

O- Very good pilsner. Light, smooth and perfect beer for spring/summer.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottled on date of 1/25/12 on front label. It was a pale straw color with moderate carb streams. It had a small head that quickly settled into a good collar with some wisps. Mild lacing that slowly drifts back into the drink with a little sticking.

Grassy, biscuity and spicy - classic Saaz aroma to it. Really liked the spice. Moderate malt base as well. The taste was spicy and grassy with enough sweet from the malt to make a great balance. One of the best Czech pilsener's I've had. Medium mouthfeel with crisp carbonation and a spicy aftertaste.

Overall, really enjoyed this one and recommend if you can get it. Could see this going down nice and refreshing on a hot Texas summer day. Available here in Texas. Rotation - 6xer or 2 during the summer and maybe occasional single in the WTH mix six. [O;Y]

My buddy Dave picked this up at GD and flew some home for me. Thanks mate.

Clear pale yellow body with a nice fluffy head.
Decent lacing and retention. Nice looker. 

Nose gives some nice light grainy maltiness and a mild floral hop aroma. 

Tastes good. Light malt flavors blend with the mild bitterness and a nice hop flavor. Not very sweet nor dry. Pretty middle of the road as far as pils go in that respect, which is nice. I don't like the sweeter versions.  

Very solid easy drinker. Would be a nice summer beer. Def worth a try.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pilsner glass. Had a pale color and a clear texture. There was an inch of creamy, fairly long-lasting head. Excellent lacing.

S: A lot of hops in the aroma, along with a hint of citrus, too.

T: Tasted of bitter hops, along with some malt, citrus (a little lemon), and slight tinge of grain in the finish. A vibrant, straightforward flavor.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Nothing overly groundbreaking here, but still a simple, enjoyable pilsner.

Great Divide Nomad Pilsner: Time to take a break from the intense signature Imperial Russian Stouts and Double IPA’s? The Great Divide Nomad Pilsner would be a good choice. In a glass, the Nomad has a sparkling sunlight color and brilliant white head. The fruity aromas get more intense and bready as you get deeper into this brew. The flavors are very balanced. Neither the malt sweetness nor the bitterness of the hops are overpowering or out of place. Not many brewers can create a pilsner with this amount of elegance.
