Brewed by Cerveza Artesanal Nomade
Style: Scotch Ale/Golden Ale/Blond Ale
A small brewery with a big heart, exploring beer styles that are not necessarily common in South America, a Scotch ale anyone? Nevertheless, the brewery is increasing its popularity amongst the beer drinking public of Chile, and Nomade won gold, silver and bronze in various beer events in the “Beers of America Copa” in 2012. Make no mistake about it, Nomade is an up and coming player in the Chilean beer market.
Review: Bottle of Nomade Scotch Ale, 6.7%ABV
Nomade Scotch Ale, in a Scottish style, is a very pleasant beer made with a fine selection of traditional and smoked malts.
The aroma was a bit fruity and malty.
The taste was a sweet malty flavour with notes of grapes and smoked malts.A small bitter aftertaste that wasn’t overwhelming. It was interesting that it took a short while for the alcohol to kick in, which it did by the end. Found it quite a strong drink to have, and can imagine the fun to be had after a few of these tough boys!
Next up for the Nomade range was to try one of their very tasty Blonde Ales
On pour there was quite a large head that settled very nicely with a small amount of lacing The colour was of a darkish golden tint.
The ale had a very balanced taste that included grains, yeast, citrus and fruit flavours. Quite an interesting mix for an ale but it was damn easy to drink and overall a very enjoyable ale experience. Recommended.
