Entry number three into Nomad’s Brookie range of easy-drinking classics is a Pilsner that doesn’t quite stick to traditional. Alongside the bread and spice you’d expect from Pils malt and Czech and German hops is a mix of light fruit aromas to let you know this is an Aussie beer, not a Euro lager.
Imagine you’re at a Sunday afternoon barbecue and someone’s brought a nice, crisp salad to go on the side of your plate. Now add some croutons to that salad, a little melon to boost the freshness up to eleven, and perhaps a twist of pepper to give a touch of spice in the back end.
It’s crisp, fresher than fresh, and cleanses the palate like nothing else. All it’s missing is some hot greasy food to cut through.
