Kissmeyer: Nordic Pale Ale

Kissmeyer Nordic Pale Ale is imaginative interpretation of the Pale Ale style and features a unique northern-inspired medley of ingredients. Sweet Gale, Yarrow, Dried Heather Flowers, Rose Hips, and Cranberries comprise its balanced fruit-and-herb bouquet, while a Maple-Syrup addition rounds out the complex character of the beer. The Nordic Pale Ale features intricate herbal nuance, moderate hop presence, and a crisp finish.
