Nomad Brewing Co - Rollin Haze - Hazy Pale Ale - Beer Review

Review Date: 12/2/2022
Brewery Name: Nomad Brewing Co (Brookvale, NSW, Australia)
Beer Name: Rollin Haze - Hazy Pale Ale

"Get rollin' with this hazy pale ale from award-winning Nomad Brewery. Loaded with oats for the haze and left unfiltered for extra flavour and a soft creamy mouthfeel. Southern Hemisphere hops are featured in this pale with the use of Galaxy, Nelson Sauvin and a new experimental hop to give a combination of citrus, gooseberry and tropical fruit aromas."

Overall Impression: 7/10


Not as hazy as the name would have you believe. The can label is very cool and demands to be seen. It practically jumps off the shelf and into your hands. Nelson Sauvin hops give such a unique flavour and mix well with Galaxy and whatever this 'experimental' hop they used as well. The body is light in colour and mouthfeel with medium fizz. A nice and welcome change from the typical tropical fruit pale ales with some unique hop flavours combining for a fairly short, yet refreshing finish. ABV is relatively low at 4.6% meaning you can put a few of these bad boys away without feeling too woozy.
