Welcome to the Nosto Beer Page

What do Ecommerce and beer have in common?
Nothing.


Except that we’re a fan of both.


And with nothing more than that tenuous link to spur us on, we decided to team up with the guys from Stadin Panimo to create our own Nosto lager.

The process was simple - test everything they had to offer and then use the feedback of those Nostonians left standing to create our own boozy blend!

Recipe

The Nosto 1st Limited Edition Lager is a hoppy, fresh lager. Like Nosto it has Finnish roots with an international twists. We combined Finnish and German malts with US hops.

 

Malts

Pilsner malt, the basis of pale lager, is quite pale and strongly flavored. Invented in the 1840s, Pilsner malt is the lightest-colored generally available malt, and also carries a strong, sweet malt flavor

Pale Ale malt is made from 2-row spring barley. High degree of modification promotes easy processability. Flavour contributes specially to malty, sweet and nutty notes. Ideal malt for ales and special lagers.

Vienna malt is a kiln-dried barley malt darker than pale ale malt, but not as dark as Munich Malt. It imparts a golden to orange color and a distinctive toast or biscuit malt aroma to the beer.

Munich Malt has a malty sweet flavor characteristic and adds a reddish amber color to the beer. 

Cara Pale malt is sweet and caramel like having also toffee and fruity notes. The enzymatic activity of Caramel Pale is negligible.

 

Hops 

Cascade is the most popular variety in craft brewing and is known for having a unique floral, spicy and citrus character with balanced bittering potential. Aroma includes medium intense floral, citrus and grapefruit tones

Citra The Citra hop is a high alpha acid hop with a strong, yet smooth floral and citrus aroma and flavor. Specific aroma descriptors include grapefruit, melon, lime, gooseberry, passion fruit and lychee.
