3.19/5  rDev -16.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

poured from a 12 oz bottle into an IPA glass

A - slightly hazy copperish/orangish color. Not much head (less than a finger)

S - very sweet smelling. Notes of honey and apricot (something fruity)

T - lose a little bit of the honey in the tast but still very fruity (again I'm thinking apricot?)

M - not your typical IPA mouthfeel. Light with a slightly bubbly feel.

O - enjoyable but not my thing. I like my IPA to have more bit/bitterness. This comes in at 60 so a little low for my typical liking. In closing, I would not turn one down if offered but I don't think it will be on my "soon to purchase list"

3.09/5  rDev -19.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a pint glass.

Was expecting a sweeter beer by the nectar name and having had others with similar descriptions taste differently.

Picked up in a build your own 6 pack and would have to say I probably wouldn't buy again. Quite bitter and lacking any sort of fruit/floral hop taste. Has a bit of a honey taste but not one of my favorite. It's worth a try as I am a bit picky but would not recommend to buy more than a single. May end up as a let down. It was for me.
