Notes/Commercial Description:
The Naughty Nurse has become quite the popular lady in the Nutmeg State. With her classy and sensual elegance, combined with just the right amount of...ahem...bite, she has made many a friend both inside and outside of our brewpub. Don't let that "come hither" look fool you, though - she is all business when it comes to performance. In fact, she is our best seller! If the Nurse needs a match, it can be a nice beefy burger, or almost anything else on a pub style menu. And with her moderate alcohol content, she can stand alone and make your next Session last a long, long time! This fine ale is brewed for a spicy, slightly bittersweet finish using traditional English malt, hops, yeast and manners. Available short or tall, of course!

12oz bottle. Pours a dark chestnut brown color with minimal head. Some lacing. Sweet aroma of malts and spices. Taste is mostly spices at first with some maltiness to it. Somewhat bready. Spices in the finish. Overall this beer is okay but I'm hoping this is just the beginning of City Steam bottling its beers. I would really like to see Acapulco Gold or the Summer Stout in 6 packs. For now this entry is "eh".

Poured a golden semi-dark amber. No noticeable nose or aroma. My first taste was light, not much of a body. No real hop or malt taste, if anything a bit of malt and a hint of caramel and a touch of sweetness.

I am not sure on where I classify this type of beer.

Again with many that I have tasted, nothing fundamentally wrong, but there is also nothing that shines as being outstanding.

Medium amber with a decent foam head and some lace.

What a unique nose on this one. Orange blossom, honeysuckle, flowers and some toasted malt. Unique perfume aroma. Wonderful.

Nice toasted malt and some moderate bitterness that does not seem like it is coming from the hops, but rather the malt. Bread crust, a juicy note too. Very different.

Medium bodied, ok carbonation.

Liked tho one more than I expected. Nose is terrific, and the flavor is solid.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a medium coppery brown color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, nuts, a good amount of hops, some honey and some citrus.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty malt character followed by some mild sweetness from flavors of citrus, caramel and a touch of spice. The hops presence is strong for the style and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid flavorful beer to session with for a long time.
