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!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

the first thing you notice is the dark red color. This was tasted in a tulip glass and head retension was decent.

the smell was sweet and sugary, some hints of floral in the background. Upon first taste the first thing that you will notice is the Super Lite mouth feel. The next thing you're going to notice is sweetness, a touch of alcohol and some floral notes in the finish.

The light mouthfeel and sweet taste makes you want to have another and finish the glass. This is certainly a session ale, and one has to wonder whether the sweetness is not balanced out with enough bitterness. The bitterness is there its on the palate somewhat similar to a good English ale, but the wet soapy sweet mouth feel craves some balance .

Perhaps balance can be found by paring this with spicy Chinese food or perhaps with dessert. Adding something citrus may be another good idea. I would certainly try this again as it was well above average.
