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!

I had high hopes. It had a frothy head, it was served well chilled. I could smell hops on the nose. Then I drank it.. missed the hops. They were just really weak. Is this ~supposed~ to be a pale ale? Sure doesn't seem it. The 2nd beer I tried at City Steam. I'm a bit dissapointed.

On-tap at Delaney's.

A: Clear chestnut body under a thin, fizzy white head. No retention or lace to speak of. Pretty weak.

S: Husky malt, some caramel, and a bit of cheese. Not good.

T: Follows the nose. Boring, silo-esque malt and not much else. Husky, rough, and stultifying.

M: Frothy, soft medium body. Pretty nice.

O: Even if you want a boring beer, you can do way better than this one. Not recommended.

Cheers!

Draught: Lighter amber color. It had a little head, but not too much, with a small amount of lacing. Aroma is a bit thin. I get some citrus hops and a little malt, plus some floral notes. There is a decent enough maltiness to the beer, but pretty this on any bitterness to the taste. Good, but a bit on the thin side for a Pale Ale. A typical "standard" house beer for a micro: good, but definitely brewed for the Macro masses.

First had: on tap at City Steam Brewery, Hartford, CT

Not too bad, but not that great either. Pretty mild and smooth, but not too flavorful/memorable. Poured a light amber with a light head that settled quickly. Light, mildly hoppy aroma and taste. Easy drinking, light mouthfeel. Not something I'd reorder, but nice for those who don't live dangerously.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a gorgeous dark amber with small head and decent retention of lacing. Aroma is malty, with some hops and yeast. Mouthfeel is light. Taste is of hops, yeast and is just overall watered down tasting. It is just ok.
