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: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with some clarity and bubbles coming up through glass.

Smell: Toasted bready malts, a little chocolate, fruity notes, and a little caramel.

Taste: Toasted bready malts, some caramel, chocolate, a little fruity, and some bitterness towards the end.

Mouthfeel: Chewy, a little creamy, some bitterness, light to medium bodied, and light to medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty average ESB or amber ale like the label says. It is more true to the bitter style.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: The beer is clear reddish amber in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high light beige head that gradually died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a thick collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of grassy hops are present in the nose along with notes of caramel and toffee.
T: The taste has flavors of grassy hops and toffee; notes of cough syrup-like flavors become noticeable and linger through the finish. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation.
O: For being an English Bitter, this beer didn't have much in the way of bitterness. I would have liked this beer a lot better if it didn't taste like cough syrup.

3.35/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Large bubbled head that dies down to nothing. No lace. Neutral amber color and nearly clear.

More caramel and crystal malt nose than any hop. There's also a notable iron smell.

The sip is far more bitter than the smell indicates. The malt base is brief--it's not sweet but it has some elements of caramel and powdered malt. The hop provides bitterness but little complexity. The aftertaste is long. Thin bodied with an elevated level of carbonation.
