I tasted the 2014 Nugget Nectar at the Troegs Brewery in Hershey, PA fresh from the tap on Jan 10th, 2014 and I must say it wasn't the same Nugget Nectar from the past. Still a good amber ale. The color was a gorgeous copper penny color with perfect clarity. The smell was roasted malts with mild citrus. The taste is bitter orange peel, piny & herbal with with a lingering marmalade finish. I found the 2014 version of the Nugget Nectar to be lacking in the caramel, nutty finish it was know for and I had grown to love but nonetheless it's still a top flight beer from a top flight brewery!
Last year I rated the Nugget at 95 and the Nugget Firkin at 97. This year I would rate this Nugget at around a 90. Still a good beer bust missing something! Still love it!
