I think I've had this beer enough.. Where I can say this beer can be the best amber I've tasted thus far SO far.. It has a dark golden look to it.. The label is cool beans.. Taste has a nice hoppy taste especially for an amber.. Really am a fan of this beer..

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass

A - True to the style, the beer pours a warm amber color. There is no haze whatsoever so you can watch as the carbonation bubbles weave their way to the top of the glass to form a moderate off-white head.

S - Dank, with a distinct pine resin aroma. Some grapefruit and sugar cookie odors sneak in there, too.

T - Similar to the nose, gloriously piney and dank. Grapefruit plays a complementing second fiddle. The malt character is perfect to the style - biscuit and a hint of caramel. The finish is pleasantly bitter and well-balanced by clean malty sweetness.

M - Good but nothing special. The carbonation is robust but not overpowering. Given the ABV, the body manages to not be overtly heavy or syrupy.

O - This is a very good beer. It's hard to think of another amber ale that is superior. It is a dank beer, but does not have the herbal or onion flavors other such brews have. This beer comes with a lot of hype, which it mostly lives up to. Nice to see nugget hops get some love, though!

I'll start by saying that I'm not really an IPA guy. Perhaps this is a controversial opinion, but I think that putting too many hops in a beer can totally ruin it by taking over all other flavors. That being said, I quite enjoy Nugget Nectar. When I first had it, the bitterness really struck me as I was not expecting this many hops in an amber or red ale. The rest of that bottle was nearly undrinkable but by the end of the second (which I drank along with food for what that's worth) I was very eager to go out and buy two more six packs. My only regret is that I didn't manage to get any more before the season for it stopped. I have two left now which I am holding onto like treasures for when I eat anything nicer than typical college student nonsense. Overall not my absolute favorite beer ever, but one which hugely grew on me from one of my favorite breweries.
