Nugget Nectar is good, really good. This sample was on tap at the brewery. Here's what I have to say about my favorite beer:

Think about being on a desert island in the extreme heat, dying of thirst.

But then imagine a genie appears and offers you, instead of three wishes, a choice of three items: A glass to catch rain in, a drink of nugget nectar, or some water that could save your life.
What do you do?
You brain that son of a bitch genie with a rock and take all three items. You use the water to wash the glass to make sure it is completely clean. Then you pour the water out in your excitement because drinking it would take too long and only delay your drinking of the Nugget Nectar. You pour the Nugget Nectar into the glass, so as to appropriately release the aroma. It is not the best smelling beer on earth, it is the best smelling THING on earth. You weep as you drink the beer, out of sadness that you can't have anymore and due to its perfection. It is like a religious experience, you are reborn in the face of Nugget Nectar.

When you're finished you break the glass (after licking it clean), because you can't bear to drink anything else out of that glass ever again, because it would only remind you of the sad memory that the glass no longer held the most bestest beer ever.
