Tangerine and pink grapefruit.

Nugget Nectar is the color of tangerines and has the smell of pink grapefruit. It has a thick head and leaves tons of lace. The color is weird, yet striking, and the ale is otherwise beautiful. It should be poured into a smooth clear glass and carefully watched throughout the drink. Really. This ale has great visual complexity.

The aroma is as good as it gets. Grapefruit explodes during the pour and fills the nose with every sip. The flavor doesn't quite hold up to the smell; it's a bit more bland. The feel, however, is aggressive and as explosive as the aroma.

A great ale is a multi-sensory experience, and with the look, aroma, and feel, Nugget Nectar is a pleasure to drink.

Thanks to my friend JohnParadee for this bottle!
Pours a nice rich amber color with a small amount of frothy head.
Aromas are very hoppy with such a nice malt backbone.
Taste is really nice as well. Delicious hoppy tropical fruit in unison with a nice malt backbone.
Mouthfeel was really nice, a nice bit of substance here.
All in all, I enjoyed the beer very much. Reminded me of Gandhi-Bot.
