My first Nugget Nectar of the year (thank the lawd it's back!) pours a honey amber into a tulip with a 2-finger bright white head that recedes quickly to a layer in the glass. Moderate lace.
Delicious, enticing hops bombard the nose, with some sweet, caramel malts balancing it out. Just an amazing smelling beer.
Some sweet, caramel and bready malts hit the palette first, but are swiftly replaced by citrus (juicy pineapple, mango, a little lemon zest) and earthy, grassy hops that dance on the tongue. Finishes with a slight pine bitterness but also a little more sweet malt. The hops linger after each sip.
Great mouthfeel that is both crisp and creamy, with moderate carbonation. Slightly dry finish.
By far my favorite amber ale out there, and this beer could compete with some of the big boy IPA's out there too. Juicy citrus and earthy hops with a great caramel malt backbone. If you haven't tried this, what are you waiting for? Go get it. NOW!
