It's always nice when the shipments of Nugget Nectar reach the Haute. Although it's been a few months since the latest release, I thought I would toss up my review of this fine "Amber." Had my most recent one at a gathering a few nights ago. Poured into a standard pint glass.

Pours a coppery amber color with a thin light colored head. Very clear, with moderate amounts of lace left behind.

A nice hoppy citrusy nose is my favorite part of the Nugget Nectar. Smaller notes of pine and even some sweet caramel are also present. I really enjoy the intensity of the citrus smell, with the subtleties of the rest.

Tastes similar to the smell with the noticeable sweet malts being pushed aside by the prominent hoppiness. The caramel smell is also found in the drink, although also quite subtle. I wish there was just a bit more. Citrus and a bit of pine - and a sharp bitterness that is just a little bit detracting. Additionally, the mouthfeel is a just a bit on the thin side.

I do like Nugget Nectar, but I feel like the flavors just don't quite work together as well as they could. Fairly drinkable, and still a beer that I look forward to every year.
