Nugget Nectar pours a beautiful amber color, extremely clear with a couple of bubbles rising to the top of the glass, a gorgeous bone colored head sits atop the beer, about 2 fingers worth that has moderate retention, but leaves behind some fantastic soapy lacing on the glass. The nose is great with a big hop profile, lots of resinous pine with some faint citrus but the pine and sappy aromas really dominate the aroma. Balancing the hops is a nice amount of caramel malt and some mild breadiness, but the caramel really shines here. The flavors are a bit heavier on the malts, which is not uncommon at all for an amber or red ale, and the caramel malt definitely leaps out right away and is very smooth and rich. Hops aren’t far away and provide some nice bitter sappy flavors and some pleasant juicy flavors, not unlike an nectarine or peach that play with some lighter citrus notes at the finish. The body is big and full, not very carbonated, feels similar to having a beer on cask and goes with the flavors very well.
Verdict: Delicious. While it’s not quite the hop bomb a lot of people make it out to be, the fanfare surrounding this beer in not unwarranted. I’m definitely glad to have a couple of these to enjoy.

4.23/5 rDev -3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: light pale/orange. Not quite an amber at all. Very nice white head that leaves decent lacing.
Smell: sweet caramel malt, some raisins, nice light piney/earthy hoppiness
Taste: caramel malt with light pine/earthiness/spice. Taste so far is the best part of the beer (as it should be?). I expect a boring light amber ale and I get a unique flavor that is different from other "hoppy ambers" or IPAs. I like it. With each sip I like it more. The resiny/oily character and herbal quality come out with each sip
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Slightly sticky/oily.
