Just picked up a case of Nugget Nectar the other day. For mid 40's, this beer is a steal.

A- Poured this lovely dark honey colored nectar into a tulip glass. It has a red tint to it. It produces 2 fingers of head which fades down to about a half an inch that slowly fades as it holds onto the inner walls of the glass as I drink it.

S- Lots of fresh hops. More hops. Pine, and floral notes. It just smells fresh and lively.

T- Great bitter hop flavors right from the initial sip. Some light pine and citrus notes creep in and out. The dryness to this brew makes you want to take another sip as soon as your done with the first. There is a faint sweetness mid palate that is ever so elusive. It comes and goes at random times. The finish is hoppy, bitter, with hints of pine and grapefruit making appearances as well.

M- The mouthfeel of NN is somewhat oily and slick, thin, but not too thin, dry, and the carbonation is just enough to keep things exciting.

D- Yeah, one sip of this and you want to take another, and another, and another. NN can gIet you in trouble though at
7.5% alcohol. A VERY drinkable beer.

This is a great beer from my home state. Troegs is a brewery that doesn't make a bad beer, and for the price, quite a bargain considering the quality of their brews. Pick up some nugget nectar along with any of their offerings. They are all outstanding.
