A great hop filled beer with tremendous flavor. The utilization of malt and hops, give the Nugget Nectar a great front and back mouth feel for your taste buds. Right away you can taste the Nugget, Warrior, and Tomahawk hops. This beer has a limited release, and the last time I checked it was available in 12oz, 22oz, and draft.

I go into this review knowing that my bottle is within the "expiration" date but old enough that the integrity of the hops is depleted. Nugget Nectar is known for big hop flavor, much like an IPA, so I'll review this as the Imperial Amber that is written on the label.

The color is bright, sleek and iridescent with bright orange and light amber. The head was alive in a quickly dissipating rush of carbonation.

This is where the review will suffer as the scent is slightly piney hops but it has more of a biscuity malt aroma. Some toasty aroma, some pecan, this has a nice scent minus the citrus that has been lost.

I love an amber ale and Nugget Nectar holds its own as an amber. Strong toasty malt goodness, touches of biscuit, nutty pecan and hints of pine meld well together. Where this excels is in the feel. It's like water in it ease, but full in its body. It's very deceptive and masks the ABV very well.

Overall, this review is subject to edit when a new batch arrives but if I found it sitting on a shelf four months old, I'd still buy it in a second.
