BEER INFO

Brewed by:
City Steam Brewery Café
Connecticut, United States

Style: English Bitter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Naughty Nurse has become quite the popular lady in the Nutmeg State. With her classy and sensual elegance, combined with just the right amount of...ahem...bite, she has made many a friend both inside and outside of our brewpub. Don't let that "come hither" look fool you, though - she is all business when it comes to performance. In fact, she is our best seller! If the Nurse needs a match, it can be a nice beefy burger, or almost anything else on a pub style menu. And with her moderate alcohol content, she can stand alone and make your next Session last a long, long time! This fine ale is brewed for a spicy, slightly bittersweet finish using traditional English malt, hops, yeast and manners. Available short or tall, of course!

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark clear Amber color with a small white head. The aroma is all malt. The taste is malt with a creamy texture.

Probably the most popular choice at CS and one of my personal favorite local beers. Nothing special but a good choice for someone who enjoys full flavored ales.

At first this was not my thing, but it grew on me over time as many brews do. This was dull and boring to me at a time in which i was drinking mostly high ABV micro brew ipa's and double ipa's. But after i gave that a break i revisited this and found this to have a very nice taste the second go around. If you like bitterness that is. Not as bitter as some but its a good blend of mellow and bitter.

The Naughty Nurse

Appearance: Amber with a bit of haze. Poured with a nice head which fades into a consistent ring atop the beer. Nothing special but not displeasing. (3.5)

Smell: Smells a bit hoppy with some spicy and fruity notes. (3.5)

Taste: The sip begins with a malty, bitter introduction followed by a hoppy middle and chased with a sweet and mild caramel release. Finishes dry. I really do like the toasted hops which really show through in the middle of a taste. The bitterness and sweetness are well balanced. A pleasure to drink. (4.0)

Mouthfeel: The beer starts by warming the front of your palate and then transitions into a cool, dry feeling at the end. There is a slight crispness with mild carbonation. Smooth and medium-bodied. (3.75)

Overall: Overall the taste of the beer offered a little more than what the appearance gives off. The initial impression gives the sense that the beer is a safe choice. While The Naughty Nurse falls into the middle of the road, the flavor complexities bump the beer just a cut above. (3.75)
