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!

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)
