BEER INFO

Brewed by:
City Steam Brewery Café
Connecticut, United States
citysteam.biz

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!

I heard good things about the beer, but was disappointed with the lack-luster taste.

Had this beer at the actual brewery cafe, served in a pint. Being in CT, I hear about this beer all the time from the people who drink BMC. Most craft guys don't give this any attention. So let's dig in!

Nice appearance and amber color, head doesn't last long at all. Subtle aroma of malts and sweetness. Flavor is light and sweet with a touch of bitterness in the back. A little too sticky for me on the feel and the end result is a beer that isn't bad but isn't good.

I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. I honestly wasn't expecting much. It is very classically "beery" in the aroma and flavor department, the kind of beer you could give to a macro fan without explaining what it is. But more importantly it doesn't actually taste like the swill that most macro folks drink. Malt base is on the low side but it still has some body, pleasing toasty bread like aroma, and the hop flavors and residual bitterness are on point for the style. This is the kind of beer that people wasting their lives on BMC should gravitate towards.

Really harsh the first few sips. Like drinking dollar store soda. But after a few it improved into something halfway decent.

The beer is struggling to define itself. Could not taste any of the qualities listed in the description.

More of a disappointing amber than an English Bitter. A bit too sweet with a mild hop presence. I really wanted to like it as I like English Bitters and it is local to me. But I don't.
