This beer was ok, but not in my wheelhouse. It has a fair amount of hop, so I was not turned of by too much malt (which happens with some red ales). However, it is kind of boozy. I had this from a can a couple of months ago.

Poured from can into pint glass. Poured a clear orange tinted amber with a nice fluffy cream colored head. Notes of citrus, pine, and resin on the nose. Taste followed aroma, smooth with a crisp finish. Pleasantly surprising with the stated high IBU. Very easy to drink. Lives up to the hype ... though admittedly I did not know there was any hype until a friend/coworker who lived in Hershey prior said I had to try it and gave two cans to sample. I would highly recommend. To bad it is only brewed once a year.

Nice pour for a deep amber color. The aroma is hoppy, malts and pine. The taste is amazing, flavorful throughout with a good crisp finish. Definitely not too much hops. Very easy to drink. Lives up to the hype.

Purchased a case of Nectar at the brewery in Feb 2018. Very disappointed! Compared to the 2017 version, the 2018 version lacks the the aroma and taste which made this an outstanding brew. It is a very good brew but not as good as the previous batch. I will cautiously try the 2019 version and hope for the best.
