Clear amber color, above average carbonation but still feel a little thin. Aroma is pine,malt and mild citrus. Taste comes off almost identical,pine is dominant,not overpowering yet still lingers a while

Poured into a pint glass.

Apperance: Crystal clear amber brown with a tan head.

Smell: Some pine, some malt.

Taste: A hint of pine and mango up front. Finishes with a strong malt flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and good amount of carbonation.

Overall: A nice ale that is easily drinkable. Will have this again.

Poured can (enjoy by 5-17-18) into pint glass. Head quickly fades to a low white skim that then lingers. Clear amber color. Not as much hops smell as I was expecting. Tastes like a good amber/red ale. Medium amount of carbonation. I'm not getting hit with the hops taste that I was expecting. Overall a good beer, I was expecting more though based on the hype. At 6/$12.99, I don't think I will buy again. Maybe these cans aren't fresh enough.

Could be my favorite beer, especially for cold or cool weather. Wonderful taste, amazing feel. No alcohol sharpness. Great for sipping all night.

Well, that's just darn yummy. This was recommended to me, and I love this brewery so I went for it ... Nugget Nectar is indeed that ... Rich, deep brown color with a hint of gold, nice head that laces down the glass. Is there a tea leaf reading equivalent to head lacing? As I've come to expect from Tröegg's, the flavor is very complex. Crisp at the start, but grows as you drink it. The hoppiness is exquisite without being agressive, the pine and resin notes are there as promised by the advertising copy on the bottle. The mango is a bit more subtle, and really comes out in the finish. I need more of this, definitely!

Pours a mostly clear copper amber with half of a finger of foamy off white head.
Smells of piney hops and sweet malt.
Taste follows, piney hops up front, a little tropical fruit. Sweet caramel like maltiness.
Medium bodied with a little bit of prickliness from the carbonation.
Overall an excellent red ale.

Had it in a growler from State Line. What a yummy beer! Very malty, yet hoppy. A bit strong, but that's OK. We need to find out what makes an ale "red". Besides the color.
