The Nugget Nectar is a GOOD beer. The beer poured rich copper clear that had a thin white head which left a nice lace. The scent was a dark rich sweet malt with piny citrus overtones. The taste starts slightly bitter then the sweet malt begins to take over and provide a decent finish. Toward the end one will pick up the higher abv. The mouthfeel was full body with decent carbonation. Overall a good beer....sessioning might be difficult but it might be worth a try.

I had this on tap at The Gate in Brooklyn on a sweltering day in July

A - Copper, but in an orangey way.

S - It has the classic hops scent, but it is more citrus than pine.

T - Some tropical fruits but this time there is a pine profile. There is also a bitterness that lingers.

M - carbonation is light but no coating. Goes down smooth.

It was good but not great. As it warmes the sweetness dissipates.

Edit- had the 2015 edition in Feb and the only thing I'd add is it have an overwhelming grapefruit/fake grape aftertaste

This beer is very hoppy but also sweet. It smells flowery and taste very crisp. One of my favorite beers. I had it on tap at Fat Heads and I remember when they first got it in stock, there was a huge line waiting for it and it sold out very right away.
