This beer poured a beautiful burnt orange with perfect clarity and dancing champagne bubbles rising up from the bottom of the glass. It yielded an ample head of billowy foam that receded lazily to a sturdy cap and some sticky, clinging lace. Nose is fresh, floral and orange with a malt character that smells more like a lager. The malt is full and round on the nose, toasty then giving way to a toffee sweetness. Taste is piney, resin, bitter and delightful with breaddy malt. The malty sweetness keeps increasing on the palate and the strong malt base is inexhaustible next to the thundering hops. Finishes dry, slick, crisp and both the hops bitter and the malt sweetness dance on the tongue long after the swallow. This beer takes you to the edge of it’s mammoth malt profile and then lets all the endless hops leap to their happy go lucky limit. Nugget Nectar is a jubilee of taste sensation. Wonderful!
