Poured, my times, from a growler into a pint glass

A: A fantastic bright orange, copper color that pours to a big, off-white head, dissipating quickly and leaving great lacing.

S: A big hop nose for an Amber Ale (wink wink). Lots of big juicy hops, citrusy and tropical (oranges, tangerines, lemon, mango, papayas). There is a nice, soft bready malt there as well.

T: Gimme more! An excellent mix of sweet, bready malt and fresh juicy hops; a very balanced beer. There is a big hop hit of juicy fruit but also tight bitterness again, balanced nicely.

M: Medium body, smooth and round. Normal/moderate carbonation.

O: I am very impressed with the balance of Nugget Nectar. Large hops in the nose and taste, but always balanced by sweet, bready malt. It is a very drinkable beer, so happy I had a full growler!
