Steph’s New Brew Review: Nugget Nectar 2016

Tröegs Brewing Company Nugget Nectar, a 7.5% ABV Imperial Amber Ale

Appearance Orange; off-white head; beautiful lacing.
Aroma Citrus and pine; subtle malt sweetness.
Taste Piney and tropical fruit hop notes balanced by honey-like sweetness; clean finish.
Mouthfeel Medium-bodied; moderate carbonation.
Overall Always one of my favorites.
