Review: Tröegs Nugget Nectar

Tröegs Nugget Nectar from Tröegs Brewing Company
Rating: A-

Appearance: Coppery orange in color, good sized white head and retention, some lacing.

Smell: Juicy, citrusy hops, with a good dose of caramel. Nice.

Taste: Wouldn't have guessed it was 7.5% alcohol. Maltier than I expected, but I guess that's what makes it an amber rather than an APA. Flavor profile is much the same as the nose: juicy, citrusy hops and caramel malts.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium-body, good carbonation.

Drinkability: Good, but body a little heavy for the style perhaps. I didn't realize this was a seasonal - perhaps a bit overrated on the whole.

Serving type: bottle
