Tröegs Nugget Nectar

American craft beer is good on any evening but Thursday night “work on the site night” seems to bring out the best in my taste buds. They are rearing to go all day and look forward to the liquid goodness that will pour over them that evening. No, I don’t ever drink to get inebriated. I appreciate having beers with friends, sharing four or five beers, while only having maybe about 14 ounces of beer to myself over the course of a couple to several hours. The entire process for me is completely and utterly about the beer. Nothing else.

Each Thursday figuring out the best beer of the evening seems unfair to some of the other beers we share as, usually, there are multiple quality beers but picking the best chides the others.

Picking Nugget Nectar by Tröegs Brewing Company was the winner. This is only my second go around with this beer and Rich was kind enough to share with the group.

Nugget Nectar is the east coasts answer to or at least comes out shortly after Hopslam. In spite of the aroma, which is huge on the hops, this beer is considered an American amber ale. This beer is in the team photo for the best amber ale I have had and it is in general just a great beer. Enjoy!

Aroma: 9, Taste: 8, Look: 9, Drinkability: 9, Overall: 8.8

Useless Fact: Strawberries have more vitamin C in them than oranges.
