Sunset in color, brewed with a combination of pale and crystal malts, London yeast, and a variety of traditional English hops for a spicy, slightly bittersweet finish and a wonderful fruity and flowery aroma. 12.5 degrees P.

Tap. Aroma of lots of toasted malt, a touch caramelly. Flavor more toasted, somewhat fruity malt with some boring bittering hops. Ok.

Growler RI - Lacey head. Malty flavor but light on the palate. Reminded me of a smoother Sma Lager - not sure if thats fair or not...

Dark orange, creamy white head. EPA nose of black iced tea that warms to citric notes and hints of toffee brittle. Flavor cuts to the chase with a heavier dried fruit tone thats balanced on touches of caramel. Nicely bittered from start to finish. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, soft bittersweet finish. Sessionable and well done. This and thier IPA rule the roost here...

Pours brown with a white head. Smells tealike with some nice hoppy notes. Tastes lightly hoppy with more tea qualities and a peppery finish.

Tap at the brewpub. The waitress said that this was their best brew. That’s not a good sign. It’s also not a good sign (and this may only be my opinion) when a brewpub sells BMC. Bitter! And not in a good way. There was something funky (in both the aroma and mouthfeel) about this that just wasn’t very good. Very dry and bitter to finish. Not very enjoyable.

Draught at brewery with Clarkvv 8/11/05: Mostly clear medium dark amber with a small eggshell colored head that doesn’t last too long. The aroma is grains, earthy/floral hops, toffee, and buttery yeast. Taste is caramel, toffee, earthy/grassy hops, a hint of citrus hops, grains, and a tiny hint of diacetyl. Light-medium bodied, moderate carbonation. I’m pretty certain this was listed as an "Amber ale" at the bar.

I believe they now consider this an "Amber" as the sign on the wall said "Naughty Nurse Amber Ale" as opposed to "Naughty Nurse Pale Ale" like it used to be...3 oz sampler. Slightly sweet, sour funky nose...weird aroma. Transparent copper color with off-white head. Caramelly start, turning roasty and dominated by malts. Hops are vitrually undetectable. Like I said, this is reminiscent of an Amber.

Cottrell (72) - Connecticut, USA - APR 30, 2005
Pours a dark amber, with a finger of foam. Aroma is sweet grain, and mild and lightly citric hops. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, and uninteresting. Flavor starts with grainy sweetness and light caramel, then turns mildly bitter, with a pleasing and subtle hop finish. Definitely drinkable, but really nothing to get too excited about. A pretty standard flagship offering.
