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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Mild dark malts and flowery hops in the nose. Clear copper coloured with initially large, white, fully-diminishing head. Mild citrusy hops and some caramel malt sweetness. Some lactic character. Very watery body. On tap at the brewpub with DYCSoccer17, MartinT and Rastacouere.

That lactic character again mesmerizes the light hoppiness into hiding...Uninteresting low carbonation for the style makes the absence of hops even more noticeable...Caramel filaments try to give it some oomph but fail miserably...Maybe I visited on a very bad day?...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear dark amber pour with minimal head. Aroma of pipe tobacco, very malty...little hop noticable. Sweet taste, vanilla noticable to start, some hop to finish. Drinkable, yet something really missing here -

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Muted light citrus, floral and sweet toffee aroma. Honey gold. Well-brewed hops, layed on in moderate amount. Fairly dry. Decent medium mouth and a finish which doesn't linger. A good complement for their food, which is good. Some starchiness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2004 Draught: Lighter amber color. It had a little head, but not too much, with a small amount of lacing. Aroma is a bit thin. I get some citrus hops and a little malt, plus some floral notes. There is a decent enough maltiness to the beer, but pretty this on any bitterness to the taste. Good, but a bit on the thin side for a Pale Ale. A typical "standard" house beer for a micro: good, but definitely brewed for the Macro masses.

Clear golden with white head. Aroma is floral and grapefruit hoppy. Taste is medium hoppy, floral, not too strong. A little undercarbonated.
