Boasting a ruby hue and an exquisite floral aroma, Red Nectar is a robust yet elegant brew with distinctive accents of toasted malt, caramel, spice and residual sweetness. The beer that started it all… Red Nectar was considered a strange bird when it was first released in 1987. After all, where did a robust, handcrafted all-natural amber ale fit into the massive flock of American industrial lagers? Answer: it didn’t. So it blazed its own trail, helping set the pace for the craft brew revolution. Enjoy Red Nectar for its dazzling reddish copper hue, original flavors and caramel spice accents. (Editor’s Note: originally brewed by Humboldt Brewing Company as "Humboldt Red Nectar Ale" until their acquisition by Firestone Walker.)

Ungstrup (34327) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2004
A red or amber beer with a fine beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of straws, caramel, and hints of roasted bread. The flavor is of roasted malt and good hops - both aroma and bitter - with fruit and caramel notes in the middle. It ends on an OK bitterness. The body is a little thin.
