COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Squeeze those hops for all they’re worth and prepare to pucker up: Tröegs’ newest single batch brew, Nugget Nectar Ale, will take hopheads to nirvana with a heady collection of Nugget, Warrior and Tomahawk hops. Starting with the same base ingredients of our flagship HopBack Amber Ale, Nugget Nectar intensifies the malt and hop flavors to create an explosive hop experience.

Troegs should make this a year round choice, seasonal doesn’t cut it. It’s too good

rumproasts (2879) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 31, 2014
bottle. Amber with one finger head. It’s a hopped up amber with nugget and other piney hops. Pretty solid for an amber, but for a 100/100 rated beer, I’m a bit confused where all the love is coming from. very solid, just not exceptional to me.

Alengrin (1750) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
East coast IPA (instead of the usual west coast) with thick, sticky, yellowish white head and deep amber colour with coppery hue. Very strong hops aroma but in a mild, floral and herbal way, grapefruit, bitter honey, meat broth, peach, rosewater, freshly grated ginger, pepper. Smooth, resinous, fresh citrussy fruitiness, peach, honeyish, bit caramelly in the background, supple, hints of thyme and sage, very long sticky, green, oily, herbal hop bitterness in the finish, dry-hopped. Delicious throughout, if you’re into this style like me.

jmagnus87 (2427) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly hazy dark orange with a half finger if off white head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits with a decent caramel backbone. Taste is heavily bitter. Follows aroma with the addition of grapefruit. Full bodied with a surprisingly creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Lives up to the hype.

CraftBeerNick (899) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Keg at Munich Taphouse, 23rd July 14. An amazing looking beer, beautiful soft head and dark amber colour, very inviting. The aroma is pine and undertones of sweet malt. Flavour is spot on smooth and a great malt backbone complements the hops. Really great

RRistow12 (255) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy amber with white head. Aroma is more malty than expected. Biscuity, sweet and some pine notes. Taste is more bitter than the nose. Moderate to heavily bitter. Caramel, biscuits make a nice backbone to the pine, resin hoppy bitterness. Crisp mouthfeel. Medium bodied. Pretty solid IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oxidized hop aroma. Clear Amber with excellent foam. Dank hop taste. Perfect palate. Dry finish. Underwhelming. I was expecting more.

Roser (32) - Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Appearance- lightly carbonated. Fairly clear. Amber, copper hue. Big foamy bone white head with very good lacing. Smell- caramel, malt, bread. Mildly piney. Biscuity. Taste- superb! Well balanced hops. Mild to moderately spicy. Mildly resinous. Mouthfeel- medium. Moderately bitter. Dry. Smooth. Overall- excellent!!! Highly recommend. An epic shame it’s not a year rounder. Load up on it when the opportunity presents. It’s an Imperial Amber to look at, for sure, but drinks like an imperial IPA, and a superior one. Cheers!

jfb (3820) - Freising, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2014
(draught) pours a slightly hazy amber colour with a frothy light beige head. aroma of oranges and cornflakes, slightly resinous, with a hint of caramel, nettles, lots of mango, strawberries and passion fruit. flavour is more cornflakes, strawberries and caramel, with a hint of alcohol in the medium-bitter herbal-hoppy finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.
