Guest tap at Big Bear Lake Brewing Co. Clear amber pour with ok foam. Nose is sweeter with red cherry and wheat bread. Taste is a bit spicy, mild caramel, good breadiness, cherries. Good bitterness, drinkable. Brentv (672) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 5, 2016
From bottle. Pours red with a foamy white head. Nutty caramel aroma and taste. Slightly sweet. Medium mouthfeel. ffbot (420) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 18, 2016
Out of the bottle has a nice pleasant sweet smell, some caramel and light spice. Taste is super balanced, not too sweet and lingers with a nice dryness to it. Tastes like an OG amber HonusWagner (2168) - Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2016
A totally whatever lightly spicy American amber with faint hoppiness and lightly cerealy maltiness. klaing (282) - Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Good run of very decent beers going. This one too. Red Amber, clear moderate carbonation. Toasted malts moving to a lemony hop profile, but smooth. Hits the spot between a brown and a pale nicely.

Rated on 01-05-2016 (Bottle) The appearance is a huge foamy beige head that mostly diminished, light hazy copper body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, citrus hops, fruity, light spice, earthy, and a tad soapy. The flavor is moderately bitter, sweet, citrus hops, fruity light spice, earthy, and a light malt and hop finish. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. Overall a quaffable beer, but I have drank and rated better of this style. ecook90 (32) - Nevada, USA - JAN 6, 2016
I'm not sure if I got an older batch or just not for me but I found it overtly bitter overwhelming any sweetness to be found.

Pours hazy copper color with off white head. Aromas of toasted malt and pine. Similar flavors. Medium body with average carbonation. tnkw01 (1753) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle. Deep amber in color with a large off white head. Love the floral aroma and the taste is well balanced with a floral taste. This was pretty good. sloshgator (741) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Humboldt Red Nectar is a robust red ale and a nice brew. Nice copper red pour with a mild head that dissipates a little too fast. Not much aroma detected. Taste has a bold maltiness and a nice floral hop profile. Red Nectar is a decent red ale.
