Tröegs Brewing – Tröegs Nugget Nectar – Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.7.5% abv. Purchased at Dawson’s Liquors in Severna Park, MD.
Appearance: More rust, less straw than indicated above. Thick, buttercream colored head. Heavy lacing.
Smell: Canned fruit, specifically cling peaches and mandarin oranges. Pine is very faint.
Taste: Nice and bitter. Plenty of hops all the way through, but they really pack a wallop on the finish.
Mouthfeel: At first, the sip is rich if not creamy, then thins out and finishes clean.
Drinkability: By itself, this is a monster. Paired with grilled meats, it’s fantastic and goes down far too easy for a 7.5% beer.
