American Amber/Red Ale | 7.50% ABV

Once again Troegs Nugget Nectar hits the shelf for another season. If you have yet to try this beer you need to run to the nearest beer shop that carries this beauty.

Pours a very amber/red color with a fluffy tan head with loads of lacing and retention. The nose is loaded with hops, hops and more hops. Although, it is well balanced with hints of sweet caramel malt as well. This balancing act flows right to the palate leaving your taste buds cheering for more. The balance on this beer in my opinion is the beauty to Nugget Nectar, not to mention the abundant fresh hop aroma. May be a tad high in alcohol to be considered a session beer, but for me, it’s perfect for sessioning.

This beer is a pairing monster, goes so well with so much. The malts link so well with many types of grilled meats while the hops slice the fats and heavy umami flavors. Any hop head must hoard loads of Nugget Nectar in their cellar.

Pairing suggestions:

Sweet BBQ Ribs, Steak, Burgers, Roasted Chicken, Pizza….

beer + food = Barleydine
