Tonight we’re watching the movie The Invention of Lying. It’s a comedy about a world where no one lies. Pretty freakin hilarious. In other news, I’m working hard at planning the next Boston Craft Beer Tweetup. I’m waiting to hear back from the fellas at American Craft before the deal is completely sealed. Mark your calendars for the afternoon of Saturday June 26th.
Tonight I’m cozying up to a Troegs Nugget Nectar. I got the beer from my mom for my birthday a few months ago. Which TOTALLY reminds me about the pictures I took with the brews she gave me. I meant to post them as I reviewed each beer, but I forgot. So, here they all are in their glory.
This Nuggest Nectar is an interesting beast. When I first smelled it, I figured I was dealing with another hoppy grapefruit beer. My first impression couldn’t have been more incorrect.
It starts out malty sweet. It reminds me a little of honey actually. The grapefruit does start coming through, but not in an abrasive bitter way. It’s actually a really good balance. It finishes on the bitter side, but only slightly. Overall the grapefruit flavor is the most authentic I’ve tasted.
Even at 7.5% ABV, it’s an easy drink.
Have you had the Nugget Nectar? What else did you pick up in the flavor?
