Troegs Nugget Nectar

April 12, 2010

KA-BOOM! That is a Hops Hand Grenade on the the label, and there is certainly an explosion of flowery, resiny hops as soon as you pop the cap on the bottle of Troegs (there should be an umlaut over the ‘o’) Nugget Nectar.  The hop explosion is perfectly balanced by some peachy and pear sweetness from the toasted malts.  It had a beautiful fluffy head on top of a crystal clear pour.  Very smooth drinking, despite the 7.5 % ABV.  I paired this with some of JC’s finest pizza, topped with black olives and anchovies, and it was an outstanding combination.  The Nugget Nectar gets an 8/10.  This is apparently a rare one, and is only available for a limited time, so grab a bottle if you see it.
