Nectar of the Gods

Day #427 Nugget Nectar / Troegs Brewing Company, Hershey, PA
Previously from this brewery: Marci's thoughts on Sunshine Pils, and my look at Scratch 57

So, the blizzard that dominated news coverage for the past two days turned into.... about two inches of snow.  Not exactly the SNOPOCALYPSE! that was being predicted.  Instead of shoveling snow for hours, I was able to be productive today.  I took some electronics out to be recycled, swung by Target, took the dogs to get their nails trimmed, and now I'm now relaxing drinking a Nugget Nectar, an amber ale from Troegs.  Saturdays are the greatest.

In the glass, this beer has a bright, clear copper color with a lingering thin white head.  The aroma is a huge blast of grapefruit and pine.  When you take a sip, there are hops, hops, an more hops, with ample citrus and bitterness.  There's more to this beer than just hops, however, as there's a nice malt backbone behind the hops to create balance.  This beer is a manageable 7.5% ABV, but watch yourself, as this is so delicious, you'll likely end up having more than one.  Many more than one, in fact.

This beer is a seasonal Troegs offering, which is unfortunate, as something this good should be available throughout the whole year.

Thing to Think About Today:
I'm still not sure what my thoughts are about this song and this artist, but it's been playing in my head a fair bit lately.  So, let it play in yours: Thrift Shop, by Macklemore.  Hopefully your Saturdays are fantastic so far, and your Sundays are even better.

"Damn, that's a cold ass honky"
