*I ordered this beer at Yard House and it's listed on the menu as "Nectar Red." At first, several searches on Google led me to conclude that it should be Red Nectar. Later in the evening, I stumbled upon Yard House's Beer Checklist that cleared my doubts and I concluded that "Nectar Red" is actually called "Red Nectar."

Boasting a ruby hue and an exquisite floral aroma, Red Nectar is a robust yet elegant brew with distinctive accents of toasted malt, caramel, spice and residual sweetness.

The beer that started it all... Red Nectar was considered a strange bird when it was first released in 1987. After all, where did a robust, handcrafted all-natural amber ale fit into the massive flock of American industrial lagers? Answer: it didn’t. So it blazed its own trail, helping set the pace for the craft brew revolution.

Enjoy Red Nectar for its dazzling reddish copper hue, original flavors and caramel spice accents.
