Tröegs Nugget Nectar

After putting our names on the waiting list, we went on a little trip to the Wine Source. Chris and I each got a bottle of Nugget Nectar, but when we returned to the restaurant, we saw it was also on draft. I figured I'd rather order something else, but Chris went ahead and ordered a pint for himself.

I wrote: "Preview of Nugget Nectar: Good. Can't wait for the full taste. [Exit 4]" 8:19 PM
I wrote: "Chris's Nugget Nectar Ale, perhaps affected by my tripel (Exit 4), has too piney a taste." 9:24 PM

I don't know why I didn't make any notes of this beer. What I do know is I split the bottle with my dad. I recall he really liked it. If I remember correctly, then it was sweet (in a beer sort of way) and deliciously hoppy. While I could be wrong, apparently the beer has good reviews on both and

Thus, while I've had a taste and half a bottle of Nugget Nectar, I'm going to have to get my hands on another bottle.
