Beer of the Week 25: Red Nectar

Nectar Ales' Red Nectar

From their website:

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.

From my notes:

Beautiful dark amber-rose color. Citrus and malts with a hint of hops. very little head that quickly dissipates, no lacing,  medium bodied. Tastes of citrus and honeysuckle with some piney notes.  Finishes with hops.

Red Nectar is a  nice, though strong, session beer: enjoyable, drinkable , and sure to win over your friends. I know that ‘inoffensive’ isn’t considered a compliment but when you have a group of friends over with different tastes it’s hard to please everyone. Red Nectar though? It’s hard to find a complaint against Red Nectar. Now you want to know what a session beer is don’t you? It’s killing you isn’t it? You’ve heard the phrase before you might have been drank a session beer before but you were too embarrassed to ask weren’t you? First, a session is a dedicated block of time for drinking, but not getting drunk. A session beer therefore is a low alcohol beer (4.0%-5.1% ABV) that can be drunk in fairly large quantities.

Doesn’t mix well with polite company; his two favorite topics being politics and religion. Would rather be out cycling, swimming, running, or camping. Misspent his youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
