Rogue Hazelnut Brown NectarMy prejudice against German beers is also valid for those from Austria, even though that is where my mom’s side of the family is from. So my uncle had a fridge full of Gosser for Thanksgiving, which is the popular generic pale lager of the homeland. There was a little hops, but it was pretty much as bland of a beer as you would expect from a pale lager. Thumbs down.

Much later that night, I was still full from the Thanksgiving feast but felt like opening up my bomber of Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar. The name was pretty self explanatory: the hazelnut flavouring is added and the nectar part was apt – this beer is really sweet. Perhaps is was because of my full stomach that the sweetness was sickening (or maybe it was because For Your Consideration is a truly bad movie), but I couldn’t finish out the bomber. The overall effect of the hazelnut was a really syrupy taste and not so much the nuttiness. The last bit got poured down the drain, which is a rare occurence.
