Y Market Lupulin Nectar Aroma and Taste
Y Market Lupulin Nectar poured out a very hazy dark golden yellow colour with a small amount of white head on top that faded to a few bubbles around the outside of the glass. However, the aroma was much more vibrant, with peaches, plums, lemon, grapefruit, as well as mango and pineapple also coming through. Y Market Lupulin Nectar had so much going on that I didn’t need to smell anything else, but there was a faint hint of malt sweetness to the body too once it had warmed up somewhat.
I was expecting a big hit of bitterness from Y Market Lupulin Nectar; however, it was much softer, and thus smoother, when I drank it. The hops brought a similar range of flavours to the body as was in the nose – lots of peaches, plums, citrus, and mango, and they were all very nicely balanced with one another. Those same tropical and citrus flavours carried on and lingered right into the aftertaste with just a hint of sweetness coming from the malts too.
Y Market Lupulin Nectar The Bottom Line
All in all, Y Market Lupulin Nectar is a really good, flavourful beer. Get it fresh though.
