This is a pale, lighter bodied ale that is smooth, clean and refreshing. Additions of honey give this a sweeter character as it is fermented clean. It is brewed with 3 different malts and copious amounts of honey added at the end of the batch. Enjoy this year round. Nectar is a sugar-rich liquid produced in plants called nectaries, either within the flowers with which it attracts pollinating animals, or by extrafloral nectaries, which provide a nutrient source. Common nectar-consuming pollinators include bees and butterflies, but also moths, hummingbirds, and bats. Minneapolis is thriving with native deciduous plants that are ripe with nectar. Local honey sources are used as ingredients into this craft beer.
