Default Red Nectar Ale clone

So I've been tinkering with a red nectar ale clone, as it is one of my top five favorite commercial beers.

Nectar Ales

Here is a side-by-side of the clone versus the real thing.



I need to slighty tinker with the finishing hops, but I'm happy with the results so far.

I also am quite enamored by this brew (their IPA is also fantastic). Care to share the recipe?

Is this similar to Troegs Nugget Nectar? I'm trying to find a clone recipe for that and don't know where to start.

Did you use the search function? I know I have seen some threads about it. One recently had info from Troegs from an interview.

I've given up using the search function on the iPhone app, it never works. On the other hand, I've never had a problem with the search function on the website. If I need to do a search on my phone, I'll pull up HBT in safari.
