Where: City Steam Brewery Cafe, 942 Main St., Hartford
Ingredients: Microbrewed beer Cost: $4.50
Here's a titillating little beer, for those who are feeling frisky. The City Steam Brewery Cafe offers a homemade ale dubbed the Naughty Nurse - no catheter necessary.
According to the bartender, the brew master used to date a registered nurse, and she was fortunate enough to have this heady, amber ale named after her ... profession.
This beverage is a smooth one, and it almost tastes like a Newcastle. But it's brewed with a combination of pale and crystal malts and English hops, leaving a pint that's a slightly fruity, slightly bittersweet refresher.
That could be why it is the bar's best-seller. Or it could be the tantalizing name.
Either way, watch out for that first-sip foam mustache.
