A nice little session Red Ale. At 4.9% you could drink a few of these. Pours a clear amber color into my pint glass. Decent size white head and good lacing. Head retention is above average. Smell is mild. Some caramel and bready malts.

Nice mild taste, a little grassy hops balances the malty flavor. Caramel and bready malts make up most of the taste.

Mouthfeel is a bit on the light side but still acceptable. Nicely balanced, crisp and refreshing.

Worthwhile as a session beer. Nothing outstanding about it.

Pours a very nice deep copper with a head that leaves a generous amount of lace for the style,slight aromas of caramel and roasted malt but was a little weak.Taste was not weak however full caramel and toffee flavors with a hint of pizza dough a touch dryeness in the finish from a pretty generous amount of hop for the style.A real nice amber ale very quaffable and tasty at the same time.

Clear and somewhat dull amber in appearance. Thin, sheeting off-white head. Aromas are soft, with caramel sweetness and a slight roasty-toasty character. Flavor is more of the same. Firm malt backbone supported by notes of Heath bar and bittering hops. Slightly bitter at the end, with a short-lived aftertaste. Drinkable, and another beer from Natty's that I'd enjoy on my subsequent visits.

12 oz bottle served in a Unibroue snifter.

Pours a crystal clear brown-amber with a rather small beige head. The head mostly disappears quickly. [3.75]

M: near medium body and carbonation. Very smooth.

AROMA: Plenty of medium malt, with toasted grain and caramel.

The aroma is basically duplicated by the flavor [3.75]. Nothing fancy here but also nothing amiss, just a straightforward amber with plenty of caramel malt flavor. Not a beer geek beer, but an excellent choice to help steer newbies into craft beer.

Buckshot has good aroma, color and feel, but the follow through taste is lacking the positives given by the other first impressions. Overall, a drinkable slightly above average beer. In my opinion it could use a little more of an edge or aftertaste. A good beer to start with in a progression.

Poured an amber-red out of that attractive Natty Greene's growler. Small head the doesn't retain well. A little lace and mild carbonation.

Aromas present a good malt/hops balance. As with the aroma, you get a solid malt/hops balance, with some caramel undertones. Pleasing bitter aftertaste on the tongue.

This one is easily drinkable under just about any circumstance. Solid, solid, solid.

Pours a dark caramel amber with a thin a layer of white head that quickly fades to a thin layer. The nose has notes of grains and burnt toast. The flavor has notes of sweet caramel, toasted malt, and mild earthy hops. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, smooth, and moderately carbonated.

This is a smooth beer and easily drinkable, but it's rather lacking in flavor and forgettable.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear copper, with a finger of off-white foamy froth. Retains with a sturdy rich look that leaves a good bit of thick spotty lacing behind. The aroma has a LOT of toasted caramel breadiness going on with it, which gives the nose quite the citrus tinged tang in the nostrils. A touch of floral hops and spice hang on the edges but this is overall fairly roasted and tangy.

The taste is sticky sweet with caramel malts that spreads out in the mouth with a toasted feel. Hops give this a zesty and herbal citric tang as well as some light drying bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a relatively crisp sharpness to it but smoother feeling in the mouth overall.

Not bad. The heavier roasty feel of this was a bit of a turn off at first but the sweetness took more control as this warmed and managed to pull it together to keep this decently drinkable.
