Pours copper with a healthy white head. Nice lacing that sticks around. Not much nose, slight malt. Taste is well balanced but very light for my tastes. There's just not much there. A little toffee and malt, with a very understated hop finish. Not horrible, easily drinkable, just not that good.

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.

Served from bottle into a Stone nonic. Pours red-orange with a half finger off-white head that subsides slowly to a minimal amount. Maintains nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma is comprised of big sweet malt and slight piney hops. The flavor is of sweet malt, caramel, and very slight pine hop. It has a medium feel on the palate with low carbonation. Overall this is a decent Red Ale. Not my favorite that I have for the style nor from Natty Greene's, but still good. Has a pretty nice aroma and is very refreshing. A must try for any fan of the style.

Enjoyed out of a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
This is a tasty and somewhat unique ale from Natty Greene's. It pours nicely with a humble white head that dissipates fairly quickly with a bit more carbonation than I was expecting. It has a wonderful, balanced scent of several malts and fresh hops. Citrus hop flavors are strong in the flavor, but don't overpower it. This tastes something like a hybrid between a European and an American Amber Ale. Well balanced and very drinkable. Well done.

Served on tap in a shaker pint glass in the Vintage wine shop at RDU airport in NC.
Pours a medium amber with reddish hues. Some fluffy white foam atop.
Smell and taste - notes of caramel and toffee malts. Light hop bitter at the close, to give a firm finish.
Overall a solid amber - certainly a great sirport choice amidst the land of Bud and Bud Light.
