Rather smooth flavor, light, with a slight nutty aftertaste.
Overall a "good" craft and local Greensboro NC brewery
Would order again when I'm back to a location with a limited beer menu

Pours copper with a short head, good lacing throughout. Wheats, hints of fruits are present in the nose. Taste is a little stronger than others in the style, which is good though. A nice blend of wheats, creamy barley, slight fruits, and a moderate hops bring a very satisfying flavor. Mouthfeel is crisp and enjoyable. A hearty amber that I'd definitely have again if I'm ever in Greensboro.

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.

Bottle had some code but it is indecipherable. Served in a tulip glass.

Poured a mostly clear deep copper with a thick white head. Head faded slowly to a small (maybe half a centimeter thick) cap and left quite a bit of lacing.

Smells is mostly malty with a bit of hops. I detected a faint metallic smell.

Tastes primarily of grain, but is well balanced by bitterness. Unlike their Pale Ale the bitterness here rather nice and not overpowering. Sweet and caramely, but not cloyingly so as I've found with a number of other amber ales.

The carbonation level is reasonable, and the body is light without being overly thin. A pretty good balance.

I could quaff this all night long. A nice well balanced ale, and much preferred by me to their pale ale.
