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.

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.

The beer arrived on the outside table a pale amber with a tan compact head.

The aroma was fruity with a slight hoppiness.

The flavor had a grainy character with a light caramel and a nice medium hop bitterness.

The finish was dry with lingering hops and the body was medium.

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.
