A full-bodied amber ale with a rich, smooth flavor, just the right balance of hops and notes of caramel and toffee.

nearbeer (3774) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 26, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 12 oz., bb Aug 08. Clear dark copper with a ruby tinge and a small, creamy head that lasts and laces well. Aroma of earth-spiced molasses, tea leaf and caramel. Flavor is grain, molasses, tea leaf, biscuit, light apple, toasted nut and some slight resin on the finish. Light-medium body is smooth and lightly hop-tingly. This is a very good example of an English style premium bitter.

This is like an amber ale dueling with an APA. The amber starts out ahead in the nose, but then the APA gets a foothold and hops start to take over. But amber prevails with a biscuity, caramel assault in the finish. Great beer to drink, my favorite from Natty Greene’s. First tried at mini-beerfest at Durham Art & Science Museum, Science of Beer event.

12 ounce bottle from Lowes Foods in Hickory, NC on 4/7/11. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized frothy offwhite head. Decent head retention and lacing. Malty, nutty aroma. The taste is caramel, nuts, chocolate and bitter hops. Medium bodied. Refreshing. Nice beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4971) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2012
My friends Tom and Jen brought this one up from North Carolina. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel color with a medium sized creamy orange-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy caramel, nut and was very malty. The flavor was toasted caramel, malt, faint dark fruits and toffee. The finish was medium length toffee and caramel. Medium body and smooth. Very good for style.

Travlr (12269) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Draft at the source. Clear amber color. Aroma of caramel. Taste is caramel on toasted graham crackers, very nice flavor for what is usually a pretty plain style.
