3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Natty Greenes, Greensboro NC on 13 July 2006 as Natty’s Pale Ale (noted at 5.2%). Mid gold colour with a thin white head. A pleasant, clean, fresh APA with plenty of bitterness and citrus fruit. Quite assertive. Maybe a little short of malt backup but hit the spot quite nicely. Crisp and quaffable.

This beer pours a clear copper-gold color with a thin bone white head that evaporates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops and sweet malt. Medium body with flavors of pine, earthy malt and muted hops. Touches of fruit too. The finish is hoppy with a short citrusy aftertaste. This bottle was possible slightly past its prime. Pretty average overall.
