Natty Greenes "Southern Pale Ale"
Natty Greenes Brewing Company - Greensboro, North Carolina USA
Pale Ale (ABV5.3%)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.4/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a slightly hazy golden amber with a large (2-3 finger) white rocky head that had great retention and lasting throughout producing thick sheets of lacing.

The aroma was to say the least nice and hoppy of a pine hop, a grain malt and a soapy yeast with nice strong notes of citrus and caramel.

The taste was bold and bitter with a hint of caramel at first then became extremely hoppy with a real nice dose of citrus at the end. The flavor lasted a really long time allowing for full enjoyment of this beyond hoppy brew.

Mouthfeel was just a bit beyond light in body and dry in texture with a nice prickly carbonation.

Overall this Pale Ale is by far one of the better ones out there. If I did not know any better, I would have taken it for an IPA.

    Mark It sure does. Love it when a beer just blows me away. Never expected a pale ale too but this pale ale does.
