New Beer Blog Natty Greene’s Buckshot Filtered Amber Ale


image

In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Natty Greene’s Buckshot Filtered Amber Ale.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this southern craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know this craft brewery.  Let us get into this amber ale.

It has a clear light amber color with a white constant head. The aroma has a sweet malty to slight caramel notes. The taste has a sweet malty to a nutty notes with a dry malty aftertaste. It is a pretty drinkable beer.

Here is a description from their website (www.nattygreenes.com):

Brewer’s Notes

Richly colored, characterized by balanced hop and malt profiles with roasted toffee and caramel highlights, Crafted to be rich but not heavy. Hospitable and easy to get along with, this is our best selling beer, perfect for every occasion.

We use six different malts, that’s unusual for an amber ale, but essential to creating its deep, full flavor. The distinctive toffee / roasty notes come from three Belgian malts, especially the Special B roast malt. And to nothing interferes with all that good maltiness, we use mild American aroma hops, just to balance the sweetness.

Closing,  I am not a huge fan of Red, Irish Red, and Amber ales.  I respect the beer style but I do not go out of my way to pick it up.  I will drink them.  A friend of mine from Tri-City was down south and brought back a few beers.  This beer was part of that pile.  It is a solid beer and true to the beer style.  There is nice aroma and tasting notes.  I believe craft beer drinkers that love red and amber ales will love this beer.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

New Beer Blog Natty Greene’s Southern Pale Ale


image

In this beer blog, we are going to get into the second beer in the last few days from Natty Greene’s Brewing.  It is their flagship beer, which is Southern Dry-Hopped Pale Ale.  If you read my earlier beer blog post on their Red Nose Winter Ale, you know the history of this southern craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read it to get to know this North Carolina base craft brewery.  Let us get into this Pale Ale.

It has a slightly cloudy golden color with a white constant head. The smell has a heavy orange and citrus notes. The taste has a light in body with hints of citrus notes. The aftertaste has a dry bitter with almost a pepper corn note. It is pretty drinkable beer.

Here is a description from the beer bottle:

Natty Greene’s Southern Dry-Hopped Pale Ale is all about showcasing the signature big citrus-pine flavor of Oregon-grown Cascade hops.  On the malt side, it’s kept super simple to let the hops steal the show.  One of Natty Greene’s top selling beers, and for good reason, the Southern Pale Ale opens with aromas of floral, citrus and pine.  The palate is simple, crisp and refreshing with notes of grapefruit and bitter pale-malt.  Excellent balance.

Here is a description from their website (www.nattygreenes.com):

Everything about this beer is crafted to showcase the signature big-citrus-with-just-a-hint-of-pine flavor of Oregon-grown Cascade hops. On the malt side, we keep things super simple so the hops have plenty of room to show off. Then, throughout the entire process – brewing, dry-hopping, and aging – we take special care to get everything just right, so you get a truly distinctive beer that exemplifies the best in southern craftsmanship.

Closing, I just feel that pale ales are so underrated now since the IPA’s blow up the beer market.  Craft breweries are making more and more session IPA’s and forgetting there is already that beer style out there.  It is pale ale.  I know session IPA’s are not going away anytime soon.  I am starting to see more and more pale ales entering back the market.  I believe craft beer drinkers are starting to go back to traditional beer styles.  This beer has a nice balance and it is different than rest of the pale ales on the market.  It is pretty good beer and I respect what they did with this classic beer style. I am glad that I tried it and I will try to trade for more.  I recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

New Beer Blog Natty Greene’s Red Nose Winter Ale


image

In this winter beer blog, we are go to sample beers from Natty Greene’s Brewing for the first it.  We are going to try this winter ale and next day it will be their flagship ale, which is Southern Pale Ale.  Natty Greene’s Brewing was founded in 2004 by Chris Lester and Kayne Fisher.  They are located in Greensboro, North Carolina in the downtown area.  They brought aboard Scott Christoffel as their Head Brewer.  They are fastest growing brewery in the United States and cause them to open two more breweries in the state.  Let us get into this winter red ale.

It has a clear ruby red color with a constant light tan color head. The smell has a cinnamon to light orange notes. The taste has a nice malty warm winter welcome and turns into a nice orange and cinnamon aftertaste with hints of spice of ginger. It is a sipping beer.

Here is a description from the beer bottle:

The Red Nose Winter Ale is a deliciously festive beer that’s crafted to complement the colder season.  Red Nose begins as classic American Red Ale, a beer that’s slightly sweeter than an Amber, then, plenty of caramel malts, spice, and just enough hops are added for balance.  Fresh ginger gives a nice bite, orange peel add tartness, and cinnamon brings in a clean, spicy note.  Together, they’re a perfect complement to the sweet, malty foundation of the Red Ale.

Here is a description from their website (www.nattygreenes.com):

Brewer’s Notes For Red Nose, we start with a classic American red ale, a beer that’s slightly sweeter than an amber, made with plenty of caramel malts and just enough hops for balance. Then, we bring in a spice profile that supports the aroma of the beer. Fresh ginger gives Red Nose a nice bite. A bit of orange peel adds tartness, and cinnamon brings in a clean and spicy top note. Together, they’re a perfect complement to the sweet, malty foundation of the red ale.This is a beer that’s crafted to complement your holiday meals and celebrations. Like the season, it’s festive, warm-hearted, companionable – and meant to be shared with your favorite folks.

In the end, I am always looking to try new beers that I have never had.  I decided to join a Beer of the Month.  It is deliveried to my house once a month.  In my first month, I received two different beers from Natty Greene’s Brewing.  Red Nose is their seasonal and is well balanced.  I enjoyed the nice tasting notes from this red ale and other spices.  It is different and I would trade for it next winter season.   It taste almost like Frankenmuth Christmas Town Ale from Michigan.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!
