COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Colorado Native is a hand crafted lager made with all Colorado ingredients that celebrates the joys of life in Colorado.

Hold up a pint of Colorado Native and drink in its amber lager color, brought to life with pale and caramel malts from our famous Moravian 2-row barley. We painstakingly balanced its malt character against select Chinook, Centennial and Cascade hops to create a perfectly balanced, full-flavored beer. A lager yeast fermentation gives Colorado Native a slight fruitiness, complementing a citrus aroma note from a late kettle hop addition. Everything then comes together to deliver a clean taste and dry finish that is very drinkable by itself, or paired with your favorite foods.

Clear, copper colored, small non lasting beige head. Aroma is of some malt, caramel, some brown sugar and bit herbal notes. Taste is medium sweet caramel, biscuit and brown sugar, medium- herbal bitterness with a hint of citrus, bit bready, somewhat dry, actually a pleasant finish and aftertaste. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Not that bad. (bottle from the brewery)

On tap at United Lounge, DEN airport. Hazy dark amber body with thin lasting head. Nose is toasty, caramel, a tad sweet. Taste is similar of malts, caramel, spices. Creamy finish. Okay, but just a bit too sweet in the finish.

Generous sample after the Coors Brewery tour, pouredin a small pils glass. Clear lighter amber color with off-white head. Aroma notes of citrus/gassy hops and grainy malt sweetness. Taste adds tad caramel and faint pine bitterness. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp with some lingering citrus finish. Pretty good amber lager, too bad only available in CO.

Golden brown in color, minimal head and lacing. Smells of shortbread and herbal hops. Herbal hoppiness and bread in taste also with a mild bitter aftertaste.

6/26/2015: Golden Block Brewery wasn’t actually brewing their own yet, but I talked to the owner and brewmaster, Floyd, for awhile while my girlfriend and I enjoyed a pint of Colorado Native... Beautiful orange color with an off white head. Flavor is quite nice and extremely balanced with some toasted maltines, light citrusy hops, some fruitiness. The bitterness is fairly moderate Clean, slightly dry, good all around. This beer was enjoyable and is what Coors should be instead of what it currently is! Draught (pint) at Golden Block Brewery in Silverton, CO.
