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.

Pours let get amber with little head. Aroma is mostly yeasty with only mild hints or caramel and biscuity malt. Taste again is mostly yeast and carbonation with a very light malt body. Nothing great, especially for Colorado. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Coors. Amber color. Aroma of grains and some hop bitterness. By no means a great craft beer but refreshing, with some flavor and drinkable enough. Thin lacing head.

slowrunner77 (6755) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 30, 2014
"pretty much what i expected. the hops used were good, but pretty lightly used. amber in color, light-medium bodied. floral aroma, with a little sweet malt (flavor too), just a touch on the weak side."

Block (1650) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2014
What you would expect. Light and crisp. Grassy, sweet. A good beer for hot day and something you should definitely pack with you.

Kinda cool that it is made with all Colorado ingredients, but overall boring, usual, grainy pale lager. Not much else to note.
