COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Description: Native Amber is an audacious blend of hops and malt. Caramel and biscuit notes carry the Cascade and Cluster hop additions through to an enjoyably round finish. The malt complexity proves rich and the dry-hopped character is invigorating.

Pours a pretty deep amber color. Smell is of hops and malts. Taste is hops up front, some malts showing up at the finish. Overall an enjoyable beer.

A pretty decent amber, but nothing special. A little hoppier than the average amber and has a nice sweet finish. Tried at the Lawrence Beer Expo in 2015.

16 oz refrigerated can into pint glass. Nice fluffy head; good retention. Great ruby/amber cool. Clear. Nose is malt and biscuit. Taste is caramel, biscuit, and citrusy hops. Great balance between the malt and hops. Leans sweet. Creamy mouthfeel.

Pretty brown color. The head was creamy, but not thick like a stout beer. Medium light and very tasty. This beer is smooth and far from heavy. I enjoy the lightly roasted caramel mixed with hints of butter. I think I can taste a little banana. This is smooth. It kind of reminds me of an IPA because it has that Tony Cox hops profile. I love the very light, malty backbone. It’s not stinky. Heavy malt liquor sucks!!! Sorry Colt 45. This is refreshing like all the breakfast beverages at once: Citrus juice, Coffee, Donuts, and a little milk.

deyholla (8003) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2014
On tap. Pours a clear deep amber with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of grass and earthy grains with a bit of sweetness backing. Flavor has earthy sweet grains and toffee with a bit of grass towards the finish.

tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Can: Cloudy red, rusty copper pour with a beige head that reduces to a collar quickly. Strange, conflicting aroma with juicy grapefruit flesh, light weediness, mild fusel alcohol, faint peppery notes, & a touch of stale, caramel malt sweetness. Like a weird mix of what you’d expect from both a red ale & a brown ale... with more hops... & fusel notes (even only at 6.1% ABV). Taste is surprisingly watery on the palate, given the strength of the aroma (no matter how strange). Hint of pine cones with a wood chip-like hop presence; I’d say "earthy" but there’s a stronger, woodsy essence about them. Finishes with white pepper covered grapefruit peel, light in execution with faint spiciness. Warmth brings out the fusel notes in the lingering aftertaste again. Getting weird vibes from this one, not really sure where to place my finger. Not undrinkable by any means, but certainly not my jam.

Can poured a dark reddish brown. Thin layer of head smell and taste of bread, malt, hops and sweet after taste

Can at home, courtesy of OKBeerFan. Cheers! Pour is deep amber with a big cream-colored head and good lacing. Grapefruity, bready, lightly roasty, doughy, sweet citrusy, oranges, floral, and honey aroma. Taste is toasted bread, doughy, grapefruity, orange peel, lightly grassy, caramel, doughy, and toffee with a lightly bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Really tasty amber.
