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.

This is the most interesting amber ale I have tried. I have enjoyed them fresh as well as after having warmed up and there is an incredible difference. This beer looses its splendour fast. The perfect balance of hop and malts are present here. As should be the case with a hoppy amber, the aromatic hops give way for triumphant nutty malty finish. P.s. Itís rarely too hot for a native.

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. Itís 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.

Have tried this several times since the brewery launch, and it has improved each time. Early versions pour reddish brown with an off white head, with a moderate malt aroma and light fruity note. The first taste brings chocolate to the forefront, with a mild carbonic bite, but this beer has developed over time and is more subtle and complex, with better balance between malt, hops and carbonation. Any sweaty socks character (Hbuck72) had to be an anomally at the tap bar, becasue I have tasted this numerous times and never experienced any real off flavors. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel - one of my tap brew favorites. BREW!!!

This beer pours a deep amber with a thin white head. The aromas are citrus, pine, bread. The mouthfeel is sticky and bitter with a medium body. Good beer! Cheers!

Crystal clear, copper color, great head retention and good german lace. A nicely done amber. Not too sweet as most ambers that I have tried. Very crisp and clean. With a nice hop aroma and balanced mouthfeel. I would almost consider this a pale with the amount of hops. I loved it

Huge head, off white, creamy, mostly staying, cloudy, dark amber color. Hoppy fruity aroma. Initially a little sweet then transforming into a nice hoppy bitter. Long duration. Creamy medium to full body. I really like this beer.

Pours a rich copper color with a fluffy foam that rises about three fingers or so and laces beautifully. On the nose its fresh amber grain, earthy caramel and light citrus undertones. The palate follows suit with a round refreshing body thats grainy, triscuit crackers, toasted malt.. great citrus and a slight peach fruit note carryís the mid palate into the finish with a refreshing bitterness. This shit is good !

Great head with plenty of lacing, retention is very good as well. Beautiful amber color. Aroma shows many layers of grain not much hops though. First taste brings little bubbles followed with rich grainy malt. The hops do finally show up for the party in the finish. Iím more of an hops guy but think these guys did a great job on the malt.

Huge thanks to 4balance (on BA) for this and several other awesome beers! Poured from 16oz can to dimpled mug: Pours exactly as it should: a still, amber body capped with healthy dollops of off-white cream and sticky lacing. The nose is pretty intriguing... spruce-like hops, caramel malts, quite fresh... fresh grass, soft fruits, pretty inviting for what is typically such a tame genre. Smooth on the tongue. Served just bellow cellar temp, the dense, creamy head make this one too easy to drink. This maintains a level of complexity without taking away from its approachability, which is a balance that isnít often achieved. Many of the highlights from the aroma show themselves in the taste. Overall, very grateful to have had the opportunity to try this one. And especially grateful that Iíve got another in the fridge!

This one could almost pass for an IPA. It has a sweet hoppy smell and a dirty amber appearance. I think the tap offering is better than from the can. There is a strong hops presence that rivals that of Stoneís Levitation. I think this is better balanced though. Very good offering to the category. The palate is thicker than expected which adds to its uniqueness. If youíre in OK pick one up.
