Poured on tap into a shaker pint glass.

A very solid copper amber body with clear rising carbonation. Tan light head prsented and with scattered lacing. Pretty solid looking amber.

Nose brings a nice crisp feeling with toasty grains. Mild caramel and nice lager yeast compliment nicely.

Palate matches hinted nose. Lager thick with a nice light toasty caramel. A little bit of fruity esters also on the finish.

Just a real solid nice simple amber lager.

Poured from can into plastic cup. Purchased on Frontier Airlines LGA to DEN for $6. Enjoyed while watching Czech vs Portugal UEFA 2012. This is gonna be a good trip...

Pours a deep amber brown with a finger of off white head. Malt and buscuity aromas, slight hop notes. Taste is identical but more hops, malty and sweet buscuit but a nice balance of mild but present hops. It is very drinkable, balanced, and pretty tastey and at 5.5 abv is an easy session brew. Nice brew and great way to start my quick trip to Colorado.

Bought at Mile High in Belmar at $6.99 for a sixer. I like that it is an all CO made beer.

Smell is bready with a light flowery and citrusy smell from the hops. Definitely not in your face like a PA or IPA.

Taste is a little sweet, bready from Munich-type malts. Fair amount of bitterness and a light orangey/grapefruit flavor from the hops. The sweetness makes me think of crystal-type malts, but I pick up only subtle caramel flavors

Drinkability is high. I could take down a lot of these this spring.

A good lager with some hops presence that has a good malt backbone that makes me think of a marzen. Price point is about right. I like this better than SA Noble Pils and Boston Lager which I think it competes with. Definitely worth a try.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

I've had Colorado Native a few times now and decided to pick up a 6-pack for the wife and friends as I think it would appeal to a variety of drinkers, plus its a Colorado brew! Time for review...

A - Poured from 12oz bottle to pint glass. The beer pours a soft copper/amber with a finger head of perfectly white head with decent retention and lacing.

S - Surprisingly hoppy aroma. I know they used Colorado grown hops but I wasn't expecting such a hoppy nose.

T/M - The beer starts with toasted specialty grains immediately and transitions to the hop character: almost a floral fruity citrus mix with mild bitterness. The beer finishes clean with a hint of hops on the palette that lingers. Medium bodied.

D - Very drinkable.

Overall, I found Colorado Native to be a unique beer. It's easy to put down and is a nice blend of lager and hops. I'd recommend you try it should you be given the chance.

Medium sized off white head quickly settles into a nice lasting lacing above a super clear copper colored beer.

Medium roasted caramel malt aroma with a touch of light hops on a lighter aroma.

Caramel malts that have a well roasted malt quality to them give this lager its warm malty taste.

A light dryish aftertaste with a bit of the caramel malt tastes remaining on this medium bodied beer.

A pretty decent tasting amber, drinks pretty easily.
