Notes: Colorado Native Olathe. Whether it is fruits, vegetables, grains, or hops, the fertile ground from Fruita to Palisade down to Montrose and from Paonia to Delta produces world-class agriculture. To celebrate the harvest season, we brew this lager as a tip of the hat to those Colorado farmers who work the ground to feed us all.

To provide the backbone for this German-style lager, we mashed in Charles two-row winter barley, Moravian two-row barley and world-renowned Olathe corn. We added Crystal and Nugget hops, grown in Olathe, within a mile of the barley and corn. The resulting taste has a rich, malty honey character with clean bitterness.

YEAST: Native House Lager Yeast

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Look: Pale orange-gold, looks like apple juice. Small white head that quickly dissipates.

Smell: Sweet corn, grain, a bit of hops. Mostly just a crisp scent, honestly it kind of smells like Keystone Light but... better.

Taste: Corn and grain, but more rich than I expected.

Feel: Normal carbonation, warm, dry mouthfeel after swallowing.

Overall: I was a bit nervous when I read a previous review and saw it was an Adjunct Lager, but I'm glad I tried this one. I really would say it's pretty much a Keystone or something similar, but better. Nothing to write home about, but certainly not bad. Easy drinking, would recommend for campfires. 3s all around.
