BEER INFO

Brewed by:
AC Golden Brewing Company

Style: American Amber / Red Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / 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.

This beer represents everything I love about Colorado. Amber Is my favorite sweet beer and the microbrewery capital of america does not dissappoint when it comes to this amazing Gem. Not a beer to be taken lightly, smooth to go down, strong feel after. A bold beer crafted after only beautiful colorado local ingrediants. If you want to picture yourself in the Rocky mountains and taste the sweetness of the beautiful flowers that grow wild here while enjoying the crispness of fresh snowmelt then this is the beer for you.

6/25/17...off the Coors brewery tour. Pours medium copper with a light head of clingy white foam. Light caramel sweet nose. Smooth semi sweet taste. Amber caramel. Light bite, enough to balance the sweetness. Chewy finish. Tasty.

Beer pours a dark amber with frothy inch & half head. Aroma was basic malts, flavor was good flavored malt, biscuity flavors with a balanced dry finish. Reminded me of a stronger Coors Extra Gold or maybe Winterfest. Good solid amber and best beer I've had from Coors in a while.

Very true to the style of an Amber Lager, well balanced, simple, and very refreshing. My first Colorado-based beer and I'll definitely purchase again.
