(12oz can thanks to ericandersnavy) Pours clear copper with nice bubbles. Nose of sweet bread, orange marmalade, and citrus hops. Taste of bread, faded hops, bready, citrus with some oils in the finish. Nicely carbonated with a mild bitter finish. Caldera makes a typically boring style better than average.

Mora2000 (5927) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this can. The beer pours a nice orange color with a white head. The aroma is sweet malt along with some nice orange citrus hops. The flavor is toffee and bready malt along with some light hop bitterness and orange hop flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A pretty good beer, but it smells better than it tastes.

MmmcKay (1052) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - MAR 25, 2010
Can. Pours a deep dark copper amber color. Rich in appearance for an amber. Absolutely loved the nose of this beer. It had a lot going on. There was certainly a malt presence with notes of caramel, toffee, and toast, but it was light and pleasant. Hop presence was more earthy than I usually get. Blended in really well. Great presence of dried fruits, raisins, apricots, nuts, trail mix. Soft and subtle at times, but bold in the right areas. Best amber that I’ve had in awhile.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2010
12oz. Can: Aroma of malt, Earth, light caramel, slight brown sugar, and a hint of floral hops. Poured amber in color with a huge, creamy, dense, fluffy, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Slightly sparkling. A few tiny particles. Good lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of caramel, Earth, slight hops, and a hint of brown sugar. Medium body. Lightly chalky, slightly dry texture. Soft to average carbonation. Caramel, malt, and Earth finish is lightly chalky and slightly dry.

Dogbrick (9183) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2010
Sample from a can at the "Portland? Psh More Like Beerland" tasting on 03/10/10. This brew is a clear amber-orange color with a thin off-white head that recedes quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. The aroma is malty and has a moderate hops presence too. Medium body with a roasted malt character and floral hops and citrus flavors. The finish is sweet and malty and lingers a bit. Decent overall.
