3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. can shared by shigadeyo. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma is sweet caramel malt, some fruit mainly citrus with light herbal and grassy notes. The flavor had moderately sweet caramel malt, orange rinds, biscuity notes and mild bitterness in the finish. This was a decent amber, the can gets extra points, but the price point they have set for this in our area will keep people from buying this when there are so many superior alternatives that are less expensive.

Nice mid-range malty flavor with some sweet caramel too. Has some floral and citrus hops through it but mostly the malts. Nice.

NIce copper amber hue with a decent malty caramel aroma. Taste had good caramel soft body and enough complexity to keep me interested. This would be a very fine session beer. However a little pricey.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a medium amber color with a mild off-white head which dies down to a thin layer, leaving some spotty lacing.
S: There are aromas of sweet caramel malt along with fruity hop notes of tangerines and grapefruits.
T: The flavor is sweet and mildly sugary with plenty of caramel and a slight toast. The fruit character is not really present, but there is a mild pine bitterness on the finish.
M: The body is medium with a somewhat low level of carbonation.
D: The flavors are sort of unspectacular, but a decent enough amber. That said, I’d much rather go for the Caldera IPA or Pale Ale.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can from Beers of Europe. Sweet malty aroma, cloudy brown colour with strange greenish brown head. Flowery spicy ferric flavour with sickly sweet lingering finish. Not really my type of beer.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Great foam, great color, spicy/slighty floral after taste. The mid and after taste is strong while the front is smooth. A perfect beer if I ever tasted one.
