hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2010
Can from BofE. Orange amber colour with a white head, Looks very nice. Piney hop aroma. Taste has ash, grassiness, a hint of pineapple, followed by a long sharp bitter finish. Haven’t had a beer for a bit after a chest infection, so this went down pretty well.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Dark amber/ruby, thick frothy beige head. Aroma is mild floral hops and caramel. Taste is sweet with enough hops to give great flavor but not to overwhelm. Thick creamy texture, great malt body. Smooth clean finish, lots of flavor.

elihapa (1532) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Somehow the name of this beer sounds more attractive having once tried the product. Perhaps that is because this beer actually has a strong toasty, biscuity, “ashy” component – complemented with plenty of caramel and red fruit – to make Ashland seem downright proper. Bold flavor, good balance. Nothing to sneer at.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2009
20091227 12oz can from State Line. Pretty copper-amber color with little but lingering off white head. Aroma is pure PNW with prominent citrus and light resin, cookie dough. Some light dishwater notes in the aroma, too, and it’s definitely not because of my glass. Light bodied with spritzy eff and quick, brisk finish. Flavor adds resinous hop notes, lemongrass, biscuit. Overall it’s a bit on the bland side for a five and a half percent beer, but it’s pleasant enough. For the same money, I’d rather quaff some Stone Levitation and save the calories, although the fact that these Caldera beers are canned is excellent and convenient.

A Mes rate. Can at Borefts 10am day after hotel tasting.
Amber colour with a decent off white head. Middle of the road caramel malty stuff. Slightly astringent hops, and plenty of fruit in the finish. A little boring but decent enough.
