Can picked up at the Bier Stein and snuck into an Emeralds game and poured into one of their cups. Poured a nice copper hue with a moderate tan head. Aroma was caramel, some roast and a light earthy hop note. Flavor was much the same, but with a real buttery aspect to the mouthfeel until the very end when it became a little more crisp. Decent amber, though of course nowhere near the quality of their uncanned Dry Hop Red.

Can. Dark bronze beer with a strongish head. The aroma is gently hopped and the flavour is strongishly hopped, bitter and gently roasted. Overall a nice gently hopped beer.

Can from BevMo. Pours a clear medium amber with a 1 finger thick off white head. Nice roasty nose with some pine, toffee and mixed nuts. Flavor was much of the same. Finishes light in body and quite roasty.

TheBeerGod (5284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Can. Amber pour. Go figure. Tall off-white head. Aroma is strong hop notes, light pine and citrus. Some caramel as well. Taste is spicy hops, pine, light citrus, caramel, hints of toffee, nuts and earthy notes. Lots of melon and pear coming through towards the back end. Body is light-medium and the carbonation, while there, is rather soft. Finishes with a bigger malt and toffee flavor along with more spicy hops, citrus notes, melon, earthy notes and light pine. Tasty!

12 oz. can from Johnís Market Place in Portland, Oregon. Glad I found the Caldera stuff, and glad that I was able to purchase a single of it. Dark caramel brown color with a head that fades away quickly but leaves a nice thin head around the edge and spots of head on top. Very nice looking amber. Almost a roasted toffee flavor. Very nice aroma. Sweet malty aroma mixes well with the subtle toffee roast. A fairly pungent ale. Wow, big toffee/malt flavor. In my mind the toffee roast and malt flavors are the biggest part of the beer. The beer has a nice palate i.e. very smooth and creamy for an amber. Full bodied beer I must say. I donít understand the low rating. The hops are very subtle an not overpowering the malts. Pretty good roast toffee/malt amber. Give it a try!

Location: 12 oz can from Normís, 8/10/09

Aroma: Caramel and matly, toffee, light hops, light spice
Appearance: Hazy amber color, 2 fingers of lingering off-white head, some spotty lacing
Flavor: Smooth tasty beer, mostly malty with a light hop backing
Palate: A bit dry, solid mouthfeel, sessionable
Overall Impression: Not often do I buy a beer from Oregon in Md and go to rate it and find out Iím #29. Odd... I wonder if this one is just starting to get a bigger distribution network? Either way, tasty beer. Not overly exciting, but pretty solid and sessionable. Iíd drink this beer again, definitely would make for a nice tailgating/camping/outdoor drinking beer.

Can. Amber with a fluffy off-white foam. Aromas are toffee and spices with toast and caramel. Ripe Autumn fruit with light pine. Flavours are sweet toffee with cream and pear. Gentle, sweet addictive hops with some woodiness and pine. Viscous on the palate. Good.
