3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can (12 oz) bought @ Winooski Beverage Warehouse.
Appearance: Clear pale yellow/golden with a medium quickly diminishing but easy to revive creamy off-white head and good lacing.
Aroma: Mild, but interesting nonetheless with a nice herbal presence, light spiciness, lemon, fresh cereals and light apples notes.
Taste: Crisp malts, freshly cutted grass, light spiciness, lemony notes and mild honeyed sweetness.
Palate: Light body. Lively carbonation. Clean and crisp mouthfeel while being a bit fluffy too. Dry and herbal finish. Mild moderately lasting spiciness.
Overall: Best Pale Lager I have ever had by a fair margin. A beer I would easily drink a 4-pack while working outside on hot summer days (only the days I don’t have a fresh Walden growler in the fridge though). Well executed light quenching beer.

Draft. Faint aroma of wet grass. A whole lot of flavor from a 3.9% beer. Lots of lemon with some... pepper? As good as any American lager.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Brewforia. Clear golden, medium depth with lots of bubbles. Big fluffy white head and tons of lacing. The nose is rather potent; sweet, grassy, and corn syrup. Taste follows the aroma with more emphasis on grass and lager malt. A little bit of cereal grains. Crisp finish. Medium body weight and a silky feel. Not a lot going here, but good for what it is.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Minimal malty nose, grass, hint of lemon. Light gold straw, thin white head. Some small pale malts, sweet, a touch of citrus, and moves to a powdery cake-mix sweetness in finish. Thin body. So-so..... expected more from Caldera.

Pretty nice session beer. Very well balanced with a nice bready backbone and some grainy bitterness at the end.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a finger of head on a clear golden body.
The aroma is a nice dry grain smell.
The taste is a mild to moderate pine bitterness, slowly moves to a honey sweet finish. Great profile.
The texture is crisp and a little fizzy.
An excellent lager.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tin, 355ml from Jude the Obscure, Jericho, Oxford. Pale gold with fizzed white head. Thin, corny, malty beer with an over sweet character. Some honey notes perhaps, but really a lemonade beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can pour. Pours a super light color with a faint lemon grassy aroma. Super easy drinking beer, as expected. Light bready flavor with some subtle grassy flavors as well. Just a tad sweet. Really sessionable beer for me. I could kill a ton of these watching football all day. Pretty impressive light beer for me. Enjoyed this.
