ours clear yellow with a modest white head and a floral aroma. There is a fruity light malt flavor with a carbonated slightly bitter finish.

Can from Roth’s. Light golden in color. Grainy nose. Sour and creamy. Smells like a real cheap pale lager. Grainy and off in flavor. Not a very good pale lager. Not nearly as clean as even the worst BMC lager.

mansquito (3870) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2015
The Sampler, Brooklyn can: Pours really pale with a small white head. aroma is light bread and maybe one hop. Taste is really light. Somewhat crisp. Relatively low sweetness. Did not realise that the alcohol was this low. Aint a bad beer and I guess it do what it do.

tom10101 (3368) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 25, 2015
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.

jake65 (2810) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 1, 2015
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.

maekchu (2505) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 1, 2015
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.

Fatehunter (1474) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 14, 2014
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.
