2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. The pour was a clear pale yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that diminished rapidly, down to a sparse film with a very small collar and some poor spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a light grain malt, a mild grassy hop and a soapy yeast with a strong adjunct odor (rice and grain).
The taste was lightly acidic and had a light mild sweetness throughout with an ever so light bitterness at the end. The flavor lasted an average time with a mild grainy Lager taste left to linger for a short time longer.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a solid medium carbonation.
Overall a pretty basic tasting Lager, that is nice and low in alcohol and light enough not to fill you up. In other words, a great session beer that would be a good addition to a hot days beer selection...

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
