3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Caldera Pale Ale) Can 355 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 5.5%
Clear golden orange colour on the body, tall and thick white head, with very good retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass.
Nice citrus aroma, light hops,very fruity. Taste also fruity but not as the aroma suggested, citrus, some piney notes especially on the finish, Begins kinda sweet but it develops quickly an intense enough bitterness, with long duration on the aftertaste.
Medium body, nicely carbonated, mildly dry palate.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 355ml can. Pours clear light golden with two fingers of slightly off white head. Smells is malts, light sweet fruits (apricots), some citrus marmalade. Taste is similar with the hops muted, probably by the time. I guess a too old can to fully appreciate it. Not very pleasant bitter finish.
