3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml can.
Pours clear golden color with a large white head. Lots of dry orange and pale malts on the nose, some resin, faint nuts and hops. Grapefruits and orange on the flavor, slightly bitter malts, bread also. Medium carbonation, bitter palate. I would have like it more fruitier and less malty, quite simple.

(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.

"an aromatic well balanced pale ale. maybe a touch on the hoppy side, but i’ll never complain about that. blending/balance seems to be Calderas thing. this is a nice pale i’d buy more of if it were available here."
