Orange-gold beer with a thick foamy white head that lingers. Light citrus hop nose with undertones of spice. Flavor is biscuity malt up front followed by a grassy hop bite that lasts.The flavors are not overpowering, but they have a lasting quality to them. Good beer and worth a try.

Can. Dark gold, a little cloudy, light white head. Aroma and taste are skunky, not sure why. Otherwise, just okay.

Slayer85 (1044) - Firenze, ITALY - SEP 5, 2013
Can (5,5% ABV). A clear dark golden to pale amber beer, with a large, frothy, mostly lasting white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, cookies), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot, hint of pine), with notes of exotic fruits (pineapple). The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, average carbonation, long finish with moderate bitterness. Flavourful without being over the top. Consumed relatively fresh.

shigadeyo (2976) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2013

6/03/2010: Caldera Pale Ale... Aroma: Floral; similar to the aroma of the Valley Brewing West Coast IPA. Appearance: Hazy gold color; frothy, slowly dissipating off-white head that leaves puffy lacing. Flavor: Toasted toffee malts; floral; dry finish (kind of rye-like); peach syrup?; moderate bitterness. Palate: Medium-light; calm. Overall: This is a nice Pale Ale, but probably not worth the $2.75/can!

12 fl. oz. can (5.5% Alc/Vol) from The Party Source in Bellevue, KY. Rating #292 for this beer.

joeneugs (3108) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 27, 2013
12 oz. can. It pours a clear gold color with a rather large white head. The aroma is nice and floral with a good malt backbone. Not too much crystal. The flavor is very hop forward and has a strong, dry bitter finish. More florals and supporting maltiness. Pretty full bodied. Nice APA.
