Can pours hazy gold with a thin white head. Aroma is Cascade hops and biscuits, with a little citrus. Flavor is generally the same. Sweeter than I expected. Creamy mouthfeel. Still pretty crisp and refreshing. A decent pale.

loubar (90) - Los Gatos, California, USA - DEC 28, 2014
12 oz. can from Best Damn Beer Shop. Medium sized creamy white head on a golden body. Nose of yeast with subtle fruity hops. Taste begins with a bit of caramel malt. Then a hoppy, piney bitterness sets in along with some light citrus tones. Aftertaste is dry and bitter in the style of a good IPA. Crisp, clean and refreshing!

Malty, fruity taste with notes of citrus, grapefruit, caramel, hints of crystal malt and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Fresh and tasty. Nice one.

Douberd (2618) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2014
(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. Very good.

"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."
