wedgie9 (2701) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Tasted on 10/9/11 from a 12oz can purchased in a mixed six pack at Whole Foods Green Hills. Pours a hazy (surprisingly enough) amber with a thick off-white head that slowly recedes to uneven lace. The nose is full of intense, bitter resin, floral, and herbal hops, with the bread malt underlying, and acting as a backbone. The flavor is not quite as aggressively hoppy, but there are still resin, herbal, and floral hops, with the caramel and bread malt underlying. The body is a little lighter than medium, with average carbonation, and a medium lightly bitter hoppy finish.

Aroma is dried leaves with traces of caramel. Clear orange, thick yellow head. Dried leaves and caramel flavor, mostly dry. Finishes greener. Clean and well made.

Pretty damn good for an amber, which is not my favorite style. Have had this many, many time. About to run through as many Caldera beers as I can...

Can found at Vintner. Pours out an orange color with a white head on it. Smell is kind of hoppy but basically dominated by bread malts. Taste is smooth and very easy to drink. Somewhat interesting, but not near as good as the pale or the IPA.

mansquito (6248) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2011
Whole Foods Market, DC sixer ($11): Pours a copper color with a creamy beige head. Aroma is light toffee, a tiny bit of hops, and some caramel malts. I think that the body was a little thin. It seemed to me that this beer didnt really know what to do with itself. Not one of those hoppy high end ambers, nor is it a butterscotch complex one. It isnt a lame excuse for a craft beer either, like most amber ales. In fact, it is a little bit of nothing. Drinkable and has some flavor, but nothing that I would want to drink again.

Clear amber pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma shows some toastiness, caramel and citrus hops. Flavor follows suite. A little expensive.

TURDFERGUSON (4057) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2011 Mucho cans on the disc golf course and one at home. Layered amber with a steady off white head, lots of lacing. Fresh nose of caramel, toasted malt, herbal, grassy, citrus hops. Nice balance, light bitterness, a bit of tea, herbal and citrus hops, caramel. Lots of malt, but not too sweet, and appropriate bitter balance. Wish it wasnt 12 bucks a 6er.

emacgee (4671) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2011
Thanks turd for sharing. Pours sharp clean amber with one finger of sticky offwhite head. Nose shows toasted grain and a mild sweetness and herbal hop character. Well balanced and lacking in that really heavy caramel character that a lot of Ambers have. Flavor is nice and clean with a very mild and well integrated hop bitterness over toasted grain and light caramel notes. Nice, I could drink on this.

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 3, 2011
A decent beer, but not sure its true to style. A bit thin for the abv, and some toffee/burnt caramel which distracts from the clean hoppyness which makes itself known briefly before being overcome by the malt.

Can. Poured into a tulip glass a fairly clear copper amber color with a 2 finger ligth tan head. The nose has a sweet orange caramel aroma mixed with a slight breadiness. Medium mouthfeel. Starts with a light sweet orange flavor mixed with a some caramel notes. Slight bitterness in the end that lingers for a second. A fairly straight forward amber. Not bad but nothing extraordinary. Some lace left on the glass.
