KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a clear pale yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that diminished rapidly, down to a sparse film with a very small collar and some poor spotty lacing. The aroma was of a light grain malt, a mild grassy hop and a soapy yeast with a strong adjunct odor (rice and grain). The taste was lightly acidic and had a light mild sweetness throughout with an ever so light bitterness at the end. The flavor lasted an average time with a mild grainy Lager taste left to linger for a short time longer. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a solid medium carbonation. Overall a pretty basic tasting Lager, that is nice and low in alcohol and light enough not to fill you up. In other words, a great session beer that would be a good addition to a hot days beer selection... http://www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeer

Can: Poured golden and white head. Aroma is grassy. Soft grassy could be very refreshing on a hot day.

Can from Mitsuyas. Drank from the can. Grainy aroma with light berry and some grassiness. Thin body with a malty watery mouthfeel. Slightly metallic with a grassy finish. Not very good.

Eigentlich ein sehr angenehmes Bierchen, das sich wunderbar trinken lsst ob seiner Leichtigkeit. Daneben bietet es jedoch auch ordentlich Hopfigkeit, viel Frische, einen leicht trockenen Abgang. Gute Sache.

For the most part, what separates craft beer from non-craft beer is the recipe. After all, the vast majority of the beer brewed and consumed in the world is of the adjunct lager style with only slight variations between recipes. So Im not sure what the point of Caldera Lawnmower Lager is since its very similar to the Big Boys brews in every facet. Not that its bad, though; in fact, Id definitely take this over a macro of the style, but there are better craft lagers out there.

I poured a 12oz can into a shaker glass. It was canned on 6/17/15 and cost $2.30 ($0.19 per ounce).

Appearance: Golden in color with spastic carbonation easily seen through the clear body. Pours to a small, white, foamy head which mostly dissipates but does leave a bit of a lacing.

Smell: Similar to other fizzy yellow lagers. No distinct malt or hop presence. Clean and inoffensive, though.

Taste: I think the best way to describe this palette would be as macro adjunct lager done better. Though thats not that great of a compliment. The taste here is quite familiar pale grain with only a touch of hops (its only 16 IBUs, after all). I get a slight tangy presence on the finish, maybe even some acetaldehyde. I was hoping for some real hop flavor, but theres just a light dry bitterness throughout. Its made with flaked rice so there is a familiar Budweiser-like component here. Still, it doesnt taste like canned corn or metallic like many macro brews.

Drinkability: I drank this specifically on a hot and sunny summer day because at only 3.9% ABV, its exactly the kind of beer you want for the situation. Unfortunately, Caldera Lawnmower Lager is not especially refreshing. In fact, there is a bit of a starchy taste that lingers. I will say its plenty crisp and easy to get down, though I would not consider it for sessioning because Im not enamored with the taste.

RATING: 5/10

Can from Ezo Beer. The nose is grainy bready pastry like light malts, herbal grassy hops. Light bodied, quite sweet and fairly fruity with a mildly bitter green hop finish. OK but kind of boring.
