Golden/orange in color, this pale ale offers perfect clarity and an off- white head of foam that is slight but still manages to leave some lacing. The nose on this ale is one of citrus, pine, and caramel with some floral notes.
Tasting this beer reveals a somewhat different flavor than the nose led me to believe. There is a grapefruit component and some pine, but there are other flavors present like lemon, tea, biscuit- like malts, and honey. The beer finishes with an agreeable earthy hop dryness that is not overwhelming and the beer remains well- balanced overall.
This is definitely an interesting and balanced brew from this Oregon brewery and it took me a little by surprise. With its crystal clear body and other traits, I was expecting it to be a little too clean and perhaps too light. But the brewers seem to have struck the target they were trying to hit with this beer. Its flavor is pleasant, not extreme in any way, and the product is quite drinkable and memorable. It’s a good beer all- around and one that earns an easy recommendation.

Caldera Pale Ale has a thick, creamy, off-white head, a hazy, orange-gold appearance, which clouds up even more when the bottom contents are swished and poured in, and quite heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of rich, sugary, white bread, citrus, and hop oil. Taste is of all that, with some white bread crust, hefty, but not harsh, hop bitterness, and a slight caramel. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, and soft, and Caldera Pale Ale finishes dry, refreshing, and highly drinkable. Overall, this is a delicious beer.

Big light tan head settles to a frothy layering above a clear caramel honey golden colored beer.
Citrus and pine like hops with some light caramel malt notes in the aroma of this pale ale.
Light citrus hops coming through in the taste with a very light caramel malt making an appearance.
A light dryish aftertaste with a bit of the caramel malts sticking around and bringing a slight hops bitterness with it with this medium bodied Caldera beer.
Decent tastes without being overbearing.
