Nice amber color and sticky white head.

Light hop presence backed by a strong malt body and a bit of yeast. A bit flowery and sweet.

Tastes solidly malty with a decent hop touch. A bit sour on the finish but otherwise not bad at all. Finishes smooth as well.

Not bad, a more enjoyable amber and very nice looking to say the least.

I seem to have had better luck than RedDiamond with Caldera's beers. Luckily, I've never had a contaminated beer from Caldera. (Might the problem be the tap lines at the Creek? I've never had trouble with Caldera at the Black Sheep...)

Pours a clear and light amber, with one finger of off-white, moderately lingering head.

Solid, fresh aroma of pine and citrus hops.

The beer has a quite fresh citrus hop flavor, backed by surprisingly moderate bitterness and balanced by a big, caramely and slightly bready maltiness. Otherwise clean, with few esters. Presents a medium-light body for a pleasant and appropriate mouthfeel. A well-balanced beer with excellent fresh hop flavor, making for a good session beer. Overall, a solid amber.
