Let me start by sharing what's on the side of the bottle: "For all you people who are afraid of beer you can't see through, this one is for you. This beer is yellow, fizzy, and clearly meant for washing dirt out of your mouth after mowing the lawn." I'm not even sure it's good for that. It's definitely yellow and fizzy, with no head to speak of, and zero lacing. It almost smells like a loaf of bread, and nearly tastes the same. It's very earthy and grainy with nary a hop to be found. Man, I love me some Caldera, but I would rather drink a Bud Light than this on a hot summer day. Sorry guys, but this beer gets an F.

Poured a very pale yellow. No head whatsoever. Some bready aroma, but very light. Very faint lemony flavor. Extremely light malt flavors that finished with a distinct light beer aftertaste.
This beer shoud've been labeled as a light beer. Shame on me for buying a lager with an ABV less than 4. Almost any mass produced light beer is better than this one. I even drank it after mowing my lawn. Should've had a tall glass of water.

A nice looking beer but it's a diacetyl bomb. Nothing worse than a buttery beer :( Bottle ID LAWN/993.

A remarkably undistinguished "lager" with a rather sour undertaste. Unpleasant, unrewarding to drink, and not deserving of your attention. Why bother?

Decent but unmemorable. Wouldn't buy again.

[Best served in a Lager glass]

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...

Very disappointing. A decent lager at best, but it’s supposed to be a premium lager. Cereal in aroma and taste, looks and feels like a mass market lager. Was hoping for something special.

Poured from a can "best by 02/06/17" to a Pilsner glass.
Foam Monster! Even pouring down the side of the glass, it foamed over with like a 4" head. It eventually laced the glass, but then dropped to a sad whisker-thin ring of white bubbles.
Sweet buttery hell, there is mild diacetyl in this, not a lot, but present in the nose. Of Course some may be due to the malt (only listed as two row). Hops are Willamette.
Taste is even sweeter and more buttery. Drinkable, but not something to buy again.

appearance: Wow very active beer with a haze through it. The white lace does stay on top forever it felt like.

Smell: Hoppy with needles. It really is a classic lager smell

Taste: Clean with off flavor on the back end that I just can't put my finger on it. someone help me with it....

mouthfeel is bad. It burns there is so much carbonation. I just can't do it. It honestly sent my taste-buds into shock on the first drink there was so much activity on my tongue.

I found myself wanting to rank it higher but it just wasn't there to get the higher rating.
