Caldera "Ashland Amber"
Caldera Brewing Company - Ashland, Oregon USA
Amber Ale (ABV 5.4%) (IBU 24)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.2/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a cloudy medium orange with a slight pink hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) off white frothy head that receded slowly, down to a thin cap with a large collar creating some good streaky lacing.

The aroma was moderately heavy of a biscuit malt, floral and cascade hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit) and a mild fruity ester (apple).

The taste was lightly malty sweet with a hint of caramel from the onset, becoming a light bitter sweet with a nice touch of hops and citrus towards the end. The flavor was somewhat short in duration with a light sweet grapefruit flavor left behind.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a light to medium carbonation.

Overall a tasty Amber Ale that was lightly fruity sweet with a nice hoppy feel and a great drinkability...
