Tap at Drunken Monkey. Pours light orange with an inch of white foam. Leaves a fair amount of lacing. Has a bit of floral on the nose. Nice floral hip notes on the tongue. Finishes clean. This one’s pretty solid.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A pretty light and usual beer. What you would expect in terms of hops and malts. Well balanced. Hoppy up front and at the finish with a smoother and sweeter middle.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma has citrus and pine, with a bit of bready malt. Pours amber-orange with a decent off white foam head, with good retention and lacing. Taste is where this one lets down. Some hop bitterness leads the way along with muted citrus. Floral hops. Nothing too strong. Light bodied and thin. Overall not Odell’s best attempt, but not horrible.

Bottle from Glug Newcastle. Very hoppy in flavour but not overwhelmingly so. An enjoyably fruity, floral hint too

Light amber with thin white head. Aromas of toffee apples. Taste medium sweet, light bitter and trace of sourness. Sustained carbonation. Very drinkable if slightly bland.
