3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Sampled at The Rover, Göteborg.
Golden colour, slight hazy. Big hoppy nose with hints of diacetyl. Fruity flavour, smooth body. Bit dry and pale malty. Hops are there from start to finish. Good but not overwhelming.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 Very very thick and yellowed head. It was off a good pour and the head was an inch at least, lasting about 7 minutes. It’s honey colored, and feels light on the tongue. The taste was more bitter than I expected, being a huge fan of Odells 90 Shilling, although there was a slight hint of sweet towards the end.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2006 12oz bottle acquired in trade with beerhandy (thanks!). Poured a medium and slightly cloudy amber color with a larger sized off white head. Fresh hop aromas dominate (flowers and oranges) with some toasted malts. Tastes of oranges, caramel, and flowers. Tastes all on the lighter side compared to the aroma. With the strong hop aroma, I was expecting more (but this is an English Pale Ale). This was quite drinkable though. Body on the thinner side.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’ve been drinking this since it came out, and forgot to rate it. Yellow. Mild hop aroma. Taste of mild sweet malts and a fairly dominant hop presence. This has become widely available in town, which is great because it’s got way more hops that most of the garbage your average bar serves on tap. Nothing amazing, but a solid brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2007 Dark orange body with a hint of haze. The dense head is slightly off white with some yellowish tint. The aroma is rich with orange soda and some caramel. The taste has some heavy handed toffee with some sweet orages and a little bit of black pepper spice in the finish. I love the balance and unique taste in this one. It has more character than other English style pale ales I have had, without going for over the top hops. Nicely done, Odell has a couple of very nicely made beers, I want to try more than what I can get in Kansas.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from bottle. Pours hazy golden-copper with a thin, light tan head. Aroma is spicey/piney hops and some sweet malt. Flavor is nicely bitter with toasted & caramel malts. Flavor hops a bit too resinous. Medium-bodied with pine resin in the finish. I’d rather have a Boulevard Pale Ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The bottle poured a slightly hazy amber colored beverage with an ample white frothy head that was mostly lasting and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was full of malt presenting notes of straw and some slight presence of citrus peel, possibly grapefruit. The body was light to medium with lively carbonation and a watery texture. The flavor started off somewhat Acidic and bitter reminiscent of grapefruit peel. The bitterness lasted throughout and the finish was long and slightly astringent.
