3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a copper colour with a limited head. Citrus, hops and malt on the nose. Flavors are a hop winning battle with the malts, but I did not find this brew to be crazy hoppy. Grapefruit on a apricot canvas. A good pale ale. Thanks to jhammerly for the bottle.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a see through brown/amber color with a small white head. Lots of carbonation, and good lacing. Aroma is light floral/citrus hops and malt. The taste has a very small amount of sweetness, a very small amount of bitterness, and a good deal of water. I’m not a big fan, nothing really stands out and there’s not enough complexity and flavor.

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.

Tap at FR. Muted fruity hop aroma. Hoppy for Odells I suppose(and that is what the bar tender said too)...some leafy-ness and toasty malt. Excellant lace. A good hoppy pale ale, but nothing more.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Total Wine. Clear, light orange-gold pour with a tall, fluffy, off-white head which fades to leave a moderate rim of lace. Nose is lightly malty and fruity with some hop hints. Medium-light body with medium carbonation that is fine and yields a creamy mouth feel. Light pine and citrus hops, caramel, toast, cereal. Finish is medium in length and a bit more on the earthy side while being lighter in the body.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Quite delicately hopped. Spicy with a notable floral aroma. I like it. So many bitters in England are desrcibed as having floral aromas but i generally get bread and stale flowers. This is sweet and fresh like rosewater. Well done.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber color. Pretty big white head. Crisp hop aroma and flavor, but very simple and one-dimensional. My second beer from O’dell and both have been very average.

Odell’s makes some of my favorite beers. There are a few breweries who never disappoint. Odells has been one of those for me.Nice head out of the bottle. Sweet, golden color, faint hop/malt tastes. Very refreshing beer. Very good beer.
