Poured from bottle to glass. Copper hue with off white head. Aroma is roasted malt, honey, caramel, slight metallic. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and soft zesty carbonation. Taste is malt sweet initially with a spicy bitterness and CO2 sharpness to round it out. Overall this is a decent brew.

Pours a dark copper with well-retained but light head.
Nose is light hops and sweet malts.
Like a true American Amber this brew balances well with sweet malts and bitter hop character. Always a favorite from O'Dell. Finishes malty and pleasant.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2014 A fresh, cold 12 oz. bottle, with a date on it. A nice amount of blue smoke upon popping the cap. Pour hard to achieve a decent, short-lived frothy head, bordering creamy that fades fast. It is a burnt orange, copper color, with nice carbonation early on. It is not clear, but not cloudy either. It smells very malty, and a bit metallic. It has little floral or hop aroma. It tastes light to medium bodied, and well carbonated. The malt aroma comes through on the taste, but it is not sweet. It goes down crisp, and easy, with little aftertaste. An easy drinking brew that would pair well with food. For a flagship brew, it’s less than I’d hope for, especially from Odell, but for a good, crisp summer drink it is refreshing. It deserves a decent rating. As a final thought, the tax man can screw off, leave me the hell alone!

12oz bottle pours with a clear deep copper body that supports a semi weak tan head of foam. The aroma offers up dark malt sugars, some brown sugar and molasses as well as thin layers of prune like fruity esters and faint spiciness. The taste starts with malt sweetness leading into sweet caramel malts and a brown sugar note. To midway a mild prune like sweet fruity esters join in and takes this into the finish. For a moment here and there are minerals and spicy hops. Pretty nice.

330ml bottle served cellar cool in a chalice at home. Clear Amber body, dense white head. Toffee aroma. Earthy caramel flavour, creamy mouthfeel. Felt a little bit decadent to be honest, Punching above its weight.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear copper amber with a robust two-finger cream colored head that dissipated slowly to a solid film and left very nice lace. Bready malt aromas with caramel and toffee notes and a hint of yeast. Caramel malt sweetness dominates the flavor profile with a slight earthy hop bitterness. Medium body, minimal carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a lingering malt sweetness in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
I get an almost meaty quality in the first whiffs. Earthiness, and suggestions of smoke. A clear deep copper pour with an off-white head and minimal lacing. The taste is malt forward - toasted malts, lightly roasted nuts, smoke, and caramel with a slightly bitter dry finish. Medium-low body and moderate carbonation. Overall, a nicely crafted Scottish Ale. Would drink again.
