3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, from Lukas Liquors in Missouri, purchased during my stay for RBSG. Bottle reads 5/16/14B. Purchased this less than a week ago, but unfortunately I think thatís a best-by date. Amber color, made hazy by lots of thicker chunks of yeast. Khaki head. Leaves good reaches of lace. Medium, kind of more full body. Smooth, kind of crisp carbonation. Light slick texture. Good toasty, lightly spicy, caramel malt profile. Light earthy hop balances out the taste. Moderate bitter taste (more bitter than your typical scottish). Lighter sweet. Solid, tasty hoppier scottish. Good assertive taste to it. Nice to enjoy with my sandwich, although at times the flavor of the beer didnít stand up between bites.

Sweet malts and bread in the aroma. Taste has a cloying sweetness that I donít care much for.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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, itís less than Iíd 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!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
