2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
For whatever reason, I bought this in a make your own six pack sometime last year. Opened it today for no reason. And all that no reason, whatever reason transfers to the beer. Pretty basic. Nothing special for a scotch ale, though not a favorite style, or anything else this might claim to be. Not my top Odell.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2008 On tap. Poured a nice deep amber color with a decent off-white head that left good lacing. Aroma of sweet smoke and nuts. Nice, interesting taste that is dominated by a smoked peat flavor with nice nuttiness and a bit of roastiness in the finish. Smooth and easy to drink. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Faint aroma of caramel apple. Nice amber in color with a thick, rocky head. Lots of munich malts mingle with light caramel, a pinch of chocolate and a nice beat of peat smokiness. Some English hoppiness mixes with the toffee. Rather meaty yet quaffable. I rather like it. Thanks Brad.

Tap @ Steamboat. Nothing really special in the glass. If you had 100 beers at a tasting, this is one you’d surely forget. Scottish Ale? American amber. Caramel color with a short-lived head. Taste is a very modest amout of malt and hops. Finish is short and dry. Much better out there.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice brown color, moderate off-white head. Aroma is primarily malty and yeasty. Flavor is smooth malts...some hops in the background give it the necessary amount of bitterness to make it balanced. Moderate to high level of carbonation and very easy to drink. This beer may well be in the top 5 sessionable beers out there...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle from BeerandBlues2
The pour is copper brown with a decent white head and some lacing.
The aroma is clean toasted malts, with a bit of earthy herbal hops.
The malt flavor is toasted, buttery, smokey, and a tad sweet. Long bitter finish.
Medium/light body. High carbonation. Dry finish.
Easy to drink. Good beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice looking copper-amber color, thin head, lots of lacing. Citrus and malt aroma. Very well balanced with some sweet malts, a bit of caramel and enough hops to add just a hint of bitterness. I enjoyed this on draught in Denver and brought a sixer back home with me. Another winner from Odell.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Had this beer on 1/22/1998. Color is medium golden brown, carbination is low with little head. Aroma has a sugary sweet smell that reminds me a little of wine. Taste is smooth but a little watery. It starts off crisp with a light body and sweet flavor. finish is clean with no hop taste at all. I remember this beer being better than this, the bottling date on this bottle is 10/01/97 making it almost four months old which may be the reason this one is not as good as I remember.

Good head and good deep tan color. Aroma yeasty with almost a floral scent. Flavor good hops, citrusy with a slight toast. Well rounded on the palate. This was good with sirloin and steamed vegetables.
