2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Malty in the nose. Not much to say about this beer. Little less hoppy than a pale. Flavour is enjoyable, but nothing to write about.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2007 Finally rated. Odell’s flagship. Copper ale that is usually enjoyable. Brown Coppoer thin head. Light molasses nose and very light smoky bbq taste on medium malty body. Always a good fall back beer, but rather over-rated.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear amber body with a very small beige head. Generic malt caramel with almost no hop flavour. Medium sweetness. Medium carbonation. I really don’t have much else to say about it. This is a boring beer even by the style standard which is not exciting to start with. A little meaty (foie gras?) in the finish. Like the Shilling itself this beer should be retired.

bottle from Mondiale ’07.
dark ruby color, thin beige head, good lacing. Very nice malty aroma, and also hoppy aroma. Flavour is incredibly balanced. This isn’t spectacular, but a perfect session beer!

Poured a brownish color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, nuts, light chocolate, and roast as well. Taste of caramel malts, light chocolate, nuts, and light citrus as well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked this up at Hy-Vee, let it sit for a couple of months and poured it into an english pint. Has a hazy amber color with a 1 finger tan head. Floral hops immediate come out when pouring, followed by fresh grass and chocolate. Weak cohcolate milk (more milk than syrup), pine, light citrus, and a floral bitterness on the taste. Aftertaste of cereal malt, floral hops, and chocolate. A smooth medium palate and very light carbonation, almost as if it had been hand-drawn into the bottle. A delightful blend of sweet maltiness and light bitter hoppiness. The palate was easily my favorite part and really made this a great beer for me.

Bottle. Amberish copper color. Taste the malt right away, with a nice touch of hops. Sweet, caramel taste is there too. I was quite surprised by this one as I normally am so so with Scottish Ale.
