SS. Pours a opaque reddish color with a white head. Aroma is mostly caramel and citrus. Hints of citrus fruits, malt, little hop, some floral notes. Finishes with a medium bodied malty citrus tang on the tongue.

12 oz bottle pours a clear copper body with small khaki head that deposits attractive clingy lace. Aroma of toffee, red apples and oranges. Very tasty profile! Malty toffee mingles with the fruity hops to prduce an exquisite balance. Very nice.

Bottle. Tasted from a chilled pint glass. Nice amber color. Off-white, creamy thick head. Kinda sweet tasting amber ale, hint of bitter hoppiness to balance the sweet Caramel taste. Not bad.

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.

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...

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.
