3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours a dep reddish amber color with a small tan head that dissaptes leaving a little lacing on the sides. Interesting smell! malty almost oil like smell. Not much on the hop side when you taste it. I expected a little more hopiness and bite to it. Kinda dissapointed me as I just drank a 5 barrel ale from odell. But, this is a farily decent beer. Cheers!

This reminds me of Fat Tire but is much better. Malty feel early on and a fruity finish gives this a better feel that the NB version. The Odell beers have a very distinctive but common (accross the styles) taste...must be the hops.

Bottled, thanks Slothgar! Dark brown pour with a thin white head, candy and bread in the nose, sweet maltiness throughout. Nice mouthfeel. Good work!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Old Chicago in SD. Clear copper color with a huge frothy off-white head that lasted and had good lacing. Moderate balanced malt and hoppy aroma. Medium body. Medium balanced sweet bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. First beer from this brewer and it was better than my expectations.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle as a reddish-orange, with lingering off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma was slightly detectable hoppiness, but flavor was a perfect blend of hops and malts. Finish was very smooth, somewhat warming, and long lasting. I really enjoyed this beer.
