This one was fairly dark. Thick head. A good and satisfying brew. It’s pretty cool to because I read that Odells brews all their stuff traditionally, abiding by the purity laws.

S - Toasted grain, biscuty malt, acidic berries, toffee.
T - Toffe malt, roasted grain, berry sweetness, mint, herbal/citrus hops. Starts sweet and finishes dry.
M - Soft and creamy, moderate carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle into pint glass. Pours copper red with an average sized off-white frothy head. Head is fairly long lasting with good lacing. Beer is cloudy with just a bit of small particles. Nice balanced smell with both moderate bready malt smell and moderate grassy/citrusy hoppy smell. Initial taste is light sweet citrus that finishes moderately bitter. Finish is short; medium-bodied with a creamy/syrupy feel.

Ruby red pour wth a small head and low carbonation. Rich malty aroma with some dried prunes & berries and a few nuts. I was looking for a Scotch ale and this fit the bill, maybe not quite as full in taste and body as it could be. Decent.

Pint on tap. Dark copper color, medium-light carbonation, big bubbly head, becomes rocky, laces well. It’s served cold, thank god. Taste is slightly sweet at the beginning and a little bitter at the end. Gentle, toasty, and a little malty. Great beer for having a very light taste.

Flaska. Andra flaskan från Odell samma kväll. Andra flaskan från Odell samma kväll som är en stor besvikelse. Dofar fotsvett, kokta grönsaker, unket... och så kanske där finns en svag fruktighet upptill. Kanske, är inte alls säker. Smakar betydligt bättre. Till och med så att den är lite över okey, med bittermandel, gröna äpplen och en svag beska.

Bottle at home. Pours a medium copper with minimal head/lacing. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is malty with minimal bite of hops. Finish is easy with hints of fruit and spice on the tongue. Good beer.
