COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There are ten states that make up what we call our distribution footprint. Each state made a unique contribution to Footprint. This artful ale is our tribute to these states in which our beer is available. The result is a crafty collective of regional flavors:

Arizona – Prickly pear
Idaho – Barley and hops
Kansas – Wheat
Minnesota – Wild Rice
Missouri – Oak Barrels
Nebraska – Corn
New Mexico – Green Chiles
South Dakota – Barley and honey
Wyoming – wheat

50% ale brewed with honey, 10% ale brewed with honey and aged in wine barrels, 40% ale brewed with honey and natural flavors added

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine Scottsdale. Pours a hazy straw color with nice off-white head and plenty of carbonation. Aroma has resinous hops, florals citrus and a bit of wood. Taste is sweet malts with some honey sweetness and finishing bitterness. Medium bodied with a slick texture. The oak is noticeable and distinctly Odells in flavor. That is the same oakiness is found in several Odell?s beers. A nice idea from the brewer and one that I enjoyed more than their other offerings.

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Pours a pure honey gold with an expanding off white head. Abundant, consistent beading. Smells complex - spicy, the pear dominates. Very fresh. The taste is again defined by the prickly pear. Really a nice balance of what could have been a mess of a beer. Refreshing, approachable, delicious. Well done.

Trev (1962) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle: pour is hazy orange gold with a massive white head. Aroma is sweet, honey and biscuity malt, apricot/ peach fruitiness, floral. Good body, floral and honey on the front, crackery/biscuity malt, hints of nutty rice in there too. Strange minerally taste in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Damico (2682) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Pours amber orange with a white head. The aroma is light citrus zest with some viney hops. The flavors of orange citrus hops with some sweet and tang notes on a medium body.

Bacterial (1725) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Nose is fruity, a touch of citrus with some subtle vegetable notes. Deep golden color, almost no lacing and a thin white head. Taste is complex, starting with citrus, honey and then hoppy with a nice bitterness. Quite interesting! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

portableparty (1956) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy bright orange with a white soapy head that fades to spotty film. Aroma is grain fruit like oranges and rind and wine corks (wood) with faint caramel. Taste has a good bitterness and dry fruit of oranges and wood and I get faint wine characteristics. Palate is medium and drying with a chalky finish. This is a complex brew. Another bottle down the road may bring me back to this rating. Non the less this is very enjoying and the alcohol is very well hidden.

bigred22 (84) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 5, 2012
This was an extremely sweet beer, but definitely well balanced. Very fruity aroma, and yet it is a beer you could drink a whole bottle and still enjoy it at the end. I like unique beers and this one is just that

nickd717 (3573) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 3, 2012
750ml bottle thanks to Nick3. Cloudy yellowish golden in color with a lasting white head. Interesting aroma with sweet malt, floral notes, chile peppers, and honey. Flavor is a bit strange but not bad really. Rather sweet with honey and wheat, citrus, floral notes, and booze, with some vegetable notes. Medium-plus bodied with average carbonation. A strange brew. Not bad, but I wouldn’t want a lot of it.

notalush (4999) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Mostly clear gold - a fairly straightforward, clean and moderately sweet DIPA - flavors of vanilla and earthy hops, with a bit of coconut and a cool, minty character from the hops - very well-hidden alcohol - lingering vanilla - not bad - not sure what makes it worth 14 bucks a bottle.

alexanderj (3334) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAR 2, 2012
On tap; poured an amber-orange color; aroma of lemon, caramel, citrus and honey. Flavor had alot of lemon and honey; a touch of earthy hops in the finish. Some touches of bread and caramel. Somewhat of a hybrid and a good stuff.
