[keg, Friends of Ham, Leeds] Extremely excited about trying this, on arriving at FoH I asked how much was left, and the barman replied there was plenty. Drank a few alternatives, then chose the Footprint last, out dribbles less than a third of a pint. So, I got (for free), the last part of the only keg in Europe of Odell Footprint. Opaque golden amber, with a large white head, it had a lovely aroma of orange barley sugar, straw, pine and leather. On the taste, sweet, slightly honey-esque with caramel malt, before a lot of citrus fruit, and then on the finish a peppery, metallic edge before the alcohol arrives. To be honest, I didn’t get much chilli other than maybe as that spritzy copperyness. Still, a great beer – no idea what prickly pear tastes like so we can chalk that one off. I imagine it featured in the overall thought of the beer – which was slightly coppery honeysuckle. Only complaint I have is that I’d like to have had more [18052013]

The pour is a hazy, honey, golden color with a full, fluffy, white, head which settles to a thin, rocky layer and leaves soapy lace. The nose is grapefruit peel, mango, some resins, white pepper, slight toasty vanilla, and some rosemary. The flavor is similar with mango notes, light vanilla, spicy resins, grapefruit peel later in the progression, some leafy notes, and dry oak notes into the finish. The palate is lively, medium, drying slightly, warming, and velvety. The finish has dry oak, white grapefruit peel, white pepper, leafy notes, and a basil note?? Usually beers with so many adjuncts and multiple aging techniques do not result in a pleasant beer to drink, but this one was just that. All of the unique ingredients were complementary and supplemental rather the dominant or overbearing; the green chiles added minimal spice and heat, the prickly pear added nice fruit notes, and the honey added mild sweetness and dryness. I have seen references to a BGSA in other ratings and I can see the similarities but there are too many hop notes to make that a true story. A very pleasant beer to drink and a somewhat unique beer. Nice from Odell.

Honey colored pour, light head. Aroma is loaded with great malty notes, wheat, honey, funky fruit the background. Nice malty flavor, honey, sweet wheat notes, corn, oak notes. Pretty cool beer all the way around.

Damico (2355) - 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.

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.

750 c&c from Wine and Cheese in Clayton, MO. Fortunately a store that’s in the "Footprint". Pours hazy orange/amber with a creamy beige head. Lots of things in the nose. I can differentiate fruit, oak and pepper. Med + body. Flavor is fairly peppery. There’s some oak. It’s dry and astringent. The honey is almost missing. Think I might get a little grape. But prickly pear? Maybe that’s a fruit thing. There is fruit. A little different - seems a bit earthy - I’d put this into the saison/bier de garde territory. I’m likin’ it.

Bottle from a trade with cbkschubert. Pours slightly hazy orangish color with off white head. Doughy aroma with floral hops and tropical fruits. Pineapple and orange flavors with some bread dough, grapes, and a hint of oak. Medium body with lively carbonation. Very saison-like. I’m liking this one. Thanks Craig.

A really enjoyable beer. The grains are really noticeable and it gives it a great earthy malt flavor. Really nice going down.

stumpyiliz (212) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Pours a hazy yellow/amber, smells are all over the place from fruity ester to the prickly pear. Light hops are on the front of the taste with a full body spice bite afterwards. The barrel aging accents come through with the finish. This beer lingers for some time on the palate. A solid beer, good sipper and the booze is hidden well. Great concept, I imagine this will age well for years and give off other attributes due to the multiple barrel aging additions to the blend.

Terminus (3146) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - APR 11, 2012
750 ml bottle at a local high-class restauraunt-pours lightly hazy orane with a small fizzy white head. nose is wack-herbal hops, honey, vanilla, oak, light pepper. flavors of honey, lite hops, lite alcohol lite vanalla and lots of honey sweetness. THe finish has quite a bit of heat-i dont know about hte people saying this is easy drinking. It took me quite a while to finish this 750-definately felt/tasted the alcohol. THe finish is very intereesting-lots of wierd things going on. The cool thing about this beer, you can pretty much pick up all the given ingrediants in this brew in the flavors. Well done by Odell once again.
