Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Pours with an orange-amber body topped by a thick head with a good amount of lacing left on the glass. It’s sweet and malty with light toffee notes and a hint of grain. Medium bodied and smooth.

hero12 (184) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Poured a glowing orange color with a very large, off white head. Some what of a wheat beer smell. Slightly bitter malt taste with extremely subtle hints of chocolate. Medium body, somewhat flat carbonation, and a long finish. Very simple, drinkable beer.

Brown/amber pour. Big offwhite head. Aroma is toffee and light hops. Flavor has some caramel, hops and cardboard. Finishes weak. Not so memorable.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - JAN 15, 2010
Nice reddish color with a soft carbonated head. Pine, earthy sharp fruit notes in the aroma. Plethora of flavors, dark fruits, malty, spices almost like eating a fruit cake but better. Soft and dry but somewhat creamy. Finishes tangy and dry with a liitle hop bite. give me more.

sandberglar (148) - Scottsdale, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Pours a dark reddish brown, with white head that goes quickly. Medium Sweet with a light bitter finish. A nice easy to drink beer, but not at the level of other Odell offerings.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - DEC 17, 2009
12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a hazy deep amber color with a one finger thick off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is a dusty peat malt. Flavor is lightly sweetened malt and light herbal hops. Medium body. A decent beer.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2009
Pours a deep amber color with a very small reamy white head which did not hang around very long. There really isn’t much in the way of aroma. Smells of bread and perhaps a touch of alcohol. There really wasn’t much in the way of flavor. It was served so cold I couldn’t really pick much up. Will need to revisit this beer at a later time. What I did pick up on was all rather light with very mild flavors of nuts and toffee. Really not much else going on here. Overall, this isn’t really anything too exciting. Very middle of the road for craft beer.

(draft). Clear amber color. Small off white head. Light malt aroma. Roasted malt flavor. Avg duration. Smooth finish. Thin texture. Moderate carbonation. Fair lacing.

yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Pours amber with off-white head that is generous in size and retains rather well. Nose is soft with some toasty aromas and light caramel. Easygoing and appetizing aroma. More caramel and toasty flavors on the palate with less than average hopping for a winter warmer. Light to medium bodied and very, very drinkable.
