COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available each winter from the first of November until it runs out, Isolation ale is amber in color, malty and strong. We consider it a traditional winter warmer, without the addition of fruits or spices.

Pours reddish copper with a light tan head. The aroma has sweet caramel malt with fruit-like sweetness and a touch of brown sugar. Medium crisp body with some frothy carbonation. The taste starts with much of what was on the aroma with the finish having a bit of hop spiciness. A solid beer.

Little head, unique flavor that startles at first, but does grow on me a little. Fruit flavor ending with a malty bitter aftertaste. Decent beer. Not as good as some other O’Dell’s.

FlyingSwine (174) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2008 Pours a hazy amber color with little head. Malt and caramel aroma. Well balanced, malty, bitter flavor that is light on hops. Little to no carbonation gives this a creamy texture. Reminds me of a quality strong ESB. Overall a well crafted brew.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2008 Bottle. Cloudy reddish-amber. Good-sized white head. Citrus aroma with a hint of baked goods. Nice hoppy flavor. Sweet with a bit of a bite. Tasty ale.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Pours a pretty, deep copper with a thin, creamy, beige head. Simple and fairly muted, the aroma is a front of toasted malt and a supporting note of earthy hops. Light to medium-bodied and slick with a dry and slightly astringent finish. Toasted, nutty malt and earthy hops are about all I’m able to pull from the flavor on this beer. It’s simple but well constructed and quite drinkable; another solid, quaffable brew from Odell Brewing.

Aroma somewhat light,reminded me of a tea with a ginger stick it it, taste wa a rather harsh malty sweetness, no ginger in taste, hints of caramel, harshness probaly from hops,touch of alcohol,thanks KP

skoisirius (1718) - Earth, Washington, USA - DEC 6, 2007
12 oz bottle. Slightly malty and spiced aroma. Body mainly malty sweet with an English Strong Ale hop bite towards the end tossed with spice. Interesting the add nothing to this, yet the spice note is there. Decent, but fairly one dimensional.

natedoggkc (164) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Pours medium brown with a nice head. The aroma is quite sweet with some apple and spices. Definately some apple, a little spice, some citrus, and a touch of hops at the end. I enjoyed this beer last year but wasn’t that impressed this time around.

The featured "beer of the month" in an airport restaurant in Denver, shared with my wife while eating burgers. Nicely malty, semi-sweet, with a subtle spiciness (ginger, nutmeg) in the finish. Very nice.

RSRIZZO (1868) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Had this beer on 12/3/2002. Color is a hazy amber with a good head. Aroma is a mild malt scent. Taste is light and fresh. Starting with a light to medium body that goes down crisp. Finish is a mild malt flavor with a fair hop bitterness on the end. Its not a very rich or bold winter brew but it is a nice drinkable brew.
