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.

Amber pour with a medium beige head, decent lacing. A pretty good mix of spices and hops. Average.

Pours beautiful ruby with small tan head that quickly diminishes. Mild apple and pear notes in the nose mixed with a sharp almost pine note. Flavor is well balanced, leaning toward sweet, smoky malts. Alcohol speeds the mild, peaty finish. Decent.

One of the good things I have to say about this beer is that the O’Dells rep gave me a bottle for free when I was loading up for the weekend at Liquormart last Friday afternoon. Light brown color, quickly diminishing head. Kind of a wood-scented aroma. Light carbonation, light body, slightly bitter finish.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2006 This was probably my first declared "favorite" beer. Darker amber. Maybe a bit over carbonated. They have a cask conditioned on tap sometimes. The lower carbonation really opens up the flavors. Wood and smoke, sap even (?) I really like it. Pork or pizza.

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.

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - MAR 3, 2011
Pours a rich amber with a medium white head and some lacing. Aroma is sweet with hints of citrus, hops, caramel, and brown sugar. Flavor is mild grassy hops, grains, caramel, brown sugar, wood, and malt with a bitter finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation and quite smooth. Not bad.

Rich chocolate character. Subtle hops. Good malt flavor. Solid winter brew in terms of mellow flavor and nice spice and hops

Stanley’s Beer Fest 10/6, BOTTLE. Light brown/amber pour. Aroma of caramel, bread, and dark fruit. Well balanced.

Enjoyed at Old Chicago as part of mini tour. A nice bit of bitter and rather toasty. Works ok but not worth another.
