Pours brown with a mild malt aroma. Taste is a bit nutty and earthy, but overall there just isnít much going on here. Not flavorful enough to be a solid winter warmer for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
appearance: very clear copper color with a beige head, the head pours pretty big but settles into a smaller head that retains nicely
aroma: caramel, malty, honey, butter, pretty sweet, grapes even
taste: strong malt throughout, some hop bitterness is in there too, kind of sweet and very smooth
palate: lots of froth which i wasnít expecting but I like, average carbonation, slight bitter aftertaste
overall: awesome mouthfeel on this one, Iím impressed with the execution of this style (malty), would be a good session beer

On tap at Old Chicago as part of a mini tour. I like that they avoided spices. Still, it was a bit raw.

Tap at the brewery. Pours a light golden amber with a nice off white head. Aromas of caramel, malt, and a bit of fruitiness. Flavors are sweet malt, fruits, and a decent hop finish. Medium bodied. I used to really like this beer, but either I or the beer have changed.

Probably my least favorite Odellís brew. Not a lot going on for me. Amber color, slight caramel. Not enough hops for my liking.

Very floral, malty. Some spicy notes to it. Very smooth. The floral notes made it a little unusual as a winter beer (in my opinion). Was very malt-forward, however, without being syrupy. Bit of subdued yeast and some citrus in the aftertaste.
