COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Levity was named by our brewers to reflect the lightness of color in this highly drinkable golden amber ale. Extremely refreshing, this is a mild, crisp, hoppy pleasure to consume.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2007 The favorite of my Fort Collins buddies due to itís ease of drinkability. Not my favortie offering by Odell though. Pours a light amber color and goes down very smooth. This is a good alternative to a BMC. Itís better on the nitro tap at the brewery.

Notes from my recent Denver trip: Light amber pour, no head. Nose is vague grain. Bittersweet. Middle is more roasted grain. Finish is lightly sweet. OK.

From a bottle. Golden brown with a thin white head. Sweet, caramel and brown sugar aromas. Sweet with apple flavor with some nuttiness. Medium body, but light tasting and refreshing.

August 7th, 2013 - Levity is a staple around Colorado - itís that go-to brew for board game night when everyoneís too lazy to drive to their favorite liquor vendor, but walking is still an option. Most corner stores have this, or something like this, which means it is often brought to parties and bundled up with fruits and vegetables on grocery runs. Drinking this straight from the bottle, Iím blind to the color and head, but the smell from the bottleís neck is deep with maple syrup, caramelized carrots and sugary sweet potato ooze. I often give the amber style a hard time because they tend to be boring, but this is a deep, gripping taste. Sugars are dominant, but theyíre not too candied. Instead , thereís plenty of almond, roasted carrots, and more of that sweet caramelized sweet potato. A little warmth adds another sugar layer, and it begins to be a little too sweet for me, but I have to acknowledge that given the style, this brew packs a lot of flavor.

NachlamSie (2963) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 24, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Chambers Liquor Mart. Best before April 9, 2015. Pours amber, a little on the lighter side of the style. Itís nice and clear with a bubbly white head. The aroma is crisp, grassy, sweet and balanced. Hops are more piney than anything. As I expected, this is very clean and devoid of any off flavors. The malt is a little sweeter than I thought, but not sticky like Fat Tire can get. Itís very enjoyable for 12 oz. worth. Multiple bottles may get a little sugary for my taste. Thereís a reasonably biscuity flavor with a suggestion of light honey. No assertive bitterness is noticed. The finish is quick and balanced. Itís not aggressive, but rather a smooth, sessionable amber ale. Pretty nice.

This is one of those odd beers for classification. The first few sips establish a solid ale, but then it begins to sweeten on the tongue -- and this sweetness tinges the subsequent swallows.

bottle from Hazelís beverage world. pours amber with a thin white head. leaves a little bit of lacing. not much on the nose. A bit of citrus on the tongue with a hint of malt on the finish. Boring but at least itís competently made.

Not a standout in style, which happens less than usual where Odell is concerned. Nutty malt base and light citruc hops. Just ok.

gegwilson (2102) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle from the Bottle Shop in Lancaster. Pours amber with a foamy cream head. This is a pretty run of the mill beer, which is disappointing considering itís from a decent brewer. Thereís some caramel malt notes and crisp citrus from the hops. Nice but unspectacular.
