You know those epic days that start with an idea, turn into a dare and end with a great story to tell? This is the beer for those days. Crisp and refreshing like any respectable session ale, but a bit more hop-forward and flavorful than some. Perfect for going with the flow.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2016 Can from mail order from France44.com. Date stamped 9/22/2016 so evidently 4 months old. A: Pale gold pour with a finger of tight white foam. Good retention. Busy bubbles and nice lacing. S: Pils malt cracker scent. Mild grass or herb. T: Tastes sort of pils-esque too. A floral hop note along with sour bread dough. Some bitter lemon pith in the finish. M: Light crisp and refreshing. Short doughy finish. O: Nice light session ale with more similarity to a hoppy pils than a SIPA. Worth trying.

Can bought at the brewery during my trip to Denver. Odell Loose Lead Session Ale 4.5% A bright crystal clear gold with a fizzy white head. The aroma is quite an interesting mix of fruity (peach fuzz) and earthy minty pine. The flavor is similar but itís joined by a dose of rustic breadiness. A pretty decent beer and Iíve gotta say I love Odellís labels but this is the weakest of their beers I brought back to Japan. Just a buck fifty though so no biggy.

Can in a SHED, rare rating method!
Pours a real pale yellow w/ a medium fluffy white head & good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is lightly fruity, & floral with a lot of dough and lightly husky malt.
The flavor is malty & lightly sweet with a touch of honey & citrus. This is fine

This calls itself a "crisp" beer...well, thatís the perfect description for it. A very drinkable beer with a little hop flavor not too much just the perfect amount! This stuff was much better than I thought after the first sip! A winner!

Oddly lager-like, this one. Simple sweet malty flavors with a little citrus, mild bitterness, slight funky. Not bad, I guess.

Bottle from Beer52, a Christmas gift from Jill. Thanks! Blond with a thin white head. Mild hoppy aroma. The taste is light spice and pine hop. Slight metallic notes. OK.

Hazy golden with a thin white head. Aroma is earthy, a slight hint of skunk (still a month ítil best-by date). Light bodied, malty, and fairly mild hops presence. Okay.

On tap Odell Brewer on Colorado trip 2013. Pours a clear honey orange with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit and tea-like aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel.
