COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

foyle (324) - Wyoming, USA - APR 12, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Appearance: pours a sudsy off white 2" head which recedes leaving mild lacing. Clear golden color with moderate streaming carbonation. Aroma: lightly toasted barley malt, yeasty bread dough, definite citrus hop note. Mouthfeel: light and fizzy with a drying finish. Flavor: sweet barley malt, lemon, citrus rind and white bread crust. Overall: a pleasant and easy drinking brew. Although a spring seasonal, I could see having this on a hot summer day. Quite refreshing.

brokensail (13598) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle @ Aaron’s Wedding Eve Shindig. Golden colored beer with white foam. Has a nice bit of grassy and leafy, floral hop character. A light piney bitterness along with some biscuity, bready malts. A touch of herbal hop character on the finish, too. Easy enough drinking, though a little more bitter than I’d like.

Keg cuckfield in wanstead. Pretty boring carbonated ale. No distinctive flavours. Probably doable 20 years ago.

weordie (365) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2015
Pours golden with a foamy head. Aroma is weak but has hints of lemon. Taste is also weak, some cereal and malt but not much. Watery palate. A rare miss from Odell.

fairwater (139) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2015
Keg @ Oakford Social Club. Very unimpressed; would hope that’s down to the bar not the brewer. Rather hazy pale gold, not much noticeable aroma, slightly soapy taste, maybe a bit of lemon.

bubbleflubber (2053) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Pours clear lemon-straw into the glass with a wispy head that leaves a thin ring of suds. The nose has a touch of grassiness, subdued. Flavors are cereal, lemon essence and a touch of grains, finishing with a light grassiness. Sparkling mouthfeel, active with a medium-light body. Well-balanced and perfect for summer, this is a session brew that gets the point across nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

justsayswell (179) - Mission, Kansas, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Very pale cear gold pour with a small white head. Not much in the nose-- cereal malt and very faint grassy hops. Light body, slightly soft. Mineral, somewhat yeasty. Mild hop bite mid to late palate. Tastes like an average pils. There are better choices for a session IPA.

I imagine Odell Loose Leaf is a divisive beer for drinkers that have jumped onto the hoppy session beer bandwagon. Drinking it gave me two minds. In one mind, I loved its balance and drinkability. In the other, I wanted more hops. We’ll address that struggle in time. First, appearance. Loose Leaf pours hazy yellow with a fluffy head. Aroma reveals biscuit malt and some earthy yeast. There’s a dank hop note in there, but it’s buried under the other smells. Now, the flavor dilemma. Loose Leaf’s smooth malt body is a show-stealer. The hops? Not as much. I like the mild tropical note from the hops and their grassy flavors. (Yes, there is a certain fresh, leafy taste.) On the whole, though, I wanted more from the hops. I get that this beer’s balance and refreshing taste would be enough to put some people on cloud 9, but what can I say? I love my hops.
