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.

JohnRMurdoch (3325) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 25, 2014
12oz bottle from Drygate. Yellow, not much head. Vegetable grain aroma and flavour. Resin aftertaste. A bit watery and disappointing for an Odell beer.

olio (6307) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2014
355 ml bottle.
Pours pale golden color with a medium sized frothy head. Very nice floral and slightly herbal hoppy aroma, lots of grass add up to a very refreshing crisp hop profile. Lots of citrus on the flavor, very light palate, grassy, bitter and grassy. Nothing special here, probably the herbs are a bit of an nuance. Crisp and refreshing.

Idiosynkrasie (3942) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2014
355ml bottle. Barely clear, yellowish, pale golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting and lacing, white head. Grassy, minimally citrusy hoppy aroma, some lemon, biscuity, pale malty basis, a cautious floral yeasty touch. Taste is minimally sweet pale malty, grassy hoppy overtones, a lemon touch, lemon biscuit; soft, silk palate. More than just sessionable - quite watery.

allmyvinyl (3695) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2014
355ml bottle from Cornelius. Pours clear pale gold, thin white head. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon, grassy, and a light malt backbone. Taste doesn’t live up to it though, bit thin and watery. OK.

Danyel (878) - Colorado, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours light , clear orange with white head. Aroma is very grapefruit, lemon, pine, earthy, very hop forward. Taste is light bodied, crisp, easy, bitter finish. Good but lacking any complexity, very one dimensional.

DiarmaidBHK (3467) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle from Hazel’s beverage world. Pours yellow with a thin white head. doesn’t leave much lacing. not much on the nose or tongue. Kind of watery. It’s disappointing considering the reputation of the brewery.

ciaranc (930) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 2, 2014
Ah, a new Odell, been too long. Bottle from Redmonds. Bright clear blonde, loads of bubbles, big white head, froths away pretty quick. Nose is a nice grainy malt, lemon zest. Flavour is light, sweet malt, more citrus notes, bready sweetness at the end. Light body, very light indeed. Fizzy, lemon sweet in the finish. A bit ornery, boo

jamestulloch (1462) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle from Cornelius. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of orange, mandarin and lime jelly. Fairly plain flavour of straw and muted citrus. Medium body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft fizz. Perfectly sessionable, but not very memorable.
