3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is about as English and ale as you can expect from a hop heavy brewer like Odell. Restraint is the order of the day with this beer. Floral aromas, mild grassy hops, and bready malts.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler from Odell’s. Appearance: golden-amber color, off-white head, good sized head, great lacing, a little cloudy. Aroma: citrus, floral, caramel, roast, resin. Palate: medium body, fizzy carbonation, somewhat thick texture, long bitter finish. Taste: sweet at start, smooth transition to hoppy bitterness for a second, then a really hoppy spike that is far from smooth, followed by a calm bitter finish. Overall, I like the beer excepting the weird hop spike halfway through the drink. Drinkable and refreshing, but not my favorite for style or for the brewery by any means.

Draft in a sampler at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with an eggshell white head that leaves some lace. Notes of citrus, straw, bready and toasty malts, and mild spice. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty, dry mouthfeel. Simple EPA.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery. Pour is golden orange with a big white head and great lacing. Bread, caramel, earthy hops, weed, and grain on the aroma. Taste is much better than the smell; caramel, light roast, citrus, lemon, and bread ending lightly bitter. Medium mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Odell. Clear blonde golden with a nice aroma of olde world hops, earthy maltiness, and a nice aged yeast. Flavor was much the same, with clean old world hop tones of grassiness, pale blonde malts, and mild bitterness throughout with a touch of dusty yeast.
