COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional British style pale ale brew exclusively for the Town Pump. The smallest and oldest bar in Ft. Collins. Dry hopped with Centennial whole flower hops, the floral aromas are unmistakable which makes it very drinkable.

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.

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.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 On tap at Town Pump. Wow, super fresh aroma of citrus fruits, piney hops and toasty malts. Similar flavor, nicely balanced Pale, with a bitter dry finish. Way better than I remember.

Tap sample at the brewery. Clear deep golden/light copper color with a small white head. Piney and earthy hops aroma, clean malt and orange peel. Medium-hi bitterness, juicy hop flavors, light marmalade. Slightly over carbonated, medium body, balanced and quite OK.

On tap at the brewery GABF 2012. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A sweet grainy nose with some floral hops. A bitter flavor throughout with pine and floral hops, big earthy grains. Decent.

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.

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.
