COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally from Bavaria, Märzens were brewed during the cooler months, and then stored in a lager (cave or cellar) during the summer months. Woodcut No. 4, best described as a double Märzenbier, boasts a malty body with a clean, refined finish. Hints of toasted cedar, vanilla and almond are created by lagering the beer in new American Oak barrels. Each Woodcut offering is packaged and bottle conditioned in 750ml Champagne style bottles with a cork and cage finish. Once released, the recipe and label are retired making these beers truly limited-edition.
Odell Brewing will celebrate the release of Woodcut No. 4 on May 22, 2010 as one of many weeklong events honoring American Craft Beer Week.

Cloudy brown beer, good off white head. Semi soft and semi dry palate but with a carbonated sting. Soft creamy malt. Bags of vanilla oak. Subdued hop and minerals before a really nice soft semi dry finish. Another cracker from Odell, off the beaten track and a sumptuous tasty beer that hides it’s abv brilliantly.

A: The pour is a slightly hazy copper color with a fluffy white head and plenty of carbonation. S: Quite sweet with plenty of vanilla on the nose. There are plenty of sweet malt notes as well, namely caramel with lots of bread as well. A bit of alcohol as well, but not overly boozy. T: Thankfully, this is not as overwhelmingly oaky as some of the other Woodcuts are. As mentioned in the smell recap, the barrel character is up front and well represented: good vanilla and whiskey flavors, along with some oak. Quite a bit of booze, unfortunately, and the sweet caramel and bready malts don’t sufficiently mask that fact. M: A medium body, which is something I was worried about due to the lager factor. Plenty of carbonation as well. D: Overall, not a bad beer at all, but just too hot. I would let this one mellow out before opening a bottle of this.

daknole (9042) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2010
Cloudy orange pour with a fluffy off white head. Aroma is full of vanilla, toffee, dried apricots, toasted pecans, oak, yeast and raisins. Flavor is sweet, but not cloying. Lots dried fruits and nuts in the flavor with tons of vanilla, toffee, booze, oak...damn nice.

SirADNielsen (8963) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 2, 2011
Bottle @ Dan’s house. Beautiful, red-orange appearance with a fluffy, off white head. Lemon citrusy, woody, caramel malty, a touch spicy nose. A touch spicy, lightly citrusy, caramel/toffee malt driven flavor with notes of wood and various spices. Sweet toffee, caramel, slightly bitter aftertaste. This is an Imperial Märzen, so the current imperial pils category seems a little messed up.
