COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Special.
The guys at Odell Brewing Co., Fort Collins, Colorado, visited us last year as part of a whistle stop tour of various breweries up and down the country and were kind enough to invite us to have dinner with them that evening. As we sat and ate and drank, we talked about a lot of things, including baseball and cricket, but we mostly talked about beer. Fast forward a few months to the end of last year and we were delighted when Doug Odell, founding brewer of Odell Brewing Co., sent us an email asking if we’d like to brew a beer with him. A question that took a nanosecond to respond to… yes! Several months and various emails later, Doug joined us at the Brewery for a couple of days to finalise the recipe and brew the beer. The Accomplice is a pale ale as prepared for India that’s been brewed using six different varieties of hops, crammed into almost every possible part of the brewing process, to create intense floral and fruit aromas, backed up by a balanced level of bitterness. When we suggested the name to Doug, his response was, “It sounds kinda sinister… I like it!” So, there we have it, The Accomplice is currently fermenting away and will be available in cask for a limited period from the beginning of July. We hope you enjoy drinking it as much as we enjoyed brewing it!

Benzai (8065) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014
Clear orange color, medium sized off-white to beige colored head. Smell and taste malts, hops, decently bitter. Decent American pale ale, nothing special though. Decent, worth a try.

Tap at Mother Kelly's. Pours an orange light amber with a white head. Floral, perfumy aroma. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Light marmalade, pine, lemon, light soap, light toast, grapefruit, wood... It's OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale golden beer with a thick frothy head. Light, floral, hoppy aroma. The blend of hops makes for a tangy, airy flavour with the same floral feel as the scent. Aftertaste is tangy, with a slightly sour grapefruit edge at the back of the mouth. It’s tasty though. I could probably have gone it a bit cooler than I did. Rather nice.

2014-06-27. Dark orange body with a tiny off-white head that fades. Aroma is a bit strange at first, herbal/herbaceous hops, marmalade like orange citrus. Flavour is fairly bitter throughout, good amount of hops, hoppy greenery over top. Average bodied palate, low carbonation. Okay. On cask at Dry Gate, Glasgow
