August 7th, 2013 - Levity is a staple around Colorado - it’s that go-to brew for board game night when everyone’s too lazy to drive to their favorite liquor vendor, but walking is still an option. Most corner stores have this, or something like this, which means it is often brought to parties and bundled up with fruits and vegetables on grocery runs. Drinking this straight from the bottle, I’m blind to the color and head, but the smell from the bottle’s neck is deep with maple syrup, caramelized carrots and sugary sweet potato ooze. I often give the amber style a hard time because they tend to be boring, but this is a deep, gripping taste. Sugars are dominant, but they’re not too candied. Instead , there’s plenty of almond, roasted carrots, and more of that sweet caramelized sweet potato. A little warmth adds another sugar layer, and it begins to be a little too sweet for me, but I have to acknowledge that given the style, this brew packs a lot of flavor.

12 oz. bottle from Chambers Liquor Mart. Best before April 9, 2015. Pours amber, a little on the lighter side of the style. It’s nice and clear with a bubbly white head. The aroma is crisp, grassy, sweet and balanced. Hops are more piney than anything. As I expected, this is very clean and devoid of any off flavors. The malt is a little sweeter than I thought, but not sticky like Fat Tire can get. It’s very enjoyable for 12 oz. worth. Multiple bottles may get a little sugary for my taste. There’s a reasonably biscuity flavor with a suggestion of light honey. No assertive bitterness is noticed. The finish is quick and balanced. It’s not aggressive, but rather a smooth, sessionable amber ale. Pretty nice. JCLNoCo (5) - - JAN 3, 2015 does not count
This is one of those odd beers for classification. The first few sips establish a solid ale, but then it begins to sweeten on the tongue -- and this sweetness tinges the subsequent swallows. DiarmaidBHK (6151) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2014
bottle from Hazel’s beverage world. pours amber with a thin white head. leaves a little bit of lacing. not much on the nose. A bit of citrus on the tongue with a hint of malt on the finish. Boring but at least it’s competently made.

Not a standout in style, which happens less than usual where Odell is concerned. Nutty malt base and light citruc hops. Just ok. gegwilson (3827) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle from the Bottle Shop in Lancaster. Pours amber with a foamy cream head. This is a pretty run of the mill beer, which is disappointing considering it’s from a decent brewer. There’s some caramel malt notes and crisp citrus from the hops. Nice but unspectacular. Garrold (5852) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle from StarmoreBoss, shared with Button at Market Rasen races, yesterday. Biscuit sweet. Light caramel. Floral honey. Found this a bit me dimensional. Not my thing. Hanoi (982) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2014
Nose is caramel, honey, malt. Taste is caramel, honey, a little pear drop; mouthfeel is short. The mouthful is really, appealing silky and rich. It’s a very nice slightly too sweet amber ale. Concealer (1281) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber with an off white head that lasts. Aromas of caramel, light grass, spice and citrus. Flavor is caramel, light biscuit, and citrus. Light bodied, crisp finish.
