Deep red/brown colour, with a very thin off white head. Aroma is floral hops and sweet, toffee malt. Flavour is sweet with a short bitterness and duration. Texture is a little thin and the body a bit light. Good beer. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 9, 2013
355 ml bottle. C. BB 6/20/13. Darkish red colour with a tiny frothy off-white head.
Fruity hoppy aroma with some notes of sweetness and berries. Not bad.
The flavour is berry and fruity hops, mild bitterness and quite dry maltiness. Decent American Red Ale. Not my favourite style though.

Honey color. Nice malt sweetness is present that isn’t overmuch. Some hop expression ads depth but more in the way of a solid, well constructed beer, not overly exciting. ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 1, 2013
12 Oz bottle from Baggot St Wines. Brilliant ruby red with thick frothy white head, nice lacing too. Caramel, toffee, dates, grapefruit, orange and a hint of nuts in the aroma. Wow. Luscious caramel, toasted nuts and toffee up front in the flavour, backed by resinous, bright fresh fruity hops. Lush, smooth, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Little carbonation. Finish is nicely bittersweet. God I love Odell. FatPhil (15966) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 1, 2013

Looks nice - a nice rich red, tight to frothy persistent head. Rich toffee caramel, some sweet fleshy fruits, and a bit of zest. Sweet caramelly and slightly yeasty retronasals. Dull sweet caramelly body, rather too sweet. Carbonation barely cuts through that. Some almost marmiteyness in the finish. Did smell better than their 5 barrels, but apart from that was a bit inferior everywhere.
12oz bottle at Probus Wines, Dublin. Deep, murky, russet red pour with thin off-white head. Aroma gives thick pine resin, lots of caramel, and a light nuttiness. Taste brings mouth-coating pine resin, some grapefruit, lots of deep sweet caramel, some woody notes. Plenty of piney bitterness - pretty assertive. Medium/full mouthfeel. Lingering pine resin and caramel in the aftertaste. A tasty, hoppy and hard-hitting American Amber. Coyler (112) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 30, 2013
Flavourful aroma of malts and fruits, lovely dark red colour with nice foamy head. So far so good.
Full on flavours of malts, caramel and toasted nuts. Awesome body, smooth mouthfeel with a long bitter finish. Very enjoyable. VastActiv (6942) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 26, 2013

33 cl bottle @ O’hara’s Freehouse, BBE 20.06.2013VictorStr (1740) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2013
Rather nice aroma with fruits, resiny hops and some vanilla. Flavour is somewhat sweet with resin, hops, some fruity notes, caramel and hints of pine needles. Finishes with gooseberry bush. Distant woody notes and hints of berries in the middle of the glass. Refreshing and nice, feels slightly watery on some sips though.
Brun kropp. Rätt dov i aroman. Lite humle, beska och en viss sötma. Väldgit väl balanserad. Lite vattnig och mjölig i eftersmaken.
