What a beautiful beer! Deliciously red, great lacy head, full body. Malty goodness with assertive hops. No hint of "watery, and syrupy sweet" as many reds can tend toward here at all. Right up there with Nosferatu as the best red I've had! Thanks Uncle Brian for the hook up!

Crystal clear amber ale. Light off white head. Mild pine and pineapple hop nose. Neutral palate, just about perfect! Very well balanced. Even malt and the hops are lively mix of grapefruit (not too bitter), pine and pineapple. Finishes minerally with a little carbonated sting. A fine fine Red Ale.
Has a super fresh hop and pine scent. Has a killer bitterness and roast flavor, must seek this out again.

I've never tasted a red goat before, I took this one by the goaty wrestled with it to the death and drank it down in one. A truly refreshing battle that I hope I get to fight again. Man 1 Goat 0

Bottle, Rehills, Ncl. Fresh and powerful caramel and hop aroma with toasted almonds in there too. Amazingly soft and fruity palate, more soft malt comes in and theres a dry bitter finish. Another fine Odell beer.

Bottle. Dark amber with an off white head. Nice aroma, pine, caramel, toffee, dried fruits, some tropical fruits hops as well and a little alcohol. Taste is quite similar, more malt driven than the aroma, some resinous pine, dried fruits, toffee and caramel. Full bodied with a clean finish. Very nice The_Bish (1118) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2012
Good one, better than their IPA. Refreshing hops, with a cloudy rust pour. Tasty. kjohns (131) - North Dakota, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Clear reddish-amber pour with thin off-white head. Nose is a very citrus piney hop blast. Taste is more balanced with a nice dose of citrus hops at the outset layered on top of a longer lasting light caramel and biscuit malt sweetness. Very tasty one here. berrya785 (441) - Kansas, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Aroma is citrus and pine. Pours a deep dark amber with a nice off white head. Taste is malty sweet and hoppy bitter. Good beer. peteinSD (1468) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Bottle from a generous BA trader - thanks! Pours a semi-hazy amber red with a small layer of tan foam. Aroma is sharp pine with some bitterness and minor citrus and a substantial malt backbone with some lingering sweetness. Taste is clean, balanced hop bitterness with pine leading into semi-sweet malt with raisin and caramel before giving way again to the pine and hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is clean and slightly coating. Hugely quaffable but with enough hop bite and malt presence to make the beer very engaging. I’m really impressed by this beer - excellent.
