Draft at BitterCreek. Nice looking beer, gentle hoppy aroma. Taste brings some caramel malts and butterscotch. Flavors bring it squarely into English style. Fast finish, almost had me , then it died on the palate.

Pours a dark golden with one finger head with heavy lacing. Prominent toasted hop aroma with some english hops going a more herbal, hoppy aroma. Mildly bitter. Medium bodied with soft to moderate carbonation. Short finish.

"Did seem more like a stronger bitter in its aroma and flavor than a pale or ipa. Spicy, lightly bitter, british leaning (not my thing) but solid for the style."

Draft sample at the brewery. Aroma is faint citrus and cereal. Taste is orange zest, lemongrass, grain, a bit of pepper. Light, easy drinking.

This is about as English and ale as you can expect from a hop heavy brewer like Odell. Restraint is the order of the day with this beer. Floral aromas, mild grassy hops, and bready malts.

Growler from Odells. Appearance: golden-amber color, off-white head, good sized head, great lacing, a little cloudy. Aroma: citrus, floral, caramel, roast, resin. Palate: medium body, fizzy carbonation, somewhat thick texture, long bitter finish. Taste: sweet at start, smooth transition to hoppy bitterness for a second, then a really hoppy spike that is far from smooth, followed by a calm bitter finish. Overall, I like the beer excepting the weird hop spike halfway through the drink. Drinkable and refreshing, but not my favorite for style or for the brewery by any means.

Draft in a sampler at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with an eggshell white head that leaves some lace. Notes of citrus, straw, bready and toasty malts, and mild spice. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty, dry mouthfeel. Simple EPA.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 On tap at Town Pump. Wow, super fresh aroma of citrus fruits, piney hops and toasty malts. Similar flavor, nicely balanced Pale, with a bitter dry finish. Way better than I remember.
