6/25/2011 - Summer is putting its foot in the door here in Colorado, sweating and heaving with awkward heat. The rest of us emulate summer, panting and clamoring for panaceas to the heat. It's time to put away the stouts and porters for good and find some lighter brews. Today's cooling agent is the O'Dell Double Pilsener. I've been slowly consuming my four-pack since May, but I'm finding it's just as much a Spring beer as it is a Summer beer. This dandelion yellow beer takes on a beautifully chilled haze, and beckons for the drinker to share in it's thermal alms. Before I indulge (desperately and greedily, with beads of sweat racing across my face) I take in the aroma - a fresh and balanced pilsener aroma with corn and fresh cashews, and not too dry. The taste is refreshing, cooling and engaging - it's a light flavor objectively, but a relatively intense pilsener, packed with flavor. O'Dell's Double Pilsener doesn't rely on alcohol to mask clumsy flavors. It's open and honest, packed with pilsener goodness, and perhaps the closest I'll come to the flavors of a fresh Pilsener Urquell. Roasted corn, dandelion petals, and a superbly executed bitterness all make the O'Dell Double Pilsener a beer worth splurging on, and a fine brew for a late summer afternoon where the winds are as lazy as us, the awkward guests to an burdensomely hot summer day.
