Bottle reads 4/26/11B

A= The pour is a beautiful deep amber color that is completely translucent. The head is rather small with a mixture of large soapy bubbles and tiny bubbles holding some steady retention and lacing.

S= The smell is a great combination of caramelly malts and spicy hops. It sort of reminds me of Summits extra pale ale if they used more of a west coast hop variety. The malt bill must be similar. The hops are more fruity and a little piney.

T= Excellent taste. Just what I was hoping for actually. A nice combination of sweet caramel malt and nice spicy hops. While most hoppy reds really blur the line between red and IPA this is a quality balance between the more malty reds and the super hoppy reds. Really nice biscuit character hidden a little deeper in there. Excellent beer.

M= Nice smooth carbonation that doesn't get out of hand.

D= Another home run from Odells. They may be becoming one of my favorite breweries quickly. These guys do awesome work. Worth checking out. I went into the liquor store today hoping to just find something drinkable and I got it. Awesome beer!

Odell Red Ale

Appearance: dark amber, medium head, and good lacing.

Smell: grapefruit citrus and hops.

Taste: rich malts, whole hops, and a hint of citrus.

Mouthfeel: medium and slightly malty.

Overall:
This is a nice brew. The balance is very good. I was surprised not to get a strong citrus flavor like the aroma suggested.

Crisp clear dark amber. Large head that laces the glass.

floral hops with a nice mellow hoppy sweetness

Very balanced beer. Starts out with a nice hoppy floral bite that fades into your caramel smooth amber malt flavors. Complex and very tasty.

nice amount of carbonation in a smooth yet bitter beer. They really have a nice balance between IPA and Amber ale here. I really like it.

A - Deep reddish-brown with a creamy off white head with great lacing.

S - Hoppy nose with a muted / piney background. Spice and citrus notes jump out at you. Aroma builds as it warms up.

T - This is a tasty red. The flavor of the hops kick like that of the better known Odell IPA, but balanced out by the malts. Slightly sweet and toasty on the finish.

M - Medium-bodied, with the right amount of carbonation. Great balance. Would love to try on tap.

D - Easy drinking. Just enough hops to keep me happy. If you'd like to try a delicious malty IPA, try one of these. My new favorite amber/red. Another outstanding job by Odells.
