Odell Red: I am a big Odell fan, and this seasonal does not disappoint. The body is a deep leather red in color. There is no haze, but it is dark enough that it is hard to see through. A big off-white head forms on top, and leaves a nice lacing during your drinking experience. The Red provides a big aroma as well, with lots of flowery hop notes. There is a firm malt base to the flavor, and a big hoppy finish. This beer is closer to an IPA than a traditional red ale, so depending on your tastes you may really like it, or be disappointed. I liked it. Also, it has more carbonation than most brews of this style, which gives it a lighter feel. Very enjoyable.

I can't for the life of me figure out what the expiration date is, but it is sometime in 2010.
The beer pours with a frothy, two-finger thick, nicely tan colored head. The beer is a deep, concentrated red color that shows a brilliantly clear, red-copper color when held up to the light. The aroma smells of ample crystal malt and American hops; specific notes of ruby-red grapefruit, lychee, bright tangelo, some pine notes and even a hint of hemp are contributed by the hops while aromas of biscuits, lightly toasted whole grain, some sweet tea like notes and some dusty grain husk notes are from the malt / crystal malt.

Sweet tasting up front, but this plays up more of the citrus / fruity hop aspects than making this cloyingly like heavy crystal malt (which is definitely a good thing in my book). Flavors of tangelo zest, some lychee, and essential grapefruit oil jump out immediately in the flavor. The middle sees a herbaceous, sort of pine like, with a touch of menthol and hemp oil being noticed; these flavors linger and morph into the finish that has a soft bitterness that is amply tempered by the chewy, palate clinging malt character. The malt lingers in the long finish quite well with notes of biscuit like malt character and pale-toasted whole grain character. While this has a certain palate fullness to it the beer isn't overly heavy, in fact it is quite drinkable, but definitely has enough viscosity to cling to the palate quite a bit.

Despite being so dark and crystal malt influenced, this beer ends up with a very well done balance between malt and hop. There are ample hop flavors here to keep me happy and, while I was expecting it to, the crystal malt notes never get out of hand. This is quite well done and I would happily drink another couple of these.

Poured into a pint glass from a 12oz bottle.

Pours a nice perfect amber color with some slight darkness and haze to it. There is a nice 0.5 inch head that forms and has some nice dense bubbles with some off-white color. The head recedes to a nice ring around the glass.

Nose starts off with some nice sweet malt that is combined and plays well with some nice grassy herbal hop notes. Nice bready notes that are also complimented by some spicy piney hop. Herbal notes with some slight citrus is perceived as well. Aroma is a bit light.

The taste confirms the nose. Very bready and delicious. Fresh baked grainy and slightly sweet bread. Very nice. The bread is complimented well by spicy hop resin notes. Some nice grass and pine as well as slight orange and tangerine notes in the middle. The flavor is really nice and drinkable. A solid American Amber with good malt backbone and nice refreshing hop notes. Crisp and clean with a nice earthy and bitter finish.

This a good amber. Very crisp and clean with nice bready notes. Overall a good refreshing example of the style. Good malt backbone with great floral hop kicks.
