Odell Red Ale 12oz bottle into slender tulip

Body is transparent red with gold and caramel highlights. Produces a two inch head from a moderate-slow pour, with a mix of tiny and course sandy colored bubbles with nice sticky lace throughout and good retention.

Big caramel malty sweetness as it's poured into the glass, and grapefruit rind and tropical fruit is present on the nose after the pour. The aroma is very intense, and quite inviting.

Taste starts off with a big sweet caramel chewyness, and draws into a tangerine/citrus hop bite that is much less intense than the nose would lead one to believe. The hops are a perfume-like and floral one the palette. There is a little bit of chocolate/nutty flavor as it warms a bit.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and carbonation is a little low. It's a little on the refreshing side of things, especially since the ABV is 6.5%, I was expecting it to be a bit heavier than this. Not bad though, just not quite what I was expecting.

This is pretty tasty, and I could throw back a few, especially since it is quite well balanced.

A- Poured a 1 finger head with medium to poor retention. Plenty of lacing left on the glass and the body had haze for dayz.

S- Had a sweet smell up front. Hops, a bit of pine, a hint of grapefruit, caramel and honey.

T- Hoppy start with a caramel/honey backbone. Small detection of grapefruit but it hides in there pretty well.

M- Excellent. Medium to low carbonation and an oily, textured and well bodied mouthfeel.

O- Pretty good. I could see how this would be an excellent beer to pair with some ribs or a pork chop.

Amber-as-can-be body really lights up the glass, but the main attraction here is the dark beige head. The color's perfect, and the foam leaves good amount of lacing sticking to the edges. Smell's fairly weak, though. Some lightly toasted scents, mostly. Has a caramel character, but most of the time, a surprisingly bitter amount of hops are present that covers up any other scent. Also has a scent like jazz apples.

Bitter taste on the tongue on the first few swings. The fairly light body bubbles well and gets even better as the brew warms. The grassy hops slowly pull back to reveal a sweet, bready flavor that's all-too-welcome. Heck, even a bit of alcohol seeps on to the tongue, which is surprising for a beet of this style. Finish is clean as can be, but leaves the gut quite warm.

Overall/notes - A good slow-drinking beer, if you ask me. I haven't had many ambers that have been this bitter, and while it's a nice change of pace, I'd prefer that amount of bitterness to stay in American Pales, myself. Not too bad on the whole shot.
