Pours a clear amber color with a tight, white head that leaves big chunks of lacing.

Smells of citrus and caramel.

Tastes of a nice balance of hops and full malts. Caramel and toffee malt leads off with a nice sweetness to it. Hops come in with grapefruit and pine notes. A light bitterness, but well-balanced overall.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a good red.

Bottle into pint glass
A - Clear, deep amber with touches of brown/red/burgundy, 1 finger cream head with moderate dissipation 4
S - Piney hop scent made it to my nose before I sniffed, and it shows malt background as well. Soft florals, my mind is wandering to a Ricola scent. 4
T - Malt forward with slight vanilla, moderately bitter finish, a bit of caramel on the finish/after, not the hop bitterness I expected from the scent, nicely balanced 4
M - somewhat musty to me but not in a bad way, fairly bold presence that does not ever get chewy, great carbonation from first sip to last 4
D - For what I consider a pretty bold beer the drinkability is not compromised 4
I like this beer and think it would be well received even in a large group situation. A little something for everyone. Red Ale is an all around solid selection.

Amber in color with a beautiful tan head.

Hop smell is strong. Notes of caramel and bread.

Has a great malt backbone. Faint bit of alcohol in the finish. A sweet touch of caramel as well.

Mouthfeel is a bit grainy in the finish.

Overall a Good beer.

A: A cloudy, dirty copper in color with a finger of off-white head..nice texture. Leaves a lot of soapy lacing on all edges of the glass with a faint cap, but lots of large bubbles around the edges.

S: A fair amount of hops, but pretty well balanced by caramel, bready malts. Hops seems to be mostly citrus, but I think there's a bit of pine in here also.

T: Mirrors the smell. Citrus and piney hops with sweet caramel and bready malts providing support.

M: Medium bodied, kind of oily.

O: Not the best red ale I've ever had, but to be fair, it's a little past its best by date of 6/15/11. I would really like to try this again fresh and rescore.

Poured from a bottle dated 5.29.13 into a pint glass

Pours a very pretty ruby red with about a half inch foam head that stays throughout the duration of enjoying this one. Smells fantastic with a heavy dose of piny hops and some malty sweetness at the end. Tastes quite different than it smells, with the malty sweetness blending quite nicely with the hop presence.

Overall, this beer is one of my favorite offerings from Odell. As I sip on it, I am instantly transported back to my glorious days in Fort Collins as a CSU grad student... This was a beer that I always looked forward to every year, and I always had plenty on hand to share with guests at outdoor events and BBQs. Brings back memories of some of the best times of my life, and for that, I have to give this an obligatory two thumbs up.
