Redish Gold/brown color. light lacing. Intitial taste of lemon and grapefruit which mellows to a malty caramel after taste with a hint of hops.

Pours with a large, light brown head. Is reddish brown in color. Has a sweet, hoppy aroma combined with a caramel scent. Initial taste is sweet from the caramel. Finishing taste is slightly hoppy with a slight hint of alcohol. Overall taste is very similar to a brown ale without the bitterness. An amazing beer. Need to stock up next Fall with this.

This is my gold standard for winter warmers.
Malty, hoppy, and the perfect level of ABV to compliment.

Great feel in the mouth; well balanced; smell and taste are good but a bit thin. Contrary to some other reviews, I found a lot of carbonation. Taste improves as it warms.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

A: Clean amber color with huge beige head. Long retention and good lacing. No visible carbo bubbles.

S: Hops first, some malt and spices, fade away quickly.

T: Malt dominates at first, with hops playing second fiddle. As it warms, hops and spices come through stronger and linger in the aftertaste.

M: Thin, light-medium body, no carbonation noticeable. Booze well hidden, but peeks out as beer warms.

O: Drinkable, well balanced, not overly spiced. A bit flat and not as remarkable as other Odell brews I had.

I usually find this style boring, the the butterscotch and caramel flavors explode in my mouth. Very drinkable, great for this cold Minnesota winter
