Poured from the bottle into a stemless wine glass.

A real nice orange amber body, hints of red on the edges, and slow rising carbonation goes up. Head is a clumpy off tan, that has major retention and hang on everything. A real aggresive and impressive looking brew.

Nose brings a bounty of ripping malts and hops. Ripping grain action, with a hint of light toast. The hops have a little bit of earth quality, but get a bit herbal, making the malt even sweeter almost caramel dominant. Either way it's impressive.

Palate turns it down a bit though from everything anticipated. Light malts with some good doughy like density, ripping grain is turned down a bit, without the big husky quality. Hop angle seems a little lost, but brings some lingering sweetness of tea and herbs on the finish.

Overall though it's still an enjoyable brew from these guys and I can see myself drinking a lot of this very casually.

Pours a clear, amber color. One inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of strong hops and some slight sweet malt. Fits the style of an American Amber/Red Ale. Mouth feel is smooth, crisp, and a low carbonation level. Tastes of strong hops throughout (especially in the finish), some earthy malt, and slight sweet malt. Overall, a really easy drinking beer but nothing special.

Thanks to bitterbill for this one!

Pours hazed orange amber with a tan head that becomes wispy. Dotted lacing and thin lines stick.

The smell is of caramel ala "red", piney/spicy hop notes and slight bread/toast.

The taste is of caramelish maltiness with light to medium toast. Spicy hops give it piney/herbal notes. Finishes dry. Finish lingers.

It has a smooth medium body with mild to medium carbonation.

An American Red with a nice hop balance. Alcohol very well-covered. An enjoyable American Red!

A: Two finger light beige head on a mahogany body. Full head sticks around for about three minutes then leaves a cap and collar. Wonderful lacing around the sides of the tulip.

S: Deep hop aromas, juicy orange/citrus.

T: Hops do not present itself as the nose would like you to believe. blanaced malt to hop presence, all somewhat subdued. Shows no signs of alochol.

M: Medium mouthfeel, medium to medium-low carbonation for the style.

D/O: Very well balanced, it's biggest attribute. Drinkability high.

Lightly hazed, deep crimson hue, fleeting beige-toned head.

Bright, malty aromatic. Fruity, hoppy

Taste: snappy, hoppy, full-bodied, malt-driven. Great texture, excellent mouthfeel, plentiful play on the palate. Wonderful dance of malt and hops.

Supreme drinkability, long hoppy finish. Quite satisfying, very easy to turn to another, and quickly empty it.

Been Awhile!

Pours a pretty nice clean/clear amber color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which also leaves some thick/creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, with some nice hop notes, slight citrus. The taste is very nice malty, nice hoppyness, some citrus. Medium body, with a very nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a really nice brew, definitely would buy a sixer of it. Recommended.

Thanks goes out to Bitterbill for this brew.

Pours a very nice amber color, nice carbonation, very nice one-finger creamy tan head, with some nice sticky lacing to follow. The nose is malty, with some hops, slight citrus even. The taste is very nice, a nice little hop bomb, with some malts, citrus. Medium body, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Very drinkable, this brewery surprises me just about every time I try something from them, way to go Odell, thanks Bill.

Thanks Mike, quite a good little beer.

Beer is orange with no haze, decent head with poor retention and minimal lacing, looks like beer.

The aroma is malty with an ever so mild roast to it. I think I know how this beer was made.

Beer is medium to light in body with a nice sweetness and a mildly dry finish. The midpalate has a mild ethanol flavor with a mildly bitter finish. Overall a decent beer that I'd have again.

This is a solid red ale, with a pronounced citrus hops characteristic.
Pours a semi-bright amber/caramel color with a just off-white head. Looks pretty darn good.
Hops up front in the nose. Citrus and slight metallic, a faint malty biscuit.
A hop forward flavor. Citrus with some of that metallic coming through. touch of alcohol. Some softness towards the end. As it warms this softness introduces a nice maltiness and bread. A good balance towards the end.
Easy drinking. Solid.

A nearly clear, red-tinted amber body with a smallish white head that settles down fairly quickly. Spotty lacing.

Nice enough aroma, citrus hops and caramel malt well balanced. Touches of pineapple, grapefruit, pine resins. Flavor follows suit, prominent hoppiness (again mostly citrus with subtle pine notes) offset by moderately sweet caramel malt.

Body is medium as is the carbonation. A bit creamy, with a dry finish and a little bit of lingering bitterness in the aftertaste.

Another nice hoppy beer from Odell; this one, along with Lagunitas' Imperial Red (and others) seem to be retorts to the wild success of Troegs' Nugget Nectar. Not quite as good as the original but pretty damn tasty. I am continually impressed with the quality of Odell's beers.

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a clear reddish-brown color with a tan head. The aroma is resiny and piney hops with some caramel malt. The flavor is piney malts with some caramel and bready malts. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice hoppy red ale.

This is like a lighter version of the O'Dell Extra Special Red Ale I would venture a guess. Hits that 1/2" white head range, bright red appearance with ample clarity. Aroma was mildly hoppy first, then as much in the taste. The hopping rate kept the mouthfeel in hoppy territory and kept it from becoming too much like Killian's with its red/amber ale malt deadwood flavor trappings.

L: Pours reddish amber with a slight haze under a 2” cream colored clingy foam cap.
S: Pine, citrus, grass and malt.
T: Fruit, light grain, spice, sweet malt, and cola lead to an assertive bitter finish.
F: Creamy and juicy with a medium body and carbonation.
O: Nicely balanced and easy to drink.
