Copper colored with a quarter inch of tightly packed dishwater white. Moderate lacing. The aroma is of piney hops and light malt. I'm tasting piney hops and light, biscuity malt. Very well balanced. The mouth offers a light stickiness and is a lightly resinous.

L- Bright, clear, light bronze. Long lasting head and sticky lacing. Lighter color than most pales, which to me is often a good sign of that I will enjoy the malt to hop balance.
S- Fairly muted but what I get is very pleasant. Pine, citrus, sweet bready malt.
T- Super well balanced in sweetness to bitterness, although flavor is all hops. Very little malt presence but not bitter. Pine, and citrus is really all I get. Not all that complex as far as hop flavors but so well executed.
F- Middle of the road for a pale, not heavy but not thin either. A very quaffable pale while remaining serious flavor and bite.
O- I love early everything Odell does. Because they are a large established brewery (relative to "craft") they don't get much hype but they are one of my all time favorite breweries and they are so stinking consistent. Different hop profile to their IPA, (which is very fruit forward to me) which some may or may not like as much but same flawless execution.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: pale golden amber. One finger white head with medium thin lacing.

Smell: hint of citrus. Some malts. A hint of sweet.

Taste: a balanced brew with some citrus. Crisp taste with a Hint a of pine.

Feel: perfect carbonation and easy drinking. As always Odell's makes an outstanding beer.

Overall: it is good experience to drink this ale. I prefer more bitterness but that is why it's not an IPA.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a beautiful transparent gold with a thin ivory head.
Aroma: Less aroma then I was expecting given the name. A little sour with notes of citrus.
Taste: Very clean taste with just a hint of sour and a hint of malt grains. Good balance between hops and malt.
Feel: Effervescent with a mild bite.
Overall: Decent beer with a clean taste. A little sour, surprisingly, and not particularly hoppy, but certainly enjoyable.

St. Lupulin pours a bronze color with a small barley lacing head. A bitter aroma, with hints of apple. Taste is a a bit sweet, with a noticeable pine note, and finishes a little dry. Good body and feel. Overall, tasty and easy to drink.

This one pours a reddish gold that is slightly opaque and has as nice white head that is short and settles leaving little to no lacing down the glass.

the nose is sweet pepper, bread, pine, grass, and malt with some peppery hops.

The taste is a very dry malt bed with a sharp peppery hop flavor that is bitter but not too bitter. the dry and bitter come together quite well.

The mouthfeel is rich and just right for this style.

Overall this is an exceptional ale and very enjoyable.
