Amber colored body with a hazy that is nice to look at. Off white head, medium retention.

S- Bready/biscuity, apricot, caramel and hops. Spices bring blend it all together.

T- Closely behind the smell. Stands out with a floral taste, hops, and apricot. Slight bready notes, and ends with a hint of caramel.

M- Medium bodied, dry finish. Somewhat refreshing and could be drunk in the summertime, or winter.

Delicious. I dont know why I waited so long to try this, but O'Dell hit one out of the park once again.

Just good beer to be had here. Simple, yes, but damn good. On-tap at the brewery. Clean malty graininess to start with a nice crisp pop of spicy hop flavor. Mild bitterness but the finish is dry enough to keep this thing right in balance. A bit of sugar cookie, fruit, and pine emerge as it warms. Clean, drinkable, well-crafted.

Odell’s Levity Amber Ale

Poured into a pint glass from a 12oz bottle.

Pours a nice dark hazy golden color with some nice copper notes. There is a nice white head that recedes slowly leaving some nice sticky lacing.

Aroma is biscuity with some nice herbal hop notes. Some good notes of bitterness and malty sweetness intermingled throughout.

Taste starts off with some light herbal grassy hop notes and some nice bitterness that is intermingled with some good caramel laced malt notes. Nice and refreshing and straight forward. The nice caramel notes are mild and grainy with some nice toasty malt notes that blend well with the lighter but floral hops. Nice and crisp and refreshing with a good bitter finish.

Overall this is a nice and straight forward Amber. Nice and refreshing, light and accessible. A good gateway beer. Flavorful but not too intense. Good caramel malt notes with nice herbal hops.
