Pours a hazy copper color with a small, frothy white head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of toasted malt with a touch of hops.

Tastes of the malt notes combined with a light hop presence. Notes of toasted bread, brown sugar, and some grainy sweetness as well. Hops have an earthy notion to them, but are fairly understated. Finishes fairly clean.

Mouthfeel is light with a small amount of carbonation that gives a bit of a watery feel.

Overall, I feel like this is just an okay beer and could definitely be improved upon.

a pretty light amber. smells like caramel and toffee and amber malts. a little sweeter hop essence, but this is more of a malt showcase. its nice to have an amber thats tame like this. its drinkable and not at all filling. flavor is solid, not too rich, but interesting in the mouth. good carbonation, medium body. good session amber, nothing incredibily original here, but another fine product from odell. they can do no wrong in my mind

This is one dangerously drinkable brew.

It keeps an egg-white head that quickly thins to lacings, which crowns Levity's hazy amber color. It smells sweet and malty, with a little bit of fruit.

While no flavors stick out in this beer, it's very smooth. The hops and malts balance well and give a little bitter punch at the end, but nothing lingers. I think I got some citrus in there, but that could be the hops.

It was kind of difficult to review this beer, since every time I took a sip it just kind of slid down the back of my throat. It's pleasant while it's in your mouth, but it doesn't leave a trace once it leaves. Perfect session beer.

Odell Levity Amber Ale: Odell is one of my favorite providers, so it is time I tried their “lighter” ale offering. The Levity is burnished copper in color with mild carbonation. The thin lumpy head is off-white and does fade. Aroma is about average in potency, and is mostly on the fruity and hoppy side. Flavor is in the sweet spot for an ale, mellow maltyness which is not too overpowering fades into a hoppy finish. The Levity is a very solid offering from Odells. A great into to craft brew for the Bud drinker, or a nice lighter offering for those burned out on “big” craft beers.

amber pour with a small head of white on top of the glass that settled down nicely into a light coating of lacing all around the edges of the glass. aroma is sweet with nice light bready malts, hints of caramel and a touch of light earthy hops. crisp and clean, the hops are a bit more prevelant in the taste as a nice touch of pine bites the tongue with a smooth, sweet finish that is slightly dry
