Pours deep amber, hazy with a very persistent white foam head. Aroma is malty with a backbone of english hops. Taste is great, bitter but balanced with malts, sweetness is present but not aggresive. Medium body with medium carbonation. Great great beer.

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

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.

OUTSTANDING.

Odell generally goes yard on most of the things they do, but this one is remarkable.

Very simply, one of the very best beers I have ever had. It's seasonal, and I look forward to it eagerly.

This beer is quiet - there's a lot going on, but it all blends so well that the overall impression is one of unified, subtle but definite finesse; this right here is malt/roast/good-ol'-behind-the-scenes-wizardry flavor, not your rather more obvious hops.
