Odell collaboration with Krug Park in Omaha, NE. Golden Ale with Chili peppers.

Appearance: 1-finger head which quickly settles. Good lacing throughout.

Nose: Very light chili pepper odors.

Taste: Generally typical golden ale odors... Chili peppers are subtle but make a nice appearance ~5-8 seconds after each sip and linger. Very mild but flavorful - excels at giving the flavor of the peppers rather than the black pepper that so many chili peppers do.

Mouthfeel: Somewhat watery as expected from the style.

Overall: Not the greatest chili beer, but not a bad introductory beer for the style. I could stand a good deal more heat, but as it stands this is very sessionable. It does feel a bit lacking on spiciness and/or heat even for a sessionable option, however. That being said, it's great to see more brewers experimenting with the style.
