Odell "Isolation Ale"
Odell Brewing Company - Fort Collins, Colorado USA
Winter Warmer (ABV 6%) (IBU 29)

[Suggested Glassware: Lager Glass]


Rating: 3.4/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a clear burnt copper with an average (1-2 finger) off white fluffy head that dissipated at a normal pace, down to a thin film with a small collar and had very good sticky lacing.

The aroma was of a toasted biscuit malt, light herbal hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel, dark fruit (raisons and plums) and a lightly mild spiciness.

The taste was lightly sweet and malty with a hint of caramel from the onset, becoming slightly bitter sweet and a tad acidic with a touch of dark fruit and a light spicy alcohol tinge at the end. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow with a slightly bitter spicy taste left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just under medium in body with a thin dry texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall this brew was a nice change from a lot of winter beers, possessing good malty backbone, a nice sweet fruitiness and just a smidgen of spice, giving it a really good drinkability...
