Odell Brewing Co. Drumroll APA – American Pale Ale at 5.3% ABV | 40 IBU

Odell Brewing Co. Drumroll APA American Pale Ale at 5.3% ABV | 40 IBU (US$1.75 at Specs Main Houston, 355 ml, best before 18-Mar-2018, acquired 3-Mar-2018, reviewed 11-Mar-2018)

Appearance: cloudy pale amber with two fingers of creamy pale ivory head, excellent retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: juicy citrus, tropical fruit, pale malt, mild grass. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body tending slightly light, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium finish. (4/5)

Worrisomely close to the BB date, but still quite pleasant for all that. Juicy and bright citrus hops lead the way, followed closely by tropical fruit and supported by a clean pale malt. The taste is not quite as bright as the aroma promises, but it’s still decent. Really approachable and amazingly cheap – if I had regular access to this, I’d keep it on hand to offer guests, especially during summer months, BBQs and the like. (15/20)
