Red Ale by Odell Brewing Company
American Amber / Red Ale
6.50 % ABV

The Rocky Mountain Goat is no ordinary goat. Just like Odell Red is no ordinary red.
We took the American style red to a whole new level by adding a variety of aggressive American hops giving this ale a distinctive fresh hop aroma and flavor.
We think you’ll agree this red has some serious kick.

Available January through April

Deep dark coppery brown with a bit of brick red to it. Heavy glow to the body carrying a smeared appearance. Densely capped with a beige crown of firm foam standing to about a pinky high. Faintly thinned sheets and webby strings of lace coat the glass well.

Sweet dark red apple bready aroma with a bit of fresh leafy hoppyness, apricot, red rice, pale and red malts. Nice and clean, with a bit of crispness to it and tugs well on the nose.

Taste is smallish in the apple area with a semi dry undertone of red, toasted, and pale malt with a fresh grazing of grassy and leafy dried hoppyness. Breezy but a firm little sweetness sits a bit bready with some lighter honey and caramel swimming about. Airy finish with a fluffy ended light tone of bittering hops and buttered toast.

Clean lighter medium body with a nicely rounded and easy going sweetness that floats right through letting the little nuances of the flavors and dryness mingle their way onto the palate with a complexity worthy of any solid Red ale out there.

Pretty impressive stuff. Subtle, complex, with an easy to drink attitude. Odell knows how to make the simple styles seem just a bit more so, which is great. And this is definately one of those brews.
