Levity Amber Ale (Odell Brewing Co.)

Levity is something that Amber was asked to work on by her life coach.  I’m not really sure what it is but I felt obliged to help her by drinking Levity Amber Ale from Odell Brewing Company.  I think, technically, I was supposed to write the review, but Austin got tired of waiting. I kind of feel like Odell Brewing is an underrated brewery.  Their beer is found statewide, but it just seems like it’s not on tap and hidden in liquor stores.  Typically you will find Easy Street Wheat and 90 Schilling (which is a lighter Scottish Ale closer to an Amber ale) on tap as well as in liquor stores.  Also in stores you may find Levity and their seasonals such as Isolation (which is their winter seasonal).  Check them out when you can find them and I think you’ll agree they make some fine ales.

The color is a dark gold/light amber hue ( probably a bright copper color would be more accurate) with an off white head.  The aroma is citrusy and caramel with a nice crispness to it.  The taste has a sweet caramelness that seems a bit grainy, but it still maintains a light crispness that keeps it an easy drinking beer.  I really like this one.  It’s a nice change from the standard Amber ales.  It’s not toasty or malty/sweet but light crisp and refreshing. It’s a hoppy sweet, kind of dry for an amber. Good times.

Prost!
