Beer Review - St Lupulin Extra Pale Ale

Walk on the hoppier side of
life with St Lupulin
Todays beer review comes from a recommendation by the Stout Fellow. St Lupulin Extra Pale Ale from Odell Brewing is a Summer seasonal beer that is available from May through to September.

It pours a pale golden colour, a nice level of carbonation produces a small creamy white head. The aroma is very strong, with citrus and honey fighting for dominance, a lovely enticing aroma that screams 'hop monster!'. Medium bodied with a honey like texture. The floral characterisitics of the hops come through very strongly in the flavour, their prominance probably due to the dry-hopping that this beer experienced. The carbonation is nicely subdued which allows the flavour and aroma to combine beautifully, all of this is followed by a warming alcohol sensation from the 6.5% ABV.

This is my first experience of Odell's beers and I am happy to say that I have three more of their offerings waiting for me in my beer fridge. For those who like the hoppier side of life, this beer is highly recommended.

This sounds like a must try.
I have to say I have yet to pick up some Odells. Actually, sounds like a good idea to order some on now.
