I'll forever sing the praises of La Fin Du Monde. Great stuff. The pickin's in my fridge are pretty sparse:

Kalik (2)
Redhook Long Hammer IPA (1)
Strongbow (4)
Bud Light (about a dozen...why do people leave this crap at my house? I didn't buy it and don't know where it came from.)

Tried New Belgium's 1554 earlier. I'll pawn the other 5 bottles off on people I don't like. More info here.

Drinking Odell's 90/- at the moment. It's not too bad, though at 5.3% ABV it's probably more of an 80/-. My thoughts (Beer Advocate style):

Appearance: Wonderful clear, copper color. Thin head, some lacing.

Smell: Pleasant and sweet. Some spiciness - allspice/clove? Distinct yeast note.

Taste: Smooth and malty. Sweet up front, a touch of hop bitterness at the finish.

Mouthfeel: A touch heavy, but not thick. Appropriate.

Drinkability: I could almost call it a session beer, but it's a tad "big" on the palate and in the gut for that. Would pair well with a good steak and potatoes dinner.

Anybody have any other experience with Odell's brews? I haven't heard much about them, but I've seen their beer for sale quite often lately.

I've only ever had the O'Dells 5 Barrel Pale Ale, but thoroughly enjoy it. I'd have to say its one of my favorites; pretty intense hop aroma/flavor for a normal PA (due probably to hop-back), but I think its perfect.
Others must think its a good beer too:
We treat 5 Barrel Pale Ale to an infusion of fresh whole hop flowers in the Hop Back and the Fermentor, as well as four hop additions during the kettle boil. We like how this gives the beer a fresh, lively flavor and aroma.
5.2% Alcohol By Volume 36 IBUs

Winner:
Gold, Classic English-Style Pale Ale, 2006 Great American Beer Festival
Silver, Classic English-Style Pale Ale, 2005 Great American Beer Festival

I have a fridge in the garage that I got for free off Craigslist. I only use it to thaw BBQ meat, and to keep liquid sustenance. The whole top shelf and half of the middle shelf are dedicated to beer right now. I'll admit that right now I have a little more than normal. See, SWMBO just had a baby, and I was denied my right to drink for the entire pregnancy, with the exception of the company x-mas party. So like 2 days after my daughter was born, I went to Lees Discount Liquor - The liquor store to shop at if you live in Las Vegas. I think by the time I waled out the door, I had spent almost 100$! And they always have a bunch of beers on sale every week. And you get a discount when you pay cash!


I've actually got my eyey on Criagslist right now to see if I can't score another freebie...maybe a chest freezer this time!

Found it today, another Sam Adam's brew I haven't tried yet.

Low to moderate malt flavors, with a suprising amount of sweetness. Lightly hopped. Not a bad beer overall, but maybe just a bit watery. Could have used a little heavier malt flavor
