Odell’s Cutthroat Porter

April 28, 2011

I must preface this:  I love porter. It allows you too get all the wonderful tastes of a stout with the drinkability of an amber. I love session beers. Porters, with their dazzling array of possible flavors, make great session beers.

That said, Odell Brewing Co.’s Cutthroat porter was pretty blah.

It’s a porter.

Thats about it. Low bitterness and malt made it easy to drink but so did the lack of any defining characteristics.

It’s a porter.

That’s really all I can say. Well done on successfully making a porter Odell. There’s absolutely no reason for me to buy it again, but sure, you made a porter.

A porter is a blank canvass that you can paint pretty much any flavor you want on to. Odell Brewing Co. just left the canvass blank.

    Wow. No more scathing review than to say “meh, blah”.

      It was odd writing this review. It certainly wasn’t a “bad” porter but there wasn’t anything good I could say about it either.
