COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This American-style golden ale is our lightest, in both color and flavor. Bright Spot is brewed with locally malted 2-row barley and the finest American, Czech and German hops lending a well-balanced, refreshing taste. A compliment to nearly any of our menu choices.

Absolutely positively not the "bright spot" of the beers at Town Hall. Was a light golden color with decent lacing, had a soapy taste, slightly sour. Ugh.

On tap at brewery

This was the first thing off of the sampler tray. Fortunately it was also the worst thing on the sampler. There was nothing bad about it, but at the same time it was devoid of anything interesting. I could see how this would appeal to people used to drinking Bud Light but for the rest of us, I think better options exist. Avoid this unless there are enough compelling beers of tap to make it worth getting the sampler over two full pints.

Aroma / Appearance - The nose was a feeble combination of honey, lemon and blueberry. A trace amount of hops tried to make itself known but it smelled more like the dregs of a hoppy beer than one that was hopped itself. There was no much carbonation or head at all sitting over the golden colored body.

Flavor / Palate - The first sip (and subsequent) sips were very faint exposures to lemonade and grain. As soon as I was able to identify something it faded away. The best thing to say about the palate is that it does not leave any taste in the throat. This has to be among one of the most bland beers that I have ever tasted.

Draught at the brewpub. Clear golden color with two fingers of white head that left a bit of lace behind. Pretty standard golden ale with a fresh malty cereal grain aroma and flavor accented by sprucy hops. This is a well done beer. Nothing flashy, but solid for a golden.

Bright malty aroma, golden color. Nutty malty and light hoppy flavor. Slightly dry on the finish. Typical light ale. Not overly memorable. Light.

I have loved every Town Hall beer that has hit my lips so far. This is the only exception! Pale gold colour, white sodaish head and little aroma. Maybe just of some dusty field like aromas. The taste was way to fizzy and not at all complex. It really reminded me of what your standard BMC would be if it was good. I think it is, however, a smart brew for them as it appealed to all of the non beer drinkers in my party.

First off I do not normally frink this really light brews but I was driving so chanced it. Well if you like a yeast doughy lighty hopped brew than this is for you. It was nicely done and refreshing but no complexity.

It had a yellow color with a small head and excellent lacing. It had a nice smooth and refreshing taste.

Pale gold, white head. French bread aromas, warm and yeasty. Fresh cut hay, light mint and earthy. Warm bread flavor that falls off rather abruptly. A bit thin palate. Not particularily memorable, but a pretty clean ale never-the-less.
