detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2007
Pours an auburn color with about 2 inches of cream colored foam. The head backs away quickly to a thin layer of loosely packed bubbles. A partial half-ring of foam remains after each sip. Faint aroma of spiciness and malt. Good German malt profile, but a little on the thin side. Some spicy hops with a little bit of wild rice in the aftertaste.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 10, 2004
On-tap at the pub for lunch: Nice clear rusty amber color with a tall, frothy whipped off-white head that sits for a long while before just sitting as a heavy skim, lacing in strings and spots mostly. Aroma is quite toasty and warm, good amount of biscuity crispness thats a bit earthy and deep, bits of floral grassy hops take a balcony seat. Flavors are bold and upfront to begin with a very present toasty malting, crisp and biting baked biscuit tones that remain for a good stint. Hops are secondary with some light floral grassy notes and slight wood. Feel is about medium bodied with a good carbonation thats a bit biting at first(when cold) but as this warms it gets pretty darn nice and very drinkable.

ElGaucho (2240) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Roasted malt aroma with really good hops notes when a deep whiff is taken in. Dark, reddish brown, off-white head that is basically fully eroding, which may have something to do with the plastic cups that were required for drinking on the outdoor patio. Flavor is a wow! Really nice! Great hop profile, moderate. Plums. I’ve had something before that tastes like this. This brew restores my faith in Mike Hoops, not that it had really ever waned. Another wonderful brew from the folks at Town Hall.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2004
A copper color, that’s creeping on crimson. handsomely befitted with a 1/2", long-lasting layer of beige foam. Aroma, rich and vibrant, with soft fruit, and a mellow nuttiness, mildly bitter hoppiness, very potent when breathed in deeply in the nose, a heady spark abuzz in the olfactories. Smoothness incarnate once on the tongue! Again, lightly fruity, a touch of cherry and plum, with a big malty flavor. Good texture, medium bodied, with a crisp, nutty, very tasty finish. Vienna and Munich malts were employed in this one, no notice given on the hops, but their presence is felt little and they were included sparingly here. The first Altbier I’ve had from Town Hall, and it feels like they’ve pegged the style squarely, soundly and deliciously! Very basic, tasty, and easy-drinking al the way.

JK (4615) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2004 Almost no aroma; what is there is malt. Brown, small head. Flavors of malt, hops, and fruit. Reminded me of a bitter.

Tap. Copper color. Musty malt aroma. Caramel and toasted flavors. Smooth.

Nuffield (3717) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2002
Sensitive hoppy/malty combination. Reddish body, much like the rest of the beers at Town Hall, it seems, retaining some lace. Decent beer.
