Town Hall Coconut Manhattan Reserve
March 12, 2016 - on tap at Rare Beer Fest held in the Minnesota History Center. Well this was one with a significant difference in my aroma and taste scoring and I may have been generous with a 6 on taste. The aroma was very good with the coconut and sweet cherry. The coconut and more sour cherry in the taste did not work well.
