Tap during 10th Anniversary week. Malty aroma with some citrus hop. Grainy flavor with a hoppy finish. hellomynameis (877) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2007
very light golden colour with a medium white head. The nose has some citrus and pine hops. The flavor is all pale ale with a medium blast of piney hops. Not much to it...all hail the town hall pale. beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2007
After enjoying the hell out of many of these on-tap during this past week, a growler was needed in order to get a solid review - Medium hay gold color, kinda clear with a slight smearing of tone and glare. A few, very slow bubbles rise up within the body. Startchy medium sized topping of semi crunchy looking white foam sits on top. Lots of thick lacing in zig-zagged strings all over the place plaster the glass as its consumed(easily).
Clean, yet pungent of hop flowered resinyness and a lemony sweet backing for a pleasing aroma with a tint of grass and some nice buttery tones to it. Actually, this is quite reminiscent of the Single Malt with just a bit more lemony hop cone freshness to it. I wonder if the Golden Promise malt was used in this?
Taste is outstanding! Clean, crisp, crunchy, fluffy hop textured tone up front with a nice balancing sweetness behind. Kinda toasty and buttery. Has a uniquely set lemony pithyness and high ended grass tone to it with the hops. Nice lasting flavors that are milding yet forward without a full on hop over load. Clean, crisp finish with a floating pithy bitterness and bite of pine and flowering fall grasses.
Firm and rounded medium body with a great balance of sweetened, lightly toasty breads and lemony crunched hop grasses. Seemingly simple but carries a creative complexity thats intreguing as hell and lasts just right through to the finish
Out of this world drinkability. A true sessionable Pale ale here. Another Town Hall gem of a pale. Reminds me alot of the Pizza Port Amigo Mexican Lager I had many of in Carlsbad a couple summers ago. undsioux7 (876) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - OCT 24, 2007
On tap. Pours clear light gold with an off white head. Light citris. lemon aroma. Slightly sweet malt taste. ok tennisjoel (1485) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Interesting aroma. Typical grapefruit but accentuated with a sweeter fruity boquet. Flavor is cereal grain mixed with light hops. Some honey also detected. Nothing too special and a bit boring.

On tap. A clear golden color with a smallish off-white head. Aroma of citrus, some malt. Decent beer, but nothing special. Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Hang on to your hats, guys...town hall made another pale ale! Oh, my stars and garters!
Poured into a Samuel Adams boston Lager glass. Small white head. Pale peach appearance, hazy at the top and middle of the glass, clear and yellow toward the bottom.
Lively fruity aroma, apricot and orange. Scotch malt leaps up and joins the hops in the nose. Yeah, it’s in there all right. nice stuff.
Grainy, malty feel in the flavor up front. Hops on the tongue have a pleasant bitterness, but leave a minor presence in the flavor. Very dry taste, clean once past the grain, but with a long finish. Lays happily in the mouth, asking another sip.
An interesting beer, a noble experiment. wish it had a bit more of everything, but that’s me, singing my usual song. This was conceived as an easy-drinking pale ale that reveals the Scottish ingredients in a happy way, and in this it succeeds. Tasty, and subtle. Even a hop-addled kook like me can applaud that.
I wasn’t crazy about my first pint at the pub, but here in the comfort of home, I can enjoy it for what it is.
