Draft. Pours a orange/gold color with a slight tan head. Good lacing. Aroma is of hops with slight fruit notes. Initial taste is the orange qickly followed by the hops. Strong hops presence. Lingering bitterness. Medium/Light mouthfeel. Pretty tasty. HonusWagner (2223) - Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2010
UPDATED: APR 18, 2014 Taste carries through the orange more than the nose, but it’s just a very solid APA with nice slightly sweet flavors without actual sweetness, particularly on the back of the palate which is surprisingly dry. Every single Town Hall beer looks incredible; great lacing, wonderful coloration, nice lasting heads on even the stouts and porters. jmikolich (1486) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2012
on tap at THT 1Oct2012, Amarillo hops, Yum. The citrus from the hops dominates, and its tough to discern the orange additions becuase of these hops, so to me it tastes like a well hopped APA. which is good because I love well hopped APAs XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - APR 15, 2013
On tap at Town Hall Tap, nice dark amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is some orange sweetness, bit if caramel and a little resin hop. Taste is citrus and get the orange peel, light bitter that is covered with the sweetness, easy finish.

Marmealade Sky is a easy drinking 4.9% American Pale Ale brewed with Amarillo hops and sweet orange peel. Both of those ingredients come through really nice. This one pours a dark amber color with a small one finger head. Slight lacing throughout the glass. The orange peel in this brew is what comes through the most. Lemon and grapefruit from the Amarillo hops come in next but the peel is the key here and it really gives off a nice and inviting aroma. A strong caramel malt backbone finishes it off.
The taste is really more of the same. I’ll first say that this is a fantastic sessionable beer. Definitely a different take on a Pale Ale. I’m finding myself stepping away from the stronger IPAs these days and really enjoying the smaller abv Pale Ales. They can be just as hoppy and refreshing as a 7% IPA. The citrus is first up just like in the smell. Something I didn’t really pick up in the smell was the presence of some grassy notes. I did pick it up in the taste. The beer is rounded out by the lemon and grapefruit and caramel malt. There really are a good amount of hops in this brew. It’s noticeable with the very bitter aftertaste.
The mouthfeel is medium and creamy. Goes down like a good APA should.

Draft at Town Hall Tap. Pours clear ruby-gold, 1-finger thick white head, fine lacing. Nose is spicy hops, citrus; a bit generic-smelling, if that’s possible. Flavours of bright grapefruit and orange, nice spiciness, somewhat "juicy" in the mouth, which I always like. Tart and bright, and effortlessly drinkable, if a bit forgettable on the nose. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 18, 2010
On cask, described as an APA brewed with Amarillo hops and sweet orange peel. Big citrus aroma up front from the Amarillo, orange is accented due to the peel. Taste is big citrus up front, with the orange peel mixing in perfectly to the hop character and extending it, with a slighty bitter finish. Excellent brew!

Cask. Murky orange pour with a foamy white head. Nose of caramel and citrus. Taste is orange upfront, nice mellow hop finish. Good brew. bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Draft. Pours orange with a medium white head and some lacing. Sweet, fruity aroma with citrus, orange, and grapefruit notes. Flavor is malt with more orange and grpefruit citrus notes and a bitter hop finish. Light/medium body with medium carbonation. Decent. islay (3004) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Pint pour, on tap at the new Town Hall Tap location. Listed as “Marmalade Sky Pale Ale” (i.e., “Pale Ale” appears to be part of the official name). Consumed on 11-20-10. Pours a hazy amber with a very cool, light orange / pumpkin / cream-colored head. Produces nice lacing. Piney, resiny aroma. Floral, fruit-sweet smell. Also cotton candy in the aroma. Taste features a dry start, metallic middle, and creamy finish (creamy in flavor, not texture). Hops very noticeable. Sawdust and wood chip flavors. Also a buttery taste. Medium body. Lively and crisp in the palate. Marmalade Sky is very pleasant and a good, flavorful entry in the American pale ale style, though I doubt it will prove particularly memorable. The beer was served excessively cold, unfortunately numbing the aroma and flavor.
