COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This was a very simple beer to make, yet it is full of great flavor. One malt and one hop variety created this fine ale, both of English origin. This beer has aged since January, so don’t let the smooth character fool you...it packs a punch.

On tap at the brewpub in downtown Minneapolis. Nice orangish pour with a creamy white head. Vanilla like aroma, sweet, bit not cloying.Good subtle bitterness with some sweet candied sugar notes, some apricots and hints of butterscotch. Thickish, creamy mouthfeel. Good session starter.

At least this was available during my last trip to Town Hall. I was hoping to try the Wheat Wine and this beer. Let’s see if it is as good as it sounds. Somewhat fruity boquet. Pour is a hazy orange. Some bitterness on the finish, so I can see there were some hops, a good sign. Grainy on the palate; not super smooth, but yet, still very interesting. Sweet but not overly so. Pretty decent brew here.

Golden, cloudy chill haze. heather and honey come to mind. rich malt and alcohol. Town Hall always does better with their seasonal and single releases then some of their standard house brews. This early spring brew is a pleasure.

Pints on tap and cask. Light orange color with a thin head on tap, thicker and creamier on cask. Aroma was slightly fruity and grainy. The grains on the tap pour were overwhelming. It wasn’t to the "dusty silo" level, but definitely more than is necessary. The cask was much smoother and more rounded in the flavors. The dusty grains blended back into the body and let the barley come out to play. Just enough hops to say hello. Okay, but not what I was expecting.

On tap. A dark slightly hazy golden. Golden promise malt. Smells like a scotch ale, light aroma. Nice flavor.

Orange/Brown Coloring with White Head. Had on Tap and on Cask. Malt Aroma and on the Tongue....Sadly a Disappointment. Malt...Light Fruit Notes...but Overall a Grainy Taste That Cannot be Ignored. Much Smoother on Cask and More Drinkable. Decent Session Ale.

Didn’t get much from the nose on this one. Cloudy gold color with minimal white head. Faint nose. Grainy sweet tasting body with a little hop bite to it.

rating from what i remember from a week ago... this beer left a sub-par impression. it uses the same malts as macallan's, so i was pretty excited to try it-- because that's one of my favorite scotches. anyhow. this stuff is way too sweet. syrupy palate. slightly dry finish. i couldn't stomach this.

Some fruit aroma and also hopps. Light gold color, looks like a cider. Flavor is of sweet malt, a taste common in town hall beers. Really too sweet without anything backing it up, like a fruit flavor; rather, just sugar. Thin. I'm glad they gave me a sample. I didn't really like it.
