COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This summer honey beer was made using special American yeast new to our brewery, German Bohemian Pilsner malt, and one very small hop addition. It is a clear yellow/orange beer that is very smooth and full of flavor from the addition of many interesting ingredients. Orange Blossom honey, bitter and sweet orange peel, lemongrass, and Belgian Candy Sugar make up the list of crazy things that make this beer unique to the Town Hall. This beer taste most like orange blossom honey,with hints of lemongrass. It is very easy to drink...remember it is very strong.

Sample at GABF 10/08/2016, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. The beer is a hazy orange color with a medium thin off-white head that burns away quickly. Spotty lacing. Yeast, citrus and malt aroma. Medium body with flavors of Citrus, herbal yeast, malt and slight hops. The finish is fruity with a yeast and orange aftertaste. Decent overall.

5 oz. pour, on tap at the brewpub in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Consumed on 7-24-16. Nice, clear, bright bronze. Small to moderate amount of long-lasting cream to beige head. Stately and likable appearance. Weak, vaguely lemony smell. Much more powerful and sweet flavor. Both lemongrass and honey are unmistakable. Herbal, grassy, lemony, honeyed taste. Herbality is a nice contrast to the honey sweetness, but, nonetheless, it ends up far too sweet for my preferences. Harsh in its strong flavors at first and grates on multiple sips. Medium body, light for the ABV. Somewhat lively, frothy, and smooth in the palate. The aroma gets a 5 for blandness. The flavor gets a 4 for excess. Not up my alley.

Tap - average size foamy head, medium gold color, sweet honey aroma and flavor, maybe some mild citrus in the background, good combo of flavors, hard to put a finger on much specific, crisp finish, definitely good overall though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Town Hall Tap. Unfortunately, I didn’t catch it was a summer ale so I think that contributes to its lack of quality. Orange with minimal head. Aroma brings to mind brown sugar, honey, and maple as expected. Taste is......not good. A little flat. Honey is there but somehow still not sweet. Slightly metallic. Alcohol comes through at the end in a burnt sugar kind of way. I would not recommend. Go for Town Hall Tap’s guest beers instead.

Very interesting beer. Lots of citrus and floral aromas. Similar flavours. Sweet flower and orange flavours. Nice Belgian seasonal.

Tap @ Town Hall. Pours a hazy orange appearance with an off white head. Straw, honey, floral aroma. Fairly tangy, cleanser, floral, honey, a bit solvent-like flavor. Bleh.

On tap at brewpub pours a hazy copper with a large off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt, honey, and orange. Taste of buttery honey, flowers, and oranges, with a slightly bitter lemongrass finish. Interesting very sweet.

Low carbonation, but very refreshing none the less. Honey colored with little head. Slight floral and orange aroma. Tastes lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Flavors of spice and orange peel with a heavy honey presence. Slightly boozy finish.

Poured on- tap into a pint glass. A. Beautiful dark honey brown color. 1-2mm head that faded to a nice thin ring. S. Fresh honey, lilac, Fresh flowers smell. This beer smells like walking outside on a summer day. It really is just something different and great. T. A wonderfully smooth honey and lemon flavor. A sweet tingle of lilac. M. A nice smooth dryness with a slightly coarse finish. Light on the tongue and very easy to drink. O. This is something completely different for me. I’m normally a dark beer person. But this is something that I could drink year round and feel like I am laying in a summer meadow. This is another impressively different beer from Town Hall.
