Town Hall Lose Your Resolution
Keg @ Town Hall. Reddish pour with a small head. Nose is surprising. Very strong aroma that suggests, chocolate, cherry liqueur and peanut butter. Flavor is fairly muddled. Cherry juice cut with chocolatey brown ale. Not an ideal combo. Medium body, soft carb. A fiasco by THís very high standards

Town Hall Razzilla
On tap at the tap, pours hazy, sitting in red light so canít see the color really, with a thin head. Distinct hop aroma, pine and citrus, with sweet berries. Taste of sweet berry flesh and caramel malt with piney and citrus hops coming on strong and bitter toward the finish. Interesting, couldnít drink more than one.

Town Hall Tropical Wheat Lager
Keg @ Town Hall. Slightly hazy gold pour with a small head. Nose is a blast of tropical fruit. Mango, pineapple, passionfruit puree. Flavor is similarly fruit forward. Light bread backbone, soft grass supporting more tropical fruit. Fairly sweet as a result. Medium body, fairly soft carb. Overall, this could frankly be classified as a fruit beer. Decent as long as youíre into tropical fruit salad .

Town Hall Eye Wine
ABR 2016. i was really looking forward to trying this beer because of the wine barrel. Unfortunately I did not find the barrel to do very much for this beer. Gold color. Honey in the flavor and aroma, Surprisingly dry for a honey beer, and this might be the barrel influence. Minimal hop presence, which is fine. Dry finish.

Town Hall West Bank Pub Ale
Draught at the Town Hall Brewery, Minneapolis, MN.
Iím not quite sure if this West Bank Pale Ale is this one or the APA as they are named identically. Itís 4.8% so probably itís this one. As itís quite boring one itís probably the English one... Clear golden color with a small white head. Mild hops, sweetness and malt. Boringness.

Town Hall Dortmunder Lager
Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #53. Draught pint at the brewpub, August 2008. Bright gold with a fair head that dies to almost nothing quickly...aroma is a mixture of dry, musty, old grasses and weedy and some newer, fresher stuff - like new-mown hay thatís been pulled off a spot of last yearís grasses that have half-turned to humus...juicy and grassy-bitter in the body, light woody-toasty character, nicely balanced with excellent pils malts...full and pretty close to perfectly carbonated. Good one to go out on as this was the last trip I made to TH (at this point); sure hope to get back again and wouldnít mind seeing this one on for another go-round.

Town Hall Cara Java Brown
Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #52. Draught pint at the brewpub, August 2008. Dark caramel-brown with a bit of head, translucent...powerful sweet, smooth coffee aroma, coffee-with-cream-and-sugar I guess, and hints of nuttiness...this carries through into the body, which is pretty sweet and full, lots of lightly toasty malts and little to no hop presence...gets a bit thin towards the finish but still reasonably potent in the flavor and body departments. Quite solid.

Town Hall Warrior Double Dry
Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #51. Draught (pint or glass, I canít read my writing, and who cares after 8 years?) at the brewpub, August 2008. Pale and lightly hazy, on the border of gold and amber, some lasting head...funky-pungent nose with more resinous than citric character, wet forest...the body follows along the same lines with woody and acidic fruity notes, but it is indeed pretty dry, though thereís enough body (just...it thins out a little much at the finish) and juiciness and spicy, complex hop notes to keep it interesting and drinkable.
