On tap at the brewpub. Served in a standard shaker glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid finger of white head with decent retention.

Smell: A pretty nice crisp and juicy aroma with hints of citrus and floral hops. Citrus hop hints of orange, grapefruit, melon, and lemon along with the added orange peel. Hints of floral and herbal hops. Soft malt hints of caramel, biscuit, cracker, and yeast. Pretty citrus forward.

Taste: Like it smells, juicy and earthy with some good notes of citrus fruit and herbs. Upfront citrus notes of orange peel, grapefruit, lemon, melon, and apricot. Also some floral and grassy hops with some pine. Pale malt notes of caramel, grains, cracker, and yeast. A very solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp, juicy, clean, and drying.

Overall: A pretty solid citrus forward Pale Ale. Good juicy orange citrus flavor with a moderate body and bitterness. (979 characters)

Had an imperial pint at the newly opened Town Hall Tap. I thought this made a great session beer, sort of a pale ale with British influence. There was a cloudy amber body with a two finger white head. The aroma and flavor were full of orange and citrus notes. Mild biscuit malts provided a bit of balance, but the earthy and clean orange notes are delicious. Check this beer out for a fresh take on an old style. (412 characters)

I had this on-tap at Town Hall Tap. Served in a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a slightly cloudy amber color with a layer of off white head that sticks around quite nicely.

Smell: I'm getting some toasted malt along with a nice citrus hop note. This isn't a very strong smelling beer.

Taste: Nice balance to this beer. Citrus peel hops along with a slightly fruity hop component. The finish is hoppy and rather bitter.

MouthfeeL: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: I thought this was a really solid pale ale. The hop profile was very well done and it was quite easy to drink. I'd have another. (634 characters)

On tap at Town Hall in June 2010. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a nice orange-copper color tending toward orange with a nice white head and a good amount of lacing. The nose is really quite nice with a good dose of hops and a lot of orange peel. The taste is a bit bitter with some nice orange...well, marmalade. Feel is nice and bitter with a bit of orange pith. Drinks quite well; nice and sessionable. (402 characters)

Review from notes:

Poured from a growler dark orange/amber, good sized white head, sticky lacing

Lovely citrusy aroma, lots of orange and pineapple, very little in the way of pine. Juicy fruit-centric and I love it!

More orange in the nose than in the flavor, but there's plenty of orange peel characteristics, lightly bitter, great balance between sweet, citrus juiciness and the hops. God I love Amarillo hops!

Good body on this beer, medium full, perfect for a pale ale.

Great drinkability. The low(er) ABV made this one easy to quaff, but the hops can take over after time. A couple tulips out of the growler was perfect. (631 characters)

This beer arrived a cloudy orange color. The head is half on inch in height, and recedes quickly into a small cap of lacing. The aroma is of grapefruit with other citrus notes. The taste is quite bitter for a pale ale with some citrus note. Quite honestly, I thought the bitterness masked the taste of the beer too much for my liking. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a nice beer. However, being that Town Hall makes so many great beers I can't see myself drinking this again. (519 characters)

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. (250 characters)

Always on the lookout for a good session beer I had to try this seasonal when I was at Town Hall in Minneapolis.

Beer is orange and hazy and forms a head of medium bubbles. Lacing is high and carbonation is moderate. Head has a lot of staying power. Looks interesting.

Aroma is a little weak but kind of citrusy but not like hops more like an orange...oh Marmelade sky...I get it.

Beer is light in body and has some mild bitterness at the back end of this beer. There is some nice fruity character in the middle of this beer but the sourness of oranges doesn't come through at all. There is a hint of some kind of orange peel, mild citrus hop character. Interesting overall but not my favorite APA. (703 characters)
