"Marmalade"...not, "Marmelade"...no wonder I couldn't find this listing...well, here's what I thought...

from Wikipedia: "Not to be confused with Marmelade, a town in Haiti."

I'm picturing myself on a boat on a river, with tangerine trees and...

Lightly clouded, apricot/tangerine appearance, nice, strong & sturdy off=white head...ain't nothing' wrong with it.

Aroma: Estery, dark fruit, grape, cherry, and orange, ripe and lively, yet soft and lovely...nice. Beautiful.

Taste: Mmmmm. Full-bodied, great feel on the palate, nice heft in the mouth, Vibrant hop presence, full malt feel. Orange flavor jumps in and out, and bumps around, says Hi and submerges. Yum, I say. And, mmmm, mmm. Wonderful bitterness.

Well-made ale, this. I can drink it, and be happy, and drink some more. Best shared with a girl with kaleidoscope eyes....

Bronze body. Thin dirty white head. Lacing is quite sufficient. Nice aroma. Definite marmalade orange malt base. Splashes of citrus abound. Lemon, tangerine and grapefruit. Flavor follows suit. Caramel malt base with hints of orange marmalade. Bright citric hop tones accent nicely. Nice fruitiness with tangerine, orange, lemon and a little watermelon?? Bitterness is pretty clean. Great drinker. Finishes clean and smooth.

Stopped by Town Hall quick after work to grab a couple growlers and had to try this. Drank from a generic pint glass.

Appearance- Pours a chill hazed orange with a big beautiful one finger bright white head. A thin cap and thick collar remain along with plenty of thick rich lacing.
Smell- Lots of orange peel is apparent in this one. It's nice and fruity and just has that Town Hall hop smell. A touch of grapefruit and pine is noticeable but the orange rules the roost.
Taste- Starts with a nice bitter bite that is fruity and definitely contains traces of orange. The Amarillo's are noticeable but the orange peel really covers the natural sort of fruitiness of the hop. Maybe a touch of pine mixes in but nothing too over-the-top. A kiss of malt on the finish but very little as the orange peel lingers and lingers.
Mouthfeel- Medium body with a bitter, almost quenching feel with a nice smack of carbonation.
Drinkability- Really dug this one. The orange is certainly dominant but not too much or too out of whack with anything else. Easy drinking as hell and fairly unique. This beer is exactly what I though Tyranena's Scurvy was going to be like. This is 10x better though.
