Notes from February 25, 2013:

Town Hall Red Sterling Lager. Don't have a lot of information on hand about it. Let me look around a bit...Amber/Red Lager. 6.6% ABV. What hops, what malts? Not sure...

Clear, amber-y auburn appearance, small, but stable creamy-toned head. Nice, and inviting.

Aroma: Crisp and malty, sightly sweet, a little bit fruity, a little bit nutty, and a whole lot of likability.

Taste: Jumps into the mouth boldly, a tasty, malty, well-rounded flavor. A bigger, richer malt flavor than you're likely to find in any other amber lager. Hops are here, but low-lying, as they ought to be.
Tasty, tasty stuff.

This is the sort of quality brew that typifies the excellent output of Town Hall. Unfortunately, it's likely to be bypassed by the beer geeks due to the lack of popularity of lagers, the low hop quotient, the fact that it's not a bourbon-barrel imperial stout, etcetera, etcetera.

But it's damn good, without a doubt. Rich malty flavors rise up in the palate and roll around, leaving a long, warm finish. Plain ol' terrific.
