Clear, golden hued, good chalk white head.

Minor citrus tones in aroma, light spice.

Taste: brisk carbonation, moderate hops. Lemon and traces of orange. Light bodied, lean texture. No yeast character or even much of a wheat flavor. Filtered? Tastes, and looks, so.

I didn't derive too much pleasure from this one. Drinks down okay, but I didn't enjoy it enough to want another. (Had two pints on two seperate visits, a week apart.)

Also, this is one of the first times, I haven't taken a growler of a new Town Hall beer home. That says something.
No biggie, the next one will be great.

You gotta love a good wheat beer in the summer. This one was consumed on a sweltering, 90 degree summer day in muggy ol' Minnesota.

First off, this beer pours a translucent, yellow-orange color. A creamy, everlasting bright white head sits like a crown upon a drunken king's head. The aroma isn't terribly strong. A slight sweet smell hits my nose first. This is followed by a faint hoppiness. There are slight citrusy tones present. The flavor is very clean. Not too sweet, not too hoppy. Rather well balanced. There is definite tartness to this brew, however it isn't like biting into a sour apple. There is some citrus undertones and a clean bitterness at the end. The mouthfeel is very crisp and light.

Overall, this is a solid American wheat beer. Unfortunately it really doesn't stand out of the crowd. It is a must try, but I'd try some others first.
