Saturday morning, Town Hall. Gotta love it! Drank from a generic pint glass.

Appearance- Pours a nice orange yellow with a big beautiful bright white head that is as fluffy as it is white. Plenty of thick lacing along with a nice cap and collar for the duration of the brew.
Smell- Beautifully fruity and plenty hoppy, the smell alone makes me doubt the merits of this being a Pale Ale! Hints of pine escape but the nice sort of citric hop rules the nose. Plenty of grapefruit and something almost watermelon like as well.
Taste- Starts aggressive and pretty damn bitter as a blast of crab apple and lemon bites the tongue hard. Slightly earthier than I thought it would be (judging from the nose) but there is a definite grassy aspect. The malt doesn't hide though as there is a bit of a caramel thing in the finish. It’s not sweet but it does cut into the bitter a bit. A numbing earthy staleness lingers and the hops are sort of vegetable like in the aftertaste. Too long of a dry hop maybe?
Mouthfeel- Crisp carbonation that really has a nice bite. The body is light and airy.
Drinkability- The smells great and tastes great but the finish is pretty weak. It borders on cardboard as it might be slightly oxidized. Maybe I'm over thinking it as the rest of the beer is really nice but not my favorite Town Hall offering.

Price: $5.25 Served In: Pint Glass
