Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery North Is Ryesing. 5.1% ABV, rye pale ale.
Clear, copper/amber-hue, slim, off-white head.
In the nose: soft aromatics, slightly sweet and malty, spicy rye malt character peeks out. Not much from hops here.
In the mouth: Here's where hops come in! Assertive and brash, bitterness blazes the palate. Rich spicy rye malt dominates the mouthfeel. Bitter and sweet do a tasty tango. Lightly chocolatey. Taste keeps on ticking. I like this one. I like it a lot. Medium bodied, long lasting flavor, richly rewarding. Delicious.
I'm not sure what the name means, but I'm going to guess that it has something to do with Town Hall's current passion for the local soccer team.
