muzzlehatch (4773) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #53. Draught pint at the brewpub, August 2008. Bright gold with a fair head that dies to almost nothing quickly...aroma is a mixture of dry, musty, old grasses and weedy and some newer, fresher stuff - like new-mown hay that’s been pulled off a spot of last year’s grasses that have half-turned to humus...juicy and grassy-bitter in the body, light woody-toasty character, nicely balanced with excellent pils malts...full and pretty close to perfectly carbonated. Good one to go out on as this was the last trip I made to TH (at this point); sure hope to get back again and wouldn’t mind seeing this one on for another go-round.

notalush (5728) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2015
Tap at the brewpub - clear gold - nicely executed, clean example of the style - perhaps a bit drier than usual for the style, but the clean malt richness is certainly there, and the saaz character is spicy, grassy, and pleasant - a slight bit of acidity to it which makes it bit less smooth than it ought to be, but still quite good.

Draft sampler pours golden with a white head. Aroma of grains, caramel and some grass. Taste is grains and hay.

LilBeerDoctor (3737) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light orange with a thin white head. Aroma of pale bready malts, light fruits, cracker. Flavor of lots of bready malts, cracker, lemon, and light sweetness in the finish. What I’d expect from a solid dortmunder. 6/4/7/4/14 (3.5/5)

That1Guy (2192) - Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Part of a flight at the taproom. Pours clear yellow with a small white head. Pretty sweet upfront with a clean bitter finish. A hint of hops balances this nicely. Could session this all day.

On tap at Town Hall. Pours a a clear bright fizzy yellow, nearly headless. Aroma is sweet corn and yeast, overall simple. Flavor is same with bright carbonation and mild fruity finish.

Prufrockstar (1983) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Sampler at Town Hall. Clear pale gold. Honey, sulphur, some mineral. Light, crisp, easy-drinking. Light body, very pleasant.

Ericular (961) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Pours a clear pale yellow. Aroma is good with a little grain and some sweet fruitiness. Taste is not as good - light, fleeting, somewhat refreshing. The aroma leads you to believe it’s trying to rise above the average lager, but it falls short in taste.
