3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #99. Draught glass at the (late, lamented) original location brewpub, late August 2008. Pours the quite proper pale, foggy gold with a decent head and chunky foam leavings in the glass...typical lightly bready/yeasty, lemony nose, nothing outstanding here or particularly novel or spicy, just good honest and strong...full-bodied, lightly sweet at the front, fairly dry and bitter mineralic finish. Very solid.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brewpub - Poured a straw yellow in color with a small white head. A small amount of lacing on the glass. Aroma was not strong, but there was some of the orange and coriander that you would expect from a Wit. Flavor was also not very strong and followed the aroma profile pretty well. The beer was almost tasted like it was watered down... palate was thin too. Very uncharacteristic for this brewer. Disappointing...
