muzzlehatch (4969) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #67. Draught sample at the brewpub, August 2008. Clear bright gold, a slight touch of lasting head, also a hint of lacing...grassy nose offers touches of lemon, some acerbic hoppy notes but rather weak ones...fairly sweet throughout, hops present all the time but muted, you have to search for them...mouthfeel rather soft for the style but not unpleasant. Pretty much the same quality as the Premium Lager which started off my tasting. detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Clear gold, moderately carbonated, slim white head. Mellow malty aroma with just a touch of hop presence. Smooth malt profile, nicely balanced with a slightly spicy, slightly flowery hop tang. Very smooth and easy to drink - a touch of smoke character (I don’t think smoked malt was used) in the aftertaste is intriguing. BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Draft @ Minneapolis Brewpub: Gold, light head and lacing. Nose of light chemically deet and crisp pilsner malts and noble hops. The flavor is thin, creamy but a bit lacking in hops. The finish is way too thin, just nothing there after the flavor fades. Immy (1958) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUL 24, 2007
On tap (sampler) at the Minneapolis location, RBSG 2007 pre-tasting dinner. Clear light gold with a white head. Sweet, grainy nose, light malt. Cereal grain flavors, lightly perfumey and a touch of honey. OK. chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2007
On tap (sampler) at the Minneapolis location, June 2007. Mid gold colour. Thin, but complete, white head. Not a lot of aroma - just a touch of grainy malt. Sweetish initial impact on the palate. There’s a modicum of hoppy bitterness in the flavour, combined with a little bready malt. Has rather more backbone than the North Star premium lager sampled just before but doesn’t make a huge impact. Quite pleasant and drinkable.

Brewpub draft. Clear gold, small white head. Real grainy with some subtle, sweet perfume and some corn and a small hint of noble hops. Decent for a pils. Light body, balanced. Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Sampled at brewpub prior to RBSG’07. Pours a clear, pale golden brew with an average white head with nice lacing. Aroma of light citrus, breakfast cereal, and honey. Taste is lightly carbonated, medium bodied with some grassy hop bitterness. Finish is clean, sweet and crisp. sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2007
On tap @ the brew pub: Pours a clear gold with a white head. Aroma, yeast, floral and grassy notes. Flavor, pale malts, some slight floral hop notes on the end. So so. badgerben (5328) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Clear gold color with a thick head. Barely any aroma, but just a bit of grain. Massive raw grain taste and oddly sweet for a pils. Some floral hop on the finish that bitters it up just a bit. aobecksy (700) - Middle of no where, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2007
On tap at Rock Bottom Minneapolis before the RBSG 2007 Surly tour. Needs to be very cold. Thicker than most pilsners. Looks pretty, nice lacing, truely clear, clean finish.
