1st sample at the brewery yesterday. it is pale golden with large head.(their taps were causing all pours to be foamy) Aroma is pale malt, slight hopcitrus and honey. The flavor is pale malty, slighty crisp, with finishing hops and some citrus. Average

Bottle. Rich gold appearance. Typical hops/malt lager aroma profile, but with a surprising berryfruit accent. Both refreshing and rich flavoured, with a pleasant gritty mouthfeel and evident quality ingredients. Well-balanced hops and malt flavour with a spoonful of strawberry on top. A quality lager.

Huh...I could’ve sworn that I drank and rated this just a few weeks ago. I had it on tap at Colter Bay in Buffalo, NY. Regardless, this was a bottle. Poured a clear gold, light bubbling...nice little islands on the head. Smells of toffee, banana bread. Taste is similar, really thin mouthfeel, easy to drink.

2010-12-28. Lightly hazy golden yellow body with a foamy white head. Aroma of sweet lightly grainy pale malt. Flavour is similar, simple sweet lightly grainy pale malt character, very light bitterness. Average plus palate. Decent but a bit dull. This is about what you’d expect for a mainstream offering from a small brewer. Okay.

All I know is that once I finished the beer Team Canada started winning against the Czech Republic. Final Result 7-2!
On tap at HSBC Arena, Buffalo

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2011 [3526-20101228] Tap. Mild graininess in the aroma. Clear, light brown body with a quick foamy white head. Some sweet grains continues in the flavour. Medium body. Fair.

My firs pint of saranac flying bison brew. Clear gold Next to no head. Nose is toasty malt, Light caramel, a small amount of floral hop. Flavor is caramel, lightly toasted malt, se floral and peppery hops, a bit of tha flying bison malt character. A bit hopper in the finish but on the cloying side. Low carbonation.

Draught at the New York Wine and Culinary Center. Pale gold with some interesting lacing. Hugely fruity, ale-like nose, with lots of muscat. Grainy, sweet, fruity flavor. Bready, wiht cracker-like malt. Huge bitterness at the finish. Interesting and original, though a bit weird for a lager.

Purchased sixer at some beer store in Tonawanda where only cash was accepted. Needless to say, had to run to ATM to get cash. Dark gold with white head. I think it is solid. Stick lager. Not much of a lager fan but have had two I have enjoyed in last week now.

Bottle as extra from trade. Clear golden with LARGE, white, big bubbled head, infection...? over carbonation...? I’ll soon find out. Aroma is spritzy, sprite with lemon, semi-dry. Sweet lemon flavor with same sort of sprite, this has to be an infection but I can see the basis here with the same grain and light hoppiness that you would get out of a traditional premium lager. Light body with big bubbled carbonation, straight up infection. Wow, so this is what an infected premium lager tastes like. Almost like a berliner weisse with the lemon and light citrus but where is the sweetness coming from?
