2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle poured in standard pint glass. Clear and attractive copper color with a finger of off-white head. The head soon reduced to a thin coat. Mild roasted malt aroma with detectable hops.
T - also mild and mostly malty; taste is similar to a marzen, with little hop presence or bitterness. Some sourness. I liked the nose a little better than the taste.
M - thin and slightly watery; carbonation a bit too low.
D - lacks complexity, boldness, or distinctiveness. Certainly not bad, but disappointing.

My "craft"experience in college in the middle of nowhere. Ok amber. Nothing to write home about but drinkable I guess. Bit watery.

Bottle. Pours an amber color with a moderate white head. Little skunky, like a lot of cheap lagers. Slightly bitter malty taste. Bleh.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium dark amber color with a light head covering and blobs of lace. The taste is unpretentious, yet easy drinking. Caramel malt starts things assertively, followed near the finish by mild bitering and carbonation. Not a big deal, but much preffered to the national brands. Easily the best of the Saranacs I have had. Recommended for sessions and warm days.

It’s an easy little beer, not much going on. Probably a nice beer on a hot summer day. Don’t think, just drink!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle to pint. Looks decent; a transparent light-copper with white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes semi-sweet, doughy, and lagerish-skunky with an average mouthfeel. Alright.

Bouteille 12 oz. 5.4%. Couleur ambrée. Arôme de malt et céréale fraîches. En bouche, malt, caramel, un peu d’herbe. Très bonne lager ambrée.
