Labeled as Adirondack Lager. Pours a hazy amber. Minor aroma of hops and malt. A little hoppy for my taste and in this class.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz Bottle into pint glass. Half finger worths head, dissapated quickly. Nice orange/yellow amber color, noticeable carbonation bubbles floating up. Aroma is very weak, almost maybe citrus? Very carbonated mouth feel, followed by generic lager taste which quickly leaves the mouth.
A very weak beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with off-white head that quickly disappears. Getting a lot of sweet toasted malts off the nose with a little herbal hop. Taste is sweet with grainy cereal and toffee notes. There is a bit of hop bitterness to balance things out. Not up there with a good German marzen, but still a solid beer from Saranac.

Not much to the beer, a typical lager. Gorgeous color and thats about it. Little aroma, medium body, light hops.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle- Deep copper color with a small head that fades to some lacing. Mild sweet caramel and malt aroma. Starts a bit sweet with malt and a mild bitter finish. Fairly light body with some carbonation. Nothing fancy, just a nice middle of the road beer.

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.
