3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from GBBF 09. Yes, not a bad little lager. It has the requisite hop bite, decent malt and nothing out of place. I thought this was pretty solid. Decent hop for the style. Would happily drink this again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Perhaps the most standard Saranac brew. A nice sipping lager to savor in the Central NY region. Pours a light amber tone with a medium head. Hoppy aroma and a flavor of malts and mild caramel. Pretty drinkable.

Bright copper colour. Aroma is toasty, caramelly, with a slight nuttiness. Slightly sweet accent, with caramel and light toast. Slightly oxidized astringency in the finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Shawn. Thanks! Light amber pour with a white head. Nose is rather seltzery. Some grain, grass, and toasted bread. Mild yeast, soap, and a hint of floral hops. The flavor is really just fizzy and abrasive. Seltzer water, grain, floral hops, and grass. Light toast, soap, bread, and yeast.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a mix box at the Roseville BevMo - labeled Adirondack Lager. Pours copper amber with a fizzy off-white head. Sort of a warm caramel aroma. Med body. Flavor is caramel with some light grassy hop. Smooth. Soothing even. Not exciting.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Big head on the pour fades to leave a clear amber body topped by a medium eggshell head. Aroma is earthy hoppy supplemented by a bit of caramel maltiness. Flavor is unimpressive, mild earthy hoppy but not much else. Kind of just sits there. A perfectly adequate beer, but I expect more.
