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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled: Mørk gylden farve. Tåget. Beige tæt skum. Sød, frugtig, sukret honning aroma. Smagen er også frugtig og sød. Ret tynd krop og tendens til at være vandet. Lette urte og blomsternoter, men dog overdøvet at maltnoterne. Lidt karamel. Er let bittersød i enden. Let at drikke.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Warm amber and a nice, golden head. The aroma is typical for a lager, but the flavour surprises me! The mouthfeel is rather full and there are nice notes of aroma hops, malt, caramel and the finish is nice and citrussy - but not in the hash grapefruit way, that I found in other beers from this brewer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours copper with a small off-white head that soon dissolves into an even smaller patchy head. Fast rising bubbles are numerous. Lightly soapy malt aroma with a faint hop nose. Medium hoppiness in flavor with a hint of yeast. Thin falling lacing. Palate is dry and medium-bodied. A very drinkable beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear, orange ale. Small, fizzy, white head. Good lacing.
The nose is soapy and beefy.
Well-balanced, crisp, tangy flavor. A bit grassy.
Light-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.
Not a bad example of the style, but not a good one either. Not one of my favorite styles to begin with, but a good Summer thirst quencher!
