2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle post GBBF, Day 2, August 2009 as Saranac Adirondack Lager. Dark gold/orange colour. Biscuity malt predominant. Just a hint of vague grassy hop on the palate. A straightforward and inoffensive amber-ish lager. Not much else to say.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Dark amber body with a small white head. Oddly sweet aroma, dilute toasted malt. Very light bitterness, lightly astringent toasty malt feels wan and dilute. Average to light palate. DNF.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle bought at the USA Bar, BSF, GBBF 09. Off-white, or yellowish, head with spotty lacing over a crystal clear, amber body. Inviting smell of fruit-malty sweetness. Caramel and toffee malts in flavour with a welcoming bitter end to keep some of the malty sweetness at bay. Soft in the mouth. Tasty vienna lager (Hotel room, Earls Court 05.08.2009).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very malty and mellow, a great cigar beer. Nothing too complex going on here, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Medium creamy head and sweet aroma.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Sugary apple/cherry malt aroma. Amber with nice head and lacing. Sugary caramel malt flavor. Not horrible for a Vienna - par for the course for Matt.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a lightly hazed amber with a thin white head. Sweet old malt on the nose with some plum and old stone fruits behind it. Medium bodied, a bit of alcohol peeks through, which is odd for something so low in ABV. Spicy malt with a bit more sweetness and caramel. Lingering light bitterness with old fruit. Not good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear copper with 30 second thin off white head. The mild aroma has sweet malts, a bit of roast, hay and dark fruitiness. The somewhat thin body brings in both moderately roasted malts to sweet malts to faint grain and dark fruitiness. The malty notes fade by midway leaving a modest amount of dark grape and sweet raisin fruitiness. It gets a tad roasty into the finish as the sweet dark fruits finally dwindle into the after taste. Nice flavor.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
With its weak head this dark amber looked quiet sad that night. Sugary, sweet aroma. Taste suggests that bitter (cheap) hops were in use. They tend to leave annoying aftertaste.
