2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle. One of six beers in the Saranac Sampler Adirondack Trail Mix six-pack. Drunk in Arlington, Virginia.
Saranac Adirondack Lager poured yellow-orange with a white head that quickly dissipated. It had lively carbonation of small squiggly bubbles. There was absolutely no lacing. The main aromas consisted of graham cracker, the syrup of canned pears, and buttery yeast. The flavor lagged behind, a bastardized version of the aroma’s promise. There was even a hint of varnish lurking in the background.
If it was the only thing available or if it was the only non-macrobrew present, then I would drink it again. Otherwise, I would only use it to clean paintbrushes.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2015 Sweet malty flavor with light hop finish. Nice hop fruitiness to match with malts. Actually very nice. Balanced, flavorful and easy to drink.
Redrank now a little bit later. Thin body. Stale.

Bottle to English pint glass. Labelled Lager. Pours light amber, two finger head, no lacing, some retention. Aroma of caramel malts and grass. Taste is mostly sweet caramel with a hint of herbal bitterness, Medium light body, moderate carbonation, thin creamy mouth feel. Finishes with notes of caramel, herb and skunk. Not the best but not the worst either.

another rather thin and lightly flavored beer from Saranac, but the body is crisp and the beer well balanced between carmel malt and spicy hops. it still comes off a little bland, but not bad."

This beer reminds me of the half mad tirade that F. Murray Abraham does in the award laden film Amadeus. During the scene, if you are not familiar with the film he declares himself the patron saint of mediocrity. And henceforth this beer should stand as the benchmark of mediocrity. Double meh.
