I nice beer to enjoy with my lady - she’s a pilsener gal. Light, crisp and refreshing, the Golden Pilsener from Saranac is a nice beer. Slightly bitter and wheaty, it should please most fans of the pilsener style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sustained white froth atop pale golden body. Strong grassy hoppy aroma. Taste is medium-strength German/grassy hoppy. There’s good grassy bitterness in the swallow, sustained in the aftertaste. Altogether, my favorite of the Saranac brews I’ve tried.

Golden Pilsener bought at Potsdam IGA, summr pack. Pale yellow colour with a thick foamy white head. Interesting peppery mint aroma, light corn and perfumey notes. In mouth, sweet crisp malt, with peppery hops, a bit grassy but pleasant. Not bad.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle. Golden color with a medium frothy head and columns of carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass. Aroma is skunky and grassy. Tart taste, almost tasting of a tart candy with apple and grassy notes. Not bitterness. As others have said, this is definitely an odd brew.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer is a clear golden color with a medium thin white head with pretty good retention. Thin, spotty lacing. Light floral hops and a touch of wheat in the nose. Light-bodied with mildly bitter hops, citrus and grainy malt flavors. The finish is bitter and almost too astringent due to the lack of any real flavor behind it. This one isn’t really worth going back to.
