COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crisp, clean taste; look for the trademark hop aroma and finish from "dry-hopping" and wheat malts.

omhper (19378) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2002
Golden coloured. Dry and bitter. Complex. Similar to a Czechish pilsener.

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 13, 2003
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.

Leighton (11004) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2009
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.

faroeviking (10289) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 18, 2007
Bottle. Nice clear golden color with a medium mostly diminishing white head. Malty and fruitish hoppiness in the aroma, bit yeasty. Crisp fresh malty and hoppy, bit sweet flavour. Some bitterness in the finish.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2005
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.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2003
Clear, straw-colored lager. Small, creamy white head. Nice crisp hop aroma. Hints of chicken broth and copper. The flavor is mildly malty and citrusy. Good, light hop balance. Mild bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Crisp, clean finish. Decent for the style. Don't go out of your way for it.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2008
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.
