More like it Saranac. Nice grassy scent from bottle, directly consumed. to of these balanced me steadily for the quoits match with Rob-o and Chris the giant. Simply put this is a very easy beer to consume. Longer body has pleasant dual tone of malt body. Direct and unassuming, this beer was a great compliment to the plethora of smoked BBQ meats we devoured.

355 ML bottle from The Beer Store in Monticello, NY. Pours a gold color with a soft fast to go white head. Aroma is a weak malt and flowers. Taste is a very weak with little depth hops. Palate is watery. This is a very bad example of style, if it is even an example of style. Poor

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a 12 ounce bottle into a shaker pint glass.
A: Pours a clear, light amber color with one finger of off-white head. Good retention and lace.
S: Sweet, citrusy smell. A bit of a floral aroma to it.
T: Malty base with some faint caramel warmth. Clean, lager-like aftertaste.
M: Light bodied, heavy carbonation.
O: Overall, Saranac Kolsch is pretty unimpressive in terms of flavor and character but is an easy drinking lawnmower beer, no question.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from BevMo. Nose is dominated by graininess and not much else. Grain with a decent malt backbone and a light hop flavor. Fairly clean.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Has an odd tartness and a lack of complexity. Might be authentic, but it’s not my taste.
