Quite different from the usual Pils in body and taste. Golden head with lasting white lacing. Strong presence of floral hops in the body and aftertaste somewhat resembles that of a light golden ale. Very sessionable for a craft drinker and a strong possibility as a crossover beer for others. Although a new product, I think this is one of the best I’ve tasted from Saranac - hope it becomes part of their regular lineup.

sweet and fruity with a light pineapple aroma. malt syrup like character with a bit of hop and a clean lager type finish with a bit of pepper.

bottle. clean, lightly floral hop nose. clear pale gold with a large white head. light bodied and moderately dry. a pilsner with a floral hop that isn’t as spicy as your typical saaz. i also get a very soft wild strawberry note. light, easy, non-acidic fruits from belma. carbonation is a little lower than usual. lightly floral finish. nice rendition.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium sized fizzy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of pale, buttery malts and spicy hops. The taste is pale malts, grassy hops. Thin bodied.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2013
On tap at Half Time for growler fills. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Smells of grain with a little bit of hops but mostly just sweet caramel. Medium bodied sweet and grainy, little bit of lemon. .Kind of empty cardboard and paper tastes with more malt and wheat and grain. Finish is slightly better with a little bit of grain lingering not much hop presence.

Light, crisp, and easily drinkable. This is a very good beer. The aroma is fresh.

Saranac gets respect for this refreshing, hoppy pilsner. Crisp and clean like a pils should be, but with a nice kick of fruity hops.

Not enough bite for a pilsener for me. Sessionable drinking stuff. More drinkable than the session, less off tastes. Some balance in the palate.

Pours a nice golden color with a bubbly white head, the smells of hops is very faint but there. It tastes very refreshing a bit of lemon, almost no bitterness and enough of back bone that the after taste is refreshing. It is a good summer beer and a different type of pilsner.

Dorwart (2363) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Great big bright white head of frothy bubbles and minimal carbonation. Light creamed corn and sweetness in the aroma with some cardboard and spices. Color is a clear medium gold. Flavor is pretty mild and refreshing. Some light malts, lemons and rice along with a bit of hoppy bitterness. A decent pilsner.
