COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saratoga Classic is a crisp, full flavored, German style pilsner with a clean hoppy finish. This beer is hand-crafted with the finest German and Domestic malts. The distinctive hoppy aroma and lingering finish are derived from Czech Saaz hops combined with the pure water from the ancient springs of Saratoga.

This slightly cloudy brew had a poor nose, fair taste and a terrible aftertaste. I was hardly able to finish the bottle.

Growler filled at Shoreline Beverage. I had to double-check this since it been retired with no ratings for ten years. Pours a slightly hazed gold with a thin-moderate linen white head that is gone before the second sip and leaves no lace. Mild aroma of malt with a few notes of noble hops. The flavor is malt followed by some noble hops with some mild lingering bitterness. Crisp and dry at the finish. Medium bodied.

jgb9348 (4729) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2003
Slightly hazy orange/golden colour with a super thick soapy off-white head. Aroma slighly yeastie, slightly wheatie with a sweet pit fruit smell. Light-bodied; Subtle apricot/peach flavour with some maltiness and hardly any hops. Aftertaste clean, but shows some persistent sweetness. Actually, nice for the style-definately worth trying. I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Chevy Chase Wine & Liquor in Washington and sampled it on 30-November-2003.

argo0 (11477) - Washington DC, USA - APR 3, 2003
Clear golden body topped by big white head. Aroma is strongly lemony tart/sweet and slightly floral. Flavor is too much lemon tartness, with nothing to balance. A little too carbonated.

A good pilsner, malts and hops well balanced. Decent carbonation, very crisp and clean tasting.
