ryanscourt (1381) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2015 Sweet malty flavor with light hop finish. Nice hop fruitiness to match with malts. Actually very nice. Balanced, flavorful and easy to drink. Redrank now a little bit later. Thin body. Stale.

Great all around beer. Smooth taste and easy drink. Great beer for mixed crowds at a barbecue or tailgate.

joejames (510) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Bottle to English pint glass. Labelled Lager. Pours light amber, two finger head, no lacing, some retention. Aroma of caramel malts and grass. Taste is mostly sweet caramel with a hint of herbal bitterness, Medium light body, moderate carbonation, thin creamy mouth feel. Finishes with notes of caramel, herb and skunk. Not the best but not the worst either.

slowrunner77 (10763) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 2, 2014
another rather thin and lightly flavored beer from Saranac, but the body is crisp and the beer well balanced between carmel malt and spicy hops. it still comes off a little bland, but not bad."

coldbrewky (1730) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2014
This beer reminds me of the half mad tirade that F. Murray Abraham does in the award laden film Amadeus. During the scene, if you are not familiar with the film he declares himself the patron saint of mediocrity. And henceforth this beer should stand as the benchmark of mediocrity. Double meh.

JaKeAFC (1049) - ITALY - AUG 20, 2014
33 cl bottle, 5.5%, 2.10. Amber color, almost clear, nice smooth creamy white head. Some caramel malts on the nose, quiet. Aroma is soft caramel malts, 5-cereals, cheese, chestnuts, earthy. Taste delicately bitter, balanced. Body is light, somewhat dusty. Short mineral bitter finish. Soft but biting carbonation. As expecting from a lager, nothing exciting.

Freaky_tiki (1119) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle brought back by my neighbour from his hiking trip pours deck stain brown with a frothy one finger cap that disappears quicker than my cousin when the cheque comes to the table. A slightly confused brew: more amber than anything else (somehow someone below me calls this a pilsner which is odd). Woody malts, sugary on the tongue & not as crisp as youd hope for.

KyotoLefty (9642) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle, as Adirondack Lager. From old notes. An amber lager. Slightly sweet, with caramel flavors, and a bit of hops. Nothing special. A little fake ad sugary tasting, but not terrible.
