ryanscourt (1427) - 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 (11461) - 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."

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.
