Surprisingly decent vienna lager from Saranac. Mild, mellow, and malty with a medium body. Nice mouthfeel.

Patrickctenchi (6197) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Hazy amber, short off-white head. Woody/bark....caramel scent. Taste is slightly tea-like, a little bitter-leaning fruit.... Watery... But, not offensive, just a bit unexciting..

shigadeyo (3637) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2013

6/14/2011: Saranac Adirondack Lager... Aroma: Bready malt with a bit of floral hops, toffee, timid fruitiness. Appearance: Nice amber-copper color with a respectable beige-colored head. Flavor: Average, well-bleneded amalgamation of malt and hops without anything necessary jumping to the front; just a bit of fruity caramel malt, biscuit, and just a kiss of hoppiness; mild to moderate bitterness; finishes slightly dry. Palate: Overall: Much better than expected from a "lager" as this is more like a nearly full-flavored ale with just the right amount of hops for the style (more like an Amber Ale or weaker English Bitter).

12 fl. oz. bottle from Kroger in Harrison, Ohio. Rating #715 for this beer.

brokensail (16111) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle from Shawn. Thanks! Light amber pour with a white head. Nose is rather seltzery. Some grain, grass, and toasted bread. Mild yeast, soap, and a hint of floral hops. The flavor is really just fizzy and abrasive. Seltzer water, grain, floral hops, and grass. Light toast, soap, bread, and yeast.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 14, 2013
355mL with Eye of the Sponger custom label thanks to womencantsail via BlackIPA. For real, there is a SpongeBob on this official beer label. Pours a sparking clear amber with medium off white foam. Spotty lacing. Nose is honey, sweet cherry, sugar, more of a fake dish soap cherry. Taste is soapy, honey, wheat bread crust. Soapy and dry palate with a suddy hydrogen peroxide thing going on.

Bottle from Mims Northfield MA. Light amber body with thinnish head. Nose is malty, fruity, sweet. Taste is also of caramel, malts and fruits. Some hops in the bitter finish. Okay. Nothing special.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of BLACKIPA!!!!!! EYE OF THE SPONGER!!! FUCKEN A BRO!!!! Pours a hazy dark orange appearance with a lasting cream colored head. Toasted malty, caramel, fairly dry, herbal, lightly grainy aroma. Lightly fruity, caramel, a touch nutty, mildly hoppy flavor. Cool name, not so cool flavor. Cheers Michael James!
