From the bottle . Hazy amber with white head. Better than the commercial mega brewery lagers. But not anything too exciting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

floydslip (378) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Somewhat cloudy light amber beer with a thin white head that dissipates quickly into a surface film. Slightly pungent nose with hints of sour dough, orange, and light malt, but overall the aroma is slight. Flavor is a bit bolder and is dominated by a single note of medium citrus hops with little else. The body is pretty good with tight bubbles, and its smooth, but unfortunately its also boring and non-descript. Decent beer, but not one I would ever seek out again.

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

Light amber pour, mild head and lacing. Aroma is semi malty and grainy. Taste is malted caramel and dry. Decent lager. Easy to drink, light.

Patrickctenchi (6423) - 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..

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.

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.
