UPDATED: JAN 29, 2003 Has a nice amber color and a malt/light-hop smell. Taste is malty, but finishes very bitter. Overall looks great, but way too bitter.

I was surprised by how good this was! Nice deep amber color, just like the real amber. Nice lace and not too much foam. Good hop background and very smooth. Ive been impressed with all the Saranac line. Too bad it isnt found around my area!

After a second sampling I agree with the first. A middle of the road brew. Nothing too spectacular to catch my fancy.

I liked this beer although I have nothing to compare it against. I prefer IPAs and stouts and this hit exactly in the middle.

Not as much of a caramel sweetness as I was anticipating, rather bland taste - no aroma. Pales in comparasion to other Saranacs I have tried.

middle of the road in all aspects... good for cook outs where those less versed in good beer attend

a true mediocre beer!!! and since i need to say something about it, it has too dry a taste for me. A little caramel flavor kind of makes it interesting. I wouldnt call this beer very bitter though. mainly just some malty/hoppy tones.

brewed with pure adirondack water - and that is the predominant taste here. the malt and hops keep coming and going - continuously overpowered by the water. some warmth at the back of the throat, but otherwise, nothing special at all.
