Warm color but lacking the tasted to do it color. Great for a warm afternoon when you dont want to reach for the king of beers. Or the start of a beer tasting evening.

Lots of Cascade-hops inthis one! A bit thin-ish though.

Dusty carmel nose, lightly hopped, not much going on. More malt and hops than your average macro. NEXT!!!

Not as complex and distinctive as I like, but a solid, inexpensive amber lager.

I purchased a Saranac sampler yesterday (the trail mix sixer), this is my first grab. So I had a bottle of this before dinner. This brew pours a sparkling medium honey copper. The decent frothy off-white head is mostly diminishing with fair lacing. The ultra light nose is toasted malt, spruce, flowers, earth, and alcohol. The bland flavor has a nice flowery balance and a slight alcohol spicy warmth. Truthfully, mine tasted a little stale, so I dont know that I tried an optimum sample. The average finish had decent bitterness, but again was unexciting. The light to medium body has a lively creamy texture, and the finish feels alcoholic. Easily forgettable.

I think this is a solid amber. Its malty and has a decent, uncomplicated flavor. It is rather drinkable and has a smidge of bitterness in the aftertaste. Worth a try.

Very malty and mellow, a great cigar beer. Nothing too complex going on here, but that isnt necessarily a bad thing. Medium creamy head and sweet aroma.
