Leighton (19499) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2009
Perhaps the most standard Saranac brew. A nice sipping lager to savor in the Central NY region. Pours a light amber tone with a medium head. Hoppy aroma and a flavor of malts and mild caramel. Pretty drinkable.

harrisoni (17572) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2009
Bottle from GBBF 09. Yes, not a bad little lager. It has the requisite hop bite, decent malt and nothing out of place. I thought this was pretty solid. Decent hop for the style. Would happily drink this again.

Copper brown, not much head. A bit sweet, rubbery malty nose. Medium-bodied malty, balanced. Sweetish, a bit hoppy aftertaste.

brokensail (16222) - 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.

Bright copper colour. Aroma is toasty, caramelly, with a slight nuttiness. Slightly sweet accent, with caramel and light toast. Slightly oxidized astringency in the finish.

bhensonb (14481) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Bottle from a mix box at the Roseville BevMo - labeled Adirondack Lager. Pours copper amber with a fizzy off-white head. Sort of a warm caramel aroma. Med body. Flavor is caramel with some light grassy hop. Smooth. Soothing even. Not exciting.
