Our original award-winning Saranac beer is brewed in the German Lager tradition using Noble hops. We balance the hop bitterness with caramel malt sweetness, creating what we like to call a round beer.

12 oz. bottle. Dark gold/amber body with almost no head. Aroma is mildly sweet. Mouthfeel is thin with little in the way of taste...almost like its trying to be bland.

Pours amber true to its name. Head faded quickly. Smelled of malt and hay. interesting aftertaste. A lot of carbonation.decent but nothing special.

The "Lager." A warm red poor but weak head. A sweeter lager. Some malts and hops.

Saranac 12 Beers undated package (purchased 12-02): As wunderbier sez: "Frothy white head... deep copper-amber body... (and here's the part that I like!) ...a marriage of mineral water and beer." Perhaps Yuengling without the cooked vegetable rancidness?

Dont listen to Jonathan--these used to be the only kinds of beers he would drink. "Beer should taste like beer," he would say, shunning the very porters and stouts he now favors and savors. But he is right about this one; this beer is quite boring, though wonderfully chuggable.

Another summer beer from Saranac, not much to this one either. It's good ice cold on a hot day, but nothing else about really stands out. The B&T, Black Forest and Scotch Ale are the best Saranac has to offer.

Refreshing beer. Pours golden, surprisingly thick head. good yeast aroma. A beer that you could have more then one of at a time.

Dark gold on the pour, reddish-honey colored in glass. Smell of hops and malt (slightly bread-like) permeates, but aroma is weak overall. Flavor is mildly sweet in beginning, and bitter at end. Smooth on palate with medium body. Nothing too special here.

Good mixture of malts and hops in the aroma. Off-white, almost orangey head which never quite went away and left cream-colored trails down the side of my glass as I drank. The color was an absolutely perfectly clear medium coppery brown. nice malt flavor on first taste with a bit of caramel-like sweetness to it, but not overly so. There were hints of fruit here as well, although they didnt really dominate in any way but had to be looked for somewhat. This is balanced nicely with the hop flavor, which comes out especially on the finish. Carbonation level is good - not so high that its fizzy and a nice accent to the hop-induced bitterness, especially in the finish. Its definitely a medium-bodied beer, a bit richer in flavor than many of the lighter summer brews.

Amber in color. Looks a lot like a pale lager or a pale ale. Light, malty aroma. Thick, frothy white head. Taste is pretty bland, but not offensive. Overall, a decent lager.
