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.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2005 Dec 2001: Very pleasant, but simple. Above average for the brewer Id say. Nice color, average head; good caramel note in the aroma; clean, sweet, crisp initial taste which fades and becomes rather boring at the end. 7/3/6/3/13 3.2

Nov 2005: Smallish fizzy head immediately dying into a translucent, thin cover atop a totally clear amber body...light caramel nose, hints of cherry and pine, pretty indistinct and weak...body quite watery, lightly sweet and a bit grainy, seems to be some saccharine or other artificial sweetener taste there that really helps to kill it...bit of smokiness fails to redeem a fairly bad vienna.

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

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.

Goldenrod color, virtually no head. Very little lacing. New smell? no. A little appley, that's all. Virtually flavorless taste, with only a slight bitter bite. Reminds me of drinking unsweetened iced tea. Champagne like mouthfeel. I'll never try this plain, boring brew again.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2004
Icky, sticky fake caramel taste, rancid aftertaste, no hops. Tastes like syrup without the pancakes...a lot is missing here.

Clear amber with quickly deflating head and noticable lacing. Green hop aroma, fairly innocuous flavor but decent ale that goes down quickly and smooth. Suitable for many retries.

Pours clear golden, no head. Sour hoppiness. Short suor and bitter finish. OK CO2 level. Poured most of it out.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 10, 2006
Bottle. Clear orange color with white head that didnt leave any lace. Starnge aroma of grape candy, husky grain, and light malty caramel. Tasted of hay and again of grape candy. Slightly tart on the tongue.
