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: 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 really didn't like this beer too much. Not much to rate, if you ask me. Musty nose, gold color, foamy head. Thin, weak and some foul quality to the mostly malt body. OK - more substance than a macro swill, but that ain't saying much...

Amber with a low head. Aroma of biscuits, bread and flowers. The flavour is fruity and sweet with a quick dry finish.

Pretty dead looking amber. A bit doughy on the nose. Hard to describe the flavour, cara malts and a bit toffee banana. Not that flash really.

muzzlehatch (4975) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2001
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2005 Dec 2001: Very pleasant, but simple. Above average for the brewer I’d 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.

Icky, sticky fake caramel taste, rancid aftertaste, no hops. Tastes like syrup without the pancakes...a lot is missing here.
