2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
For being just your run-of-the-mill American Lager, I quite enjoyed it. I was really impressed in the palate department as it just seemed to go down really well. I didn't sense any of the chemical taste other reviewers indicated.
old amateur rating: Clear light amber color with an small white head. Fruity aroma. Flavor is good malty but are missing body. Blom (843) - Sorø, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2010
Yellow with a low head. Aroma of orange, pine and grass. The flavour is initially sweet and biscuit-like and settles in to a dry bitter finish. yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Transparent golden "macro" color and aroma. Rather faint aroma but definitely citrusy, especially lemon.
Medium flavored beer. Very drinkable, but not a lot going on. Still I’m stuck on the citrusy, lemony, sweetness.
Finish is rather short. Easy drinking beer. Good "conversion beer" for the macro friends out there.

Bottle. Poured golden with a white head. Aroma was malty but otherwise nondescript. Flavor was quite grainy and simple. Left something to be desired. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours a bronze body with a white head. Grainy some light earth tones and malty body. Thin and simple. I didn’t care for it.

12 oz bottle. Pours a light amber copper with a nice light tan head. Smells of grain, corn and grass. Tastes very nice. Hints of grains, hay, and a nice bitter crisp aftertaste. One of the better lagers. Nice job. ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - MAR 3, 2009
12oz bottle, sample pack. Pours a clear gold. Very small white head that goes away very quickly. Nose is of slight grain. Typical lager characteristics really. Flavor is bitter and the typical lager earthiness. Nothing really unique going on here yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Saranac Traditional Lager is a clear, very sparkling golden beer that’s topped with a thin white that stays put the whole way through and leaves nice sip lines on the glass. It has a creamy, fruity, herbal aroma with notes of grass, flowers and earth. It is slightly sweet smelling. It has a medium-light body that’s soft and foamy with a clean, dry finish. It has a fresh, bright flavor that’s slightly sweet and, again, grassy and flowery. It is mellow and incredibly sessionable. blipp (9275) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 29, 2009
Bottle. Pours gold with a fizzy white head. Sweet malt aroma, grain and straw. The flavor is on the light side. Some grain with very faint hops. Not bad, drinkable.
