It doesn't have the punch of an Otter Creek or Thomas Hooker Oktoberfest, but as 'The Bros' point out, it is extremely drinkable. Not a session beer, but definitely a beer to pair with brauts & sauerkraut.

A little on the pricey side but a well rounded beer nonetheless. Smooth from the start with gentle malt flavor and a hint floral grains on the finish. Flavor lasts a second or too after swallowing. Nothing spectacular here but a good starter to the style. Very drinkable.

Mediocre. Typical for Saranac; not great, but not exactly bad. I would take it if nothing else good were available, but it lacks any punch or character.

A great representation of the style by an American brewer! The mouthfeel is a bit thin for my taste, but otherwise, this is a fine brew indeed.
