look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

bought as part of Saranac's Summer Variety pack from Southtown Beverages on 4/26/13 for $ 7.99.

poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, served at fridge temp.

appearance: Honey yellow with a one finger white head that leaves little lacing.

aroma: gentle, slightly fruity, slightly hoppy.

mouthfeel: solidly medium.

taste: nice pale malt with a gentle hoppiness and just a touch of fruitiness.

notes: easy drinking, well made. I could drink this all day.

Pale, straw yellow fills the glass as tons of bubbles line the edges and add no loft to a quickly fleeting head.

Very little scent to note I detected mostly corny adjuncts with some lemon tones.

The taste is weak but mostly adjuncts of corn or rice. Faint touches of lemon or citrus hit the tongue but they are fleeting and almost imperceptible. I'm very disappointed in this entry as Saranacs are usually a lot of fun and tasty.
