Nothing special to look at or drink. Gold looking beer, typical head retention of a yellow beer.
Has some decent hop zest, I'm probably guessing its around 30ibus. Some of the zip might be from the carbonation, which seems on the high end.
Its not a bad beer, its a good beer to have around yourself to give to other people who don't like their beer to be too adventurous. But you're kidding yourself if you think this is an een average representation of a pilsner.

Pours a golden color however, not as light as other pilsners that i have had. The smell has a hint of fruity notes to it, however, the notes do not show up in the taste of the beer. The beer is a basic pilsner, for its class it is a good beer. Better tasting than the macros. The mouthfeel is without a lot of carbination. Overall it is solid but nothing special.

A= nice golden, slightly darker than usual but within limits, and a nice white foamy head which laced generously throughout consumption.
S= really really nice nose of hops and malts
T= immediately after pouring, I wasn't that impressed, mostly bland but clean yet bitter taste. A few minutes after setting, lots of nice body and taste. Then I was interrupted, came back about 10 minutes later and couldn't find much of the taste which had emerged, in fact the taste had become a bit watery. Overall, if you catch the nice mid-tastes it's great.
M= clean, crisp, with light but very-bitters lingering.
D= easily, and probably great with any meal

Bought as part of the Saranac 12 Beers of Summer mix pack ($11.99/12)
I must admit, this is one of my favorite overall styles and this one was by far the best in the 12 pack. The Saranack Adirondack Lager is also listed as a Pilsener but this is much better. Some nice fruity taste, well bodied, and highly carbonated which makes for a great beer.
