look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a copper with two fingers of off-white head that quickly dissipated. The nose is lightly bready. There is some notes of caramel malt present in the flavor profile, but the taste is not very bold. There is a pleasant hoppy finish. This is a well-balanced red that is sessionable, but not terribly memorable.

3.39/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - A deep amber red clear enough to see the cabronation wonderfully

Smell - The smell is decent, what you might expect in the ways of a lager

Taste - A decent taste that is crisp and refreshing. It hits with a strong light beer start and finishes with a lingering yet enjoyable aftertaste similar to Guinness,

Mouthfeel - Excellent light carbonation with fantastic light taste

Overall - A fine beer but it misses the mark compared to other Saranac brews

4.31/5  rDev +28.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Copper amber color with decent head and moderate carbonation. Hoppy, sweet, caramel aroma. Malty flavor. Flavors are very well integrated and balanced. Slight spice flavor and the floral hop flavor also comes through. Finishes a bit drier than it starts. Could be a bit sweeter.
