Boittle courtesy of adneilsen ( thanbks AAron) poured a clear gold with a small lasting white head. Aromas of biscuit, light earthiness and a hint of citrus. Mouthfeel was light bodie and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuits, light earthiness and light citrus with a crisp dry lightly bitter finish. Yet another average beer from Saranac.

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

Appearance- light golden pour with small foamy white head that quickly subdues with very minimal lacing.

Smell- very citrus, tangerine like smell up front coming from the hops. Can barely pick out a slight sweet malty caramel scent. A bit of figs also.

Taste- immediate citrus kick from the hops, malts are barely noticeable but does finish with a slight nutty kick. Extremely dry on the back end, leaves very little on the palate.

Mouthfeel- good. Creamy and pretty well balanced.

Overall, pretty decent. The balance seems a little off and the dryness off puts me a bit.
