Saranac Lake Effect Lager....in a bottle

Appearance-a dark copper colored liquid into the pilsner glass, two fingers of head settles and sits in layers.

Smell-malt upfront, a mix of caramel and roasted charred flavors, a touch of alcohol and the lightest fruit.

Taste/Mouthfeel-medium flavor with upfront flavors of malted bread, alcohol appears but is controlled, very smooth with a touch of fruit, fairly balanced with a finish of spicy malt.

Overall- nice flavor here, possibly now a true Dunkel but a big flavored lager that's well worth checking out and a nice part of this variety pack.

Serving type: bottle
