2.9/5  rDev -15.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Occasion: senses are BACK after a bout with bronchitis....
Glassware: nondescript pilsener...
Appearance: dark orange body with strong effervescenceand a thin, off-white head--nothing out of the ordinary...
Aroma: doughy, bready scents; malts are punchy if not pungeant...
Palate: smooth, slightly bubbly finish with a thicker, warming texture on the tongue...
Taste: full-bodied malts! as the glass drains, a balance approaches comfortability with not too much uniqueness..and I have had a good amount of Saranac...
Overall: a slightly weightier Saranac for the winter--bottle's scene is snowy and sentimental, but the beer is what it is--serviceable but not outstanding...fair for the price....
