look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

16 ounce pint - $6.50 at Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a dim, clouded, golden-orange body with a half-inch of white head. Good lacing.

Smell: Pithy lemon overneath scantly bready wheatiness, low resins, low spices. A bit of a modest aroma overall.

Taste: Soft white wheat, a slight graininess and a nibble of brioche. Lightly sweet. Resins, lemon and a pithy quality. Small pinch of spice. Medium bitterness. Drying, pith-rimmed finish with a hint of lemon juice moistened bread. Some bitterness lingering.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It's okay, like many Saranac beers (the better ones at least) it just falls a bit short.
