3.73/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

No freshness date; Poured in a pint glass.

A - 1-1/2" off-white fluffy head with nice retention; Clear, bright, caramel color with a slight orange hue; Good lacing left behind

S - Nice balance of caramel and earthy and slightly spicy hops; Also present is a touch of toasty, lemon-like citrus, and floral notes

T - Much like the nose - lots of caramel, earthy/leafy and lightly spicy hops; Light lemon-like citrus flavor is present as well; The end of the taste is very wet and leafy and lingers with just a kiss of caramel

M - Moderate carbonation; Medium bodied; Leaves a slick, oily mouthfeel

O - This beer is pretty refreshing and one I'd consider to be above average for the style. I'm not one to drink too many lagers, but with the nice presence of caramel and leafy hops, I would like to come back to this one again.

Part of an assorted trail mix. Popping the top yields a bready waft of sweet malt. Pours to a orange yellow sparkling colour with an off white head. On the taste the brew is a consistent balanced combination of the ready malts and a noble like hoppiness. Taste stays the same throughout then the finish stays bitter and fades. A great brew for the style. Spot on. Very drinkable and flavorful with a disguised 5.5 AC.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from the 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: The beer is a solid gold color with some carbonation coming though. Very beery looking beer.

S: Lots of toasted malt and bread coming through. Rather like fat tire. Very malty on the nose, but in a very good way.

T: Easy drinking and on the maltier side which is right up my alley. I like the bready and toasty notes that come though.

Overall nothing extraordinary but very solid. I would never turn down this beer and would pick it up again in an instant. Very drinkable.

I like to think of craft beer as a caste system, but one that doesnt degrade the lower end of the scale. I put this beer towards the bottom, certainly not an untouchable (that'd be BMC), but also not royalty. However, I am proud to drink this and any Saranac brew on the principle that A) I spent five months doing trail work and climbing peaks in the mighty Dacks, and 2) that Matt Brewing is 100% AMERIKUHN, from Yootika, New Yawk!

T: light hops, could use a little more malt

O: good, solid beer from Saranac. What you would expect--easy drinking, but nothing to knock your socks off. Loses carbonation quickly. Good for the price, I would buy again. Good staple to have in the fridge.
