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.

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!
