Bottle from Market Basket
Brilliantly clear deep golden color with a small but long lasting bubbly white head. Graham crackery pilsner maltiness with some pomme and pitted fruits. Light floral hops. Crisp light metallic finish. Not horrible but far from a great example of the style. .

nice looking brew, very refreshing and definitely an easy drinker. notes of sweet grains, crackery malt, yeast, grassyness, light fruity notes.

Color: Hangover pissed yellow
Smell: I don't smell anything
Taste: Not Bad might be good.
Feel: feels like I should have another
Overall: I like Saranac alot big fan but this is not the one I would brag about. Bottom of the set list for Saranac. That I'm between song to calm people down and wonder what's going on before a cloud splitter or clouded dream

pours straw gold with a solid. tons of carbonation to it. looks like a Pilsner.

smells like adjunct. enough said.

taste is not bad. it's very plain and honestly this seems more like a Pils than a true Kolsch. easy to drink and not bad but not a Kolsch.
