Upstate Bohemian.

A malt forward version without the hop accent one normally expects from this style. Good, mild, clean, crisp, not Old World in approach but pleasant in it's own way.

Simply too mild for my tastes but it has it's place.

Yellow pour, good clarity, 3/4" white head. Aroma had some noble hops, minor in degree.

Highly carbonated pilsner, didn't pop with anything, hopping muted, malt muted, not even some euro lager aromas. Mineral, although the hops do seem to be the only thing present, not bad.

Saranac makes extremely pedestrian beers, this is no exception. Mild grain notes, noble hops, absent yeast impact. Easy enough for your mom to drink.
