Commercial Description
Crisp, clean taste; look for the trademark hop aroma and finish from "dry-hopping" and wheat malts.

    Presentation: It was poured from a 12oz bottle into pilsener glass.

    Appearance: It has a bright golden yellow color with great clarity and a thin white head that hangs on and just covers the body. Some lace is left behind on the glass.

    Smell: The aroma is sweet, almost fruity and floral hops are present.

    Taste/Mouth feel: The flavor has a light malt presence with a lovely crisp hop flavor that adds nice floral and citrus notes. Bitterness is mild and not overpowering. The body is light with a good active carbonation and a refreshingly quick clean finish.

    Notes: Kudos to Saranac for going with brown bottles for there pilsener instead of the more common green bottles. I never understood why a beer style that is so sensitive to light and freshness would be put into green bottles that allow more light to filter through it.
