Let’s let this thing warm up…
Flavor does get slightly better as the beer warms. Bitterness isn’t as sharp, and the taste starts with a malty sweetness and finishes with some bitter. Smooth going down. Highly drinkable just like the label says.
Before I forget, I’ll mention that the head was plentiful. The ABV is relatively low: 5.5%.
So what’s the sum here? I really disliked the beer while it was cold, but enjoyed it much more as it warmed. That said, it feels like a slightly upscale Bud.
Thus far, Saranac isn’t blowing my doors off by any means. Now…back to watching Van Wilder.
