Saranac Summer Pils

This pilsener beer is from the Saranac Brewing Company (Matt Brewing Company) of Utica, New York. It is self-described as a German-style pilsener with an American hop twist.

The beer pours a clear yellow golden in color. There is an inch of white, bubbling, foamy head. The aroma is mild, lemony, over toasted golden grain. The taste is lemony, grassy, toasted golden grain. It finishes dry with a mild bitterness. The beer drinks clean, with a refreshing carbonation. There is not a lot going on here, not much of a pils really, but the clean grain and lemon makes for a nice, light, summer beer.
