Love Saranac, but this one isn't anything special

More hoppy than a typical pilsner but the hops aren't overpowering. Good hop flavor profile - May 31, 2014
Refreshing, crisp, and light. profile - May 23, 2014
Really unique hops flavor, complex and deep, without overpowering

Pils are not my favorite, but this was quite a nice beer. Not overly hoppy. Very well balanced.

Kind of reminds me of the Victory Hop Devil... 3 stars for both because they were very good, but nothing extremely special about the taste

***as of 2015 now called summer pils*** Golden clear in color with effervescent bubbles and 1 finger of frothy white slowly dissipating head. Citrusy hop aromas. Clean crisp refreshing with a slight bitter hop finish. A bitter twist on a pilsener and very sessionable. Now in 2015 called summer pils. Very similar but the hop twist is a little more muted and it has more of that pilsener aroma. Liked the wild hop better. Not bad but not as special. profile - July 14, 2013
Part of the 125 years series. Quite bitter compared to most Pils. Hence 2 stars. A
