Saranac Amber Wheat

12 oz bottle as a single from Kevin. Thanks mate.
The beer pours with a lovely, dark golden color with a decent white head that leaves a little lace. There is a touch of haze to the beer which seems appropriate for the style.
Nose offers very little outside of some weak malts and a little grain.
Tastes are quite dry with a short finish. Plenty of pale malts with the faintest kiss of hop bitterness in the final flourish. More dryness in the aftertaste. The malts have a little biscuit nature about them, which is nice, but to be honest the beer drinks a little watery and lacks a real depth of mouthfeel. Some light caramel.
Sensible ABV adds to the drinkability for me.
Drinkable and OK, but this is not a beer that I’m going to seek out again.
