COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally a summer seasonal, Moose Island Ale has earned a permanent place in the LPP&B lineup. This light golden ale favored by our more conservative friends in government — Governor George Pataki and State Senator Ron Stafford — is very low in bitterness and at 4.4% ABV, is a great thirst-quencher.

On tap @ Brewpub in Lake Placid. Very refreshing. Outstanding. Nice lacing. Light gold color. Low in bitterness. A nice summer brew. This is what Coors Light could be if it had character. This beer stood out the most on their six beer sampler that I tried at the home brew pub.

Pale yellow color like most big breweries. Not much aroma here. Ladies love this beer. Almost has a water like finish. Goes down easy but not much else. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

1st meal at Lake Placid with Patty was here. She got this because it’s closest to her light beers. Not much aroma, body or flavor. That’s what some women like.

2013-04-30. Crisp pale yellow body, small white head. Aroma is mild, grassy hops,lightly fruity, butter cup and apple undertones. Flavour is mild, lightly bitter, fruity, Average to light bodied palate, modest carbonation. Okay. Mostly inoffensive, but a bit dull. On tap at the brewery

It?s better than an american macrobrew...fresher...but not much more to say about it. tastes like light grains and not much else, very pale. Not sure what to say about Pataki liking this. He’d probably have preferred a bud lite anyway and knows nothing about good beer. Acceptable. It’s here and then it’s gone...forgettable. I wouldnt order this unless it was so hot I couldn’t drink anything else...and then I’d probably just go for a water... it kinda tastes like can somehow. Useful for refreshing the palate between pale ales in the sampler, however.

If it wasnt 100 degrees out I would think this beer would suck. It’s an amazing thirst quencher, ahhhhhhhhhh better than gatorade!

On tap at the Brewpub. Clear straw yellow color. Next to no head or aroma. Some grain at that’s about it. Not much flavor at all-some grain and a touch of sweetness. Good lacing though.
