Saranac Big Moose Ale is an American Pale Ale with a kick. The medium-bodied malt sweetness is balanced by a nice crisp bitterness from hand selected centennial and cascade hops. Look for a vibrant citrusy hop aroma that will leave you craving another swig!

Saranac Big Moose Ale is clear and golden with a big, foamy, off white head that has some oily bubbles on it. The head stays put and leaves thick lacing all the way down the glass. The aroma is straightforward: grapefruit and pine. It smells really fresh. Itís medium light bodied and quite smooth. The finish is clean and dry. It tastes really simple. Itís all grapefruit peel and pine resin. Thereís enough bitterness here to remind me that this is, in fact, a pale ale. This is sort of like if you made a simple home brew and everything went perfect. I canít stress the simplicity of this one enough. I like that a lot.

Bottle. Poured a clear golden body with a small fluffy white head. Aroma is bready, grapefruit and floral hops. Flavor is mildly hopped with a malty finish. Thin body with a tongue tingly mouthfeel. Decent APA.
