2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
A mildly hoppy beer. It does not overwhelm the palate---not complex in flavor. A good beer after working outside nin the cold---accompaning a warm lunch.

This beer looked great, nice packaging good pour. Reddish copper color. But the flavor was musty, almost reminded me of sweat. Thankfully this was not my beer and I only had a few sips. Skip this one.

12 oz bottle from a verity pack. Pours light amber with a short-lived white head. Aroma is of bready and caramel malt, hints of citrusy hops and ripe fruit. Body is full and crisp. Taste is citusy, herbal hops, some shellfish and something else. Finish is long and unpleasant. Nice drain pour.

Amber color with a nice short white head. Some lacing is present. The aroma is like fresh pine needles. Sweet flavor with a light to medium body. I get a little pine cleaner in the back of the throat. Weird flavor, but clean finish.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Looks like a pale lager, perhaps just a tad darker. Big foamy nearly yellow head that fades within a minute or 2. Smell is quite floral hoppy, like a big IPA. First taste is on IPA style, but this is a pale ale? Too strong for my girlie lager loving tste buds. For the amount of hop bitterness, it certainly does have some decent co2. Long bitter medicinal IPA finsh. Old dependable saranac, she has come a long way. I’m quite surprized this is not rated higher, considering how much on style it is for an IPA.

As with a large number of large businesses, when you try to deceive the public in marketing, you plagiarize the successful local business. In this case Sarnac uses the moose name to bad effect.
The beer is a very weak example of a pale ale. Weak hops, weak taste, weak aroma just to show weak creativity. Yea its a bad beer

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Crisp copper coloured body with a thick dense tan head. Aroma of mild low alpha acid hops, some light old malt and a touch of sugars and medicine - not too nice. Light-bodied; Sharp medicinal flavour with a little hops and a very small amount of hops with very little else - pretty bland. Aftertaste is mild as well with almost nothing going on - not too good. Overall, a pretty awful beer with no good flavours and no complexity. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 18-November-2011 for US$1.19 sampled at home in Washington on 24-January-2012 the day before leaving to go up to the Adirondack Mountains.
