COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich, smooth ale has a soft, malt character with a medium body. Look for hints of toasted malt flavor, slight hop bitterness and an amber brown color.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2006 This is not one of Saranac’s better efforts. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium brown color with only a trace of a tan head that fades very quickly. The aroma is sour nut. The flavor is also sour nut and light malts with a sour tangy finish. Fairly blah.

Bottle. Another one from Chris’ holiday case that I got for Christmas. Color is clear copper with lots and lots of lace. Aroma is non-existant... maybe some noble hops there? Flavor is fruity and hoppy with a little sweetness and a nice bitter biting finish. Body is light and carbonation is solid. Ok beer, but nothing to go out of your way for.

Pours a clear light brown color with a nice amount of foamy white head. Aroma is sweet but watery with not much of anything. Flavor is very light and smooth, a very very small nutty flavor with a lot of sweet malts and a lot of water. Overall, i found this beer watered down and lackluster.

12oz bottle-pours a light tan/offwhite head. Color is amber/brown. Aroma is malty, roasty then a bit of hops. Taste is malt, then some bitter shows up, but overall-smooth, a good beer and refreshing.

Roasty, malty nut aroma. Pours reddish brown with a tiny head. Shows some hop character. A little rusty flavor on the finish. Shows some character, it’s at least got some flavor and a bit of a carbonated, somewhat medium bodied mouthfeel, and a little nut flavor in the finish, but overall kind of plain.

Bailz316 (223) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2005
Amber color with small tan head. Notes of caramel and toffee. Tastes both sweet and then roasty. Somewhat malty. Light-medium bodied. Too watery for a brown ale. Like most Saranac’s its got some good attributes but leaves you wanting more.

This was not that good. It poured a brownish red color with a small white head. Not as much "nuttiness" in the flavor as expected. Rogue makes the better version.

very easy drinking brown ale. no real bite to it, but not unpleasing, a bit nutty, would consider a full 6 of this one

Ritterkreuz (179) - Seneca Falls, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2006 Slight skunky aroma, this beer has a thick head at first and is a fairly dark amber for an American beer. A bitter finish to every swallow, this beer is best when its not quite room temp.
