COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saranac Pale Ale is a classic English Pale Ale brewed with six specialty malts and aggressively-hopped with hand-selected English Kent Goldings & Fruggles hops. Look for a rich fruity hop bouquet. A copper amber color and a smooth, full-flavored taste with a crisp finish that only comes from a genuine top fermented ale. Enjoy!

Bottled from BevMo. Dark mahogany hue. Earthy hopped nose. Distinctive English smelling hops. Earthy and malty up front with a moderate hop flavor to it. Well balanced.

6/22/2011. From bottle. Light copper color with a white head. Aromas of malt, grain, fruit. A bit nutty with light citrus and caramel. Not that hoppy and really a bit sweet.

From a bottle. Pours clear amber gold with a thin white head and some lacing. Smells nutty, malty, sweet and like yeast. Doesn’t taste like much, malt, grains, and musk. Light body and low carbonation.

floydslip (198) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Copper beer with a thin white head. Pleasant, but weak nose of caramel malt and not much else. Flavor has a malty sweetness with some nutty flavors followed by a light bitterness. It’s well balanced, but not particularly flavorful. Easy to drink yet not memorable.

Ratman197 (10192) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Bottle poured a clear amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of caramel, toasted malt and earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of caramel, toasted malt and light earthiness with a crisp dry lingering toasted malt finish.

boxofrane (2252) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle from Wegmans, Pours clear copper with a tiny white head that is gone before you take a sip. The aroma has a bit of a floral note but is predominantly a mix of undefined citrus and sweet malts. The taste does have a light bitterness but is really bland. There is a bit of a lagerish feel to this. Pretty poor.

ADesenberg (630) - Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle: light copper with a big off white head. Aroma is floral... Caramel and honey. Taste is nice... Much maltier than I was expecting, but pleasantly so... Toffee, bread, some cooked fruit. Very enjoyable.

Heavier body than I was expecting but the hop choice certainly helps this qualify for its English pale ale characterization.
