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!

Can from Anthony. Odd am English style coming out from that area. Not a bad pale at all. Just a nothing pale if that makes sense. Straight forward easy drinking stuff. Ok

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Brassy amber with a whipped tan head. Stale caramel aroma. Taste is again, a stale, grainy bitter. Herbal hops, leafy. Not pleasant, exactly.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2013 Golden pour, medium head. Citrus and malty aroma. Very mild with descent hop taste. Not very strong. Eady drinking beer.

shigadeyo (2964) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2013

6/24/2011: Saranac Pale Ale... Aroma: Toffee malt and a bouquet of floral hops; undertones of honey, caramel, and cooked fruit. Appearance: Amber color, mostly transparent; thick, static head of ivory-colored foam; lots of visible carbonation. Flavor: Fruity (cooked apple/pear) caramel, sugar cookie, herbal tea, and bread crust; there is a really mild earthy hop profile and timid bitterness at first that grows through the finish; finishes slightly dry which is good. Palate: Medium-body; good mouthfeel; smooth and creamy texture, too soft. Overall: Just okay; a bit too much malt forward, even for an English-style Pale Ale.

12 fl. oz. bottle from Kroger in Harrison, Ohio. Rating #852 for this beer.

Headbanger (3051) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2013
12oz bottle 7/27/13 (12 Beers of Summer)-Pours a medium amber with a small head. Aroma of malt and hops. Taste of the same with more hops and malt. This medium bodied brew is quite tasty.

hawthorne00 (2262) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2013
Can (bb 3/14). Clear copper with a large white head. Biscuity aroma with mandarins and tinned peaches, some spices. Rather stale biscuit/ caramel sweetness. Dryish and a little peppery at the end. There’s not a heap of bitterness but it manages to be a little crude.

Drank several from the bottle and in shaker. Crisp malt on the palate with a slightly bitter finish. Nothing outstanding, but a decent beer.

Nephilium (1264) - Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Mild grain and citrus aroma. Pours a clear amber with a white head. Earthy hop presence, with a touch of sweetness. The noble hops linger for a bit before fading out. If you prefer balance or malt to hops, you’ll probably enjoy this more then me.

Pretty boring. Some hop pellet flavor but not much to satisfy. Short simple aftertaste.

Emeister84 (767) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Aromas of caramel, nuts, a touch of vanilla, subtle apricot, and grass. Dark, clear ruby-amber with a moderately lasting, off-white head. Off-dry, earthy, savory, and bitter, with some lemon rind-like citrus notes, and woody tones, almost oaky. Medium bodied with cleansing carbonation, and finishes with nutty malts, and earthy and citrusy hops.
