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!

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.

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.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Draft @ in Oakland. Clear amber/orange with a small off white head. Aroma of floral and herbal hops, toasty caramel malt and light citrus. Flavor is toasty malt with a firm hop bitterness and light fruity yeast. Medium to light body and average carbonation. Decent beer, nothing offensive but kind of plain.

HighlanderOne (986) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Poured from bottle. Aroma of hops and malt. Good lookin amber with white head. Piney and floral hops with toasted malt ops are floral and piney and toasted malt provides nice balance. Grassy aftertaste. Surprisingly good.

Amber in color, nutty malt backbone to some hoppiness gives way to an overwhelming cheap beer finish.

Pours dark and clear with solid head. Nose is malty caramel kinda situation. It's kinda watery. Taste is caramel, decently balanced between hops and malts. Not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good hoppy bite. Balance with substantial malt body and mouthfeel. Nutty malt taste. This brew has great character!

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 (3446) - 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.
